One thing that I don’t like about WordPress scheduled posts function is that it never tells me when the next upcoming post is where I need it most, within the editor’s screen. This plugin shows the date & time of the last scheduled post in the publish box, so you always know when the next scheduled post is coming out, letting you plan for the next one accordingly. This plugin also comes with a shortcode [next-scheduled-post] to show the next scheduled post in your theme.

The Lowdown:
Every once in a while you might be faced with the need to create a responsive menu. It is pretty redundant these days with mobile ready themes but once inn a while I have a client who has an older theme and is not yet ready to do a complete theme swap and needs a responsive menu.

This plugin helps solve that problem for you in a simple way to allow some extension to the life of the theme while preparing a budget to replace the theme properly. Check it out it pretty decent.

If you use tools like Hootsuite or Buffer scheduled Tweets lets you compile and schedule a series of tweets and their respective links, images and hash tags. Once you set up the plugin with your Twitter credentials, you are able to use it right out of the box to create your own Twitter publishing machine. Very easy to setup and use. A great solution for those that use Twitter frequently. The difference between this plugin and those that tweet out your latest posts is that this plugin is completely post independent. It is a tweet scheduler that runs fully independent of any content.

This is a very unique plugin that I just had to check out on behalf of a client project. It gives you the opportunity to import an Excel file directly into WordPress. You insert the file in via shortcode after you set it up in the Excel Tables tab within the admin screen. It not only imports and displays the excel file very nicely, but it allows editing of the file as well. A great solution for those that want to use Excel tables directly in WordPress without having to convert them to ugly HTML tables.
