Login LockDown

The Lowdown:
This is a simple tool to help limit the number of times that anyone can attempt to login into your site. This can be a helpful security tools if your site is regularly under attack as many are. Set the number of failed attempts allowed and over what time period and then how long to lock the IP. You can even have it hide the login errors and immediately lock out invalid user names, just be aware if you make a typo on your user name you could lock yourself out.
Pretty straightforward tool and easy to use.
Rating 5 Dragons. 

 Restricted Site Access

The Lowdown:
Do you need to lock-down your site while doing development, this plugin is a great way to handle that job. You can also allow specific IP address though or send non-logged in users to a specific page. You can show them a simple message or send them direct to the login window.
Rating 5 Dragons

Admin Page Spider

The Lowdown
This is an admin plugin to help make the job of doing your edits easier. It creates a menu item in your admin tool-bar that allows you to jump to any of your pages for quick editing. Works pretty well and makes the job of finding those pages much easier when your are updating or doing your development.

Attachment Taxonomies

I’ve been waiting for this plugin to come out for YEARS. Once installed and activated, tag and category sub-menu items appear in the Media menu. Similar to managing categories and tags for posts, you can manage categories and tags for attachments. This isn’t 100% perfect in terms of full functionality. For instance the creation of the tags up front is kind of a pain, but I hear through the grapevine that this is going to be fixed soon in another revision. As someone with sites that can contain up to 50,000 images, this one is a big winner in my book.

WP Discourse

This plugin acts as an interface between your WordPress site and your Discourse forum.
It allows you to:
– Publish WordPress posts to Discourse
– Use Discourse to generate comments and discussion for your WordPress posts
– Select which comments are to be displayed on the WordPress site based on post score and commenter trust level
– Use your WordPress site as the Single Sign On provider for your Discourse forum

Refund Report for WooCommerce

The Refund Report plugin allows you to analyze which of your WooCommerce store’s products are being returned most often by providing summary data on line-item refund quantities and amounts over a specified time period. The report can be viewed in the admin or downloaded in Comma-Separated Values (CSV) format.
Important note: In order for this plugin to work, you must issue refunds on a line-item basis. Simply changing the order status to Refunded will not cause the items in the order to appear as refunded in this report. If the entire order was returned, please refund the individual line items as well as changing the order status.
Features:
– Use a date range preset, or specify custom start and end dates.
– Report on all products in your store, or limit the report to only include products within certain categories or only specific product IDs.
– Customize the report sorting order (sort by Product ID, Quantity Refunded, or Amount Refunded).
