Protect Login Page

This is a simple plugin that protects access to your WordPress website’s login page by intercepting the page request and requiring that a PIN number, up to 8 digits, be present in the URL. Without the proper PIN, no login form is displayed, just a simple message. This plugin will make it harder for hackers to get into your website.
Once activated, you will access your login page like this…
http://yourwebsite.com/wp-login.php?PIN=

IMPORTANT – DO NOT use this plugin if you require login access other than the main WordPress login page, such as the WordPress mobile app. This was the dealbreaker for my personal site.

SpeedGuard

The Lowdown:
It’s a free tool for the webmaster that gives the clear answer to the simple question: Is it my website slow speed that is holding me back from getting more visitors from Google?
It measures the load times of the important pages of the website and let you know if your website speed needs to be improved.
I wanted an easy-to-use tool to warn me in case my website load time may harm its search rankings. I wanted native WordPress solution, with all information available from dashboard, simple but still informative, a guard who will do the monitoring everyday and ping me in case something goes wrong. I have not found the one, that’s why I’ve built my SpeedGuard plugin.
I’ll be happy to know that it is useful for other webmasters as well, get any hints, advice, ideas to make it better.
It uses Webpagetest to run the test and you will need to get an API key a pretty easy task.

WP Nearby Places lets you easily create Google maps for your website with your specified location at its center. Your site visitors will have the ability to quickly search what’s around your specified location like no other mapping plugin, using the power of Google maps. WP Nearby Places also uniquely breaks down neighborhood locations by categories, such as “Restaurants”, “Parks”, “Police” and, depending which version you purchase, provides the locations’ name, address, URL, website address, phone number and distance (in miles or kilometers) from the central location. There are 3 versions available: Basic (which is free and available through WordPress.org), PRO and Premium (which is offered here). For details about ALL our licensed versions that are available, including our exciting Add-ons, go to https://members.wpnearbyplaces.com/shop.

SHOW-OFF YOUR NEIGHBORS BY CATEGORIES

Featured Neighbors – The most exciting feature is the ability to feature neighbors on your website and in your maps of nearby places. There are places in any neighborhood where they are the “main event”, the main attraction of why someone would travel there to that neighborhood. For instance, a Starbucks nearby is the main attraction for a lot of neighborhoods. A winery, a park, a famous restaurant…
