WordPress.com Launches Browser Notifications

https://wptavern.com/wordpress-com-launches-browser-notificationsWordPress.com launched browser notifications this week, a feature that delivers instant notifications of site activity to Chrome and Firefox users. Notifications are opt-in, so users will need to enable them before they will be active. Fortunately, they are also configurable on a per-site and per-activity basis, otherwise users with a larger volume of notifications might be overloaded.

Post Shortcode

sent in by Sachin Jadhav at https://sachin8600.wordpress.com/
The Lowdown:
This is a pretty nice plugin that will allow you to include post snippets in multiple places in your website. You can use it to build a shortcode you can place on any page or post or you can use the widget to add to a sidebar. The process of building the widgets and short codes is pretty complete and easy to use. all in all a pretty good plugin.

Affiliate Links Lite

sent in by Ni Ky at https://www.teamdev.com/
The Lowdown:
This is a plugin to create your own redirect links, it bills itself as a great way to mask affiliate links, it looks to be a useful way to create redirects but it has a quirk I am not too sure of the usefulness. That is it add an additional word and the end for your URL the default one being “go” while you can change it I am not sure of its use.
It does do tracking and you can create 301 redirects ect if you want Google analytics you will need to upgrade to the premium version. It uses custom post types for the redirection which is a different way of doing things. All in all not too bad of a plugin for creating links a pretty good way to get the job done but if you really want and need link creation I would recommend pretty links even their free version offers more than this one.

WP Email Users

Sent in by Siddharth B at https://techspawn.com/
The Lowdown:
This is a plugin to create your own local email/Newsletter system from your own website. You can send your emails out via any SMTP service you may have, Gmail, sendgrid, amazon and more. You can create your own templates for newsletters and more. The one feature I see of most value here is the auto responder that will allow you to send out messages for such things as registration welcomes emails, comment notifications and other events on your site people might want to be notified about.
This could be a pretty useful plugin when used correctly, but as far as replacing a newsletter system like Mailchimp not so sure of that with all the issues these days of getting around IP Blacklists.

WooCommerce Order Test

Make sure your checkout works. Test your WooCommerce order process in seconds. To enable, you simply check a box in the WooCommerce Settings page. You will enable the order text gateway, which does not actually authorize any sales or transactions. A good way to test the entire sales process within WooCommerce from top to bottom.

Skip Dashboard

This lightweight plugin allows WP admin user to skip default WordPress dashboard after login and jump straight to specific page. This is great for clients that may need to login to the site. If you can make their path easier, it’s a much better experience for them and less stuff for them to break.
