WP Athletics 1.0.0



The Lowdown:


This is a stats plugin that you can use to track athlete stats its default setting are all for runners. but looks like you could do anything you like for stats creation and tracking. seems to be a interesting way to track a team or your own persona stuff.


Very nicely designed and seem to work well


Rating 4 Dragons

 

Book a Place 0.1.0


  • Version: 0.1.0

  • Author: ArtkanMedia

  • Last Updated: 2 weeks ago

  • Requires WordPress Version: 3.5.2 or higher

  • Compatible up to: 3.7.1

  • Downloaded: 68 times

  • WordPress.org Plugin Page »


The Lowdown:


This is a simple booking plugin that will allow you to set available booking on thing such as rooms. You can only set booking available in blocks and if they book it they get the whole block. So it would require several setups to cover a few months from what I can tell it looks to be a lot of work.

Pinterest for WordPress 0.3



The Lowdown:


A simple way to add pinterest boards to sidebars on your site. It is straightforward just add plugin turn on and add the urls to your boards.

Social Contact Display


Requires: 3.0.1 or higher


Compatible up to: 3.7.1


Last Updated: 2013-11-18


Downloads: 954


Social Contact Display offers a great way to present links to all of your social homes online. I’ve been looking for a way to spruce up my personal site with a more prominent representation of my social networking locations. This widget-based plugin provides many different display options in both horizontal and vertical axis. The item of most interest about this plugin is that there are many different icon sets provided directly within the plugin. There are other plugins out there that offer one or two graphic options, but this is the most comprehensive that I’ve seen to date. I’ve included a collage of some of the different variants that this plugin has regarding design options. Keep in mind that I did zero CSS modifications to the plugin in the screen captures. It also allows you to add traditional contact info within the widget, such as business name, address, phone, email, etc. It’s a great solution to get a quick social link section installed on the sidebar, the header area or both combined.

Custom Users Order


Requires: 3.0.1 or higher


Compatible up to: 3.7.1


Last Updated: 2013-11-18


Downloads: 39


Custom Users Order is a handy plugin that boasts a drag-and-drop interface within the user administration page. Simply drag the users in the order you would like them to appear in, click the update button and you’re done! This could be used to move frequent users to the top of a long list for faster access. Use caution with this one if your other users also have access to the drag and drop features on the back end! You may turn it into an unexpected popularity contest. Just like the “Favorites” on your phone’s contact list, the order that users appear on your site could ignite controversy!

Pronamic Google Conversion


Requires: 3.0 or higher


Compatible up to: 3.6.1


Last Updated: 2013-11-18


Downloads: 25


This plugin adds an shortcode to easily integrate an Google Conversion code. About 80% of WordPress users have Analytics installed, but few ever use it to capacity. Items like Conversion Tracking are often left by the wayside because of what seems to be a difficult process in implementing a conversion code from Google. This plugin makes the process a bit easier by implementing a shortcode to be used as the end-goal tracker.

  1. Hi There,
    I follow your wordpress podcasts regularly. Wondering if you could create a simple list of plugins reviewed for each episode so that I won’t need to read through a lot of other information to find them?
    Thanks for your helpful podcasts!
