The Lowdown: Recently I had need again to clean up a database on a site. This plugin makes the job of doing a search and replace an easy task. It will replace in numerous tables or you can just target a single table. It is great for hunting down those elusive url changes that need to be made when you migrate a website to a new domain of if you’re doing the https conversion on your site. Just be sure and make a database backup before you start.

The Lowdown: This is a plugin that will allow you to do A/B split testing on your content easily if you are using Visual Composer. With three purchase levels you can go for the free version which allows you to create testing items using buttons, headings and images. Buy it on Code Canyon and get the added features of text testing, tracking and a stats dashboard, or from their site where you get multi-column and row testing as well as mobile testing. If you are in need of A/B testing and using Visual Composer this looks to be a useful plugin for you.

By default, adding an image to the WordPress media library requires you to import or upload the image to the WordPress site, which means there must be a copy of the image file stored in the site. This plugin enables you to add an image stored in an external site to the media library by just adding a URL linking to the remote image address. In this way you can host the images in a dedicated server other than the WordPress site, and still be able to show them by various gallery plugins which only take images from the media library.
The plugin provides buttons and inputs in the ‘Media’ -> ‘Add New’ page, the media upload panel and a dedicated Add External Media without Import submenu page. Therefore you can either add an external media before (or after) editing any post or page, or in the process of editing a post or page without interrupting the editing process.

This plugin will add a button to your post/page editor which can be used to generate a link preview for the given URL. The link preview consists of a title, description and image which will result in a similar look as sharing a link on Facebook.
