post-views

The Lowdown:
This is for those of you who like your stats and want to know how many times a post has been looked at, it give some crazy amount of charts and let you know how often a post has been looked at.
Rating 4 Dragons

WP – jNewsbar Plugin
Premium Plugin

The Lowdown:
Available at CodeCanyon this is a pretty good newsbar plugin that places a footer or header floating newsbar that pulls your posts and you get to determine what pages to show it on you can even create multiple bars. While it is pretty good the one thing lacking I found was the ability to set per category.
Rating 3 Dragons

WP Dashboard Notes

The Lowdown:
If you have a site with multiple admins you will find from time to time it is necessary to communicate with about things that need to be done. There are multiple ways to acomplish this but a great one I found is the Dashboard notes. This plugin allows you to create sticky notes for the dashboard of your WordPress admin. You can give the notes multiple colours if your inclined the notes stand out when you log in so you eye is drawn to them to look at. This is a quick easy plugin to use and works very well

Download Now for WooCommerce allows users to download products from the product page without going through the checkout process. If the product is downloadable and the regular price is 0.00, the “Add to Basket” button is replaced with a “Download Now” button. The plugin can be customised from the settings link on the plugin page. You can change the button text, whether it shows for sale items to, and you can even customise the button CSS styles!

This plugin for woocommerce lets you select the available payment gateways for each individual product. You can select for each individual product the payment gateway that will be used by checkout. If no selection is made, then the default payment gateways are displayed. If you for example only select paypal then only paypal will available for that product by checking out.
