Essential Listening

in iTunes by SugarLandTim from USA on August 8, 2014

The power of WP is in the plugins. And with over 30,000 of them, you need someone to guide you to the ones worth using. John and Marcus do a great job in presenting useful new and older standard plugins that you will want to use. Not a lot of fluff, just straight to the “meat and potatoes.” The audio quality can still vary a bit sometimes, but I leave every show with something useful. It’s my favorite WP podcast.

Advanced Advertising System

  • Version: 1.1.3
  • Author: Smartdevth
  • Last Updated: 5 days ago
  • Requires WordPress Version: 3.5 or higher
  • Compatible up to: 4.1
  • Downloaded: 2,217 times
  • WordPress.org Plugin Page »

The Lowdown:

The installation was pretty smooth as well as the creation of zone advertisers and banners. There was a small glitch in getting it to display in a widget but that was just an oversight on my part. All in all I like the way it works although the stats are still kinda limited in the free version I think they might be better in the pro version I will see if they are and report back. This is a pretty nice one but not quite there yet for what I need as far as stats reporting.

Rating 4 Dragons

 

AdRotate

The Lowdown:

This one performs quite nicely as the free version. There are lots of extras you might consider that come with the pro version. It does have some decent stats and easy to read as well as being pretty easy to get the ads, zones and groups setup and running. Some advantages of the pro is allowing your advertisers to login and see their stats when they want, they can create new ads that are held in cue for you to review. You get the ability to schedule campaigns and have multiple campaigns for same ad running at once. The pro version has a media manager so you can bulk add your adverts and manage them. Localize your adverts and get notifications when ads expire or new ads are placed. All in all the free version is pretty good and the pro version looks like a great hit also.

Rating 5 Dragons

 

Ad King Pro

The Lowdown:

This is a pretty easy to use ad display plugin. A bit confusing on the setup as it does not fully follow normal parameters like zones etc. It does do something cool like allow for a rollover banner. It did seem to have some issues with display in widget area probably a little css to help it out. Display with short code pretty easy and it has a built in shortcode creator to make it easy to create the short code you need. All in all decent. I did like the stats with this one it even creates a pdf of the stats for you.

Gravity Forms – Start progress bar at zero percent

https://wordpress.org/plugins/gravity-forms-start-progress-bar-at-zero-percent/

By default, multi-page forms on Gravity Forms will start the progress bar count as if the first step has been completed. For example, on a five page form the first page would display 20% completed before the form is even started, and the last page would display 100%. With this plugin the progress bar will display 0% on the first page and 80% on the last page (5 page form example).
