Thanks for taking the Tailor page builder for a test drive!

I’m glad to hear you liked it though it’s a shame it didn’t work with the premium theme you tried (this was no doubt a conflict with whatever builder you were using; I should add that to a disclaimer somewhere :D). I just wanted to clarify that it is in fact possible to edit posts as well: you just need to enable them from within the plugin settings (Settings > Tailor). Does that afford another half dragon?
Thanks again for a positive review and keep up the great work!

Registered Users Only

The Lowdown:
Do you need to lock down your site to be registered users only and if anyone else hit it they only can get to the registration/login page? This is a plugin for you in its simple form just check and box and your off to the races. I inherited this plugin with a client that runs an intranet and it was modified and I have had to adjust it further so you can allow the site to open for for an IP range or a specific IP. When used with Gravity forms and the other plugins mentioned in this show you can even have it so they can register only though a specific email address and more.
Rating 4 Dragons

Staff Directory WPAZ
WP Plugins A to Z first plugin

Contact John if you want a copy
The Lowdown:
This is the first of many plugins to come from WordPress Plugins A to z. This one is a fork of the Staff directory plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/staff-directory/ aside from the change Adam Tootle has made in is plugin for his recent version which we won't be using we have add more functionality to the plugin. Which allows the creation of a staff list that you edit in the back end and can display in the front end via short code. We have added ajax sorting for the front end as well as the back. the ability to export the csv file and to import the csv file. We have cleaned up the editor and created an ajax search function.
All in all it is pretty great plugin now we are still doing some cleanup of the interface and more will come over time for the plugin but if you need a simple staff directory check this out.
Of course since it is from WP Plugins A to Z it gets a 5 Dragon rating (kidding) it is rated at a 4
Rating 4 Dragons
There is another Plugin in the dev cue right now that help you create an intranet and lock your site down to registered users.

WP Security Audit Log

The Lowdown:
This plugin gives great tracking of everything on your site, from user sign ins to whatever changes they make. It is a great tool for helping you know what is going on and if something goes wrong you will have an idea where to look for the issue. It racks what plugins are installed removed and activated. You can expand it abilities with the pro addons such a email notifications and user monitor and more

Disable Autocomplete

With so many autocomplete scripts available (within Chrome, Firefox, LastPass, etc) there are a lot of different ways that sensitive data could get saved within your browser. This plugin prevents items from being saved in your saved passwords or LastPass.
Rating: 5 out of 5

WP API Yoast SEO

Returns Yoast post or page metadata in a normal post or page request. Stores the metadata in the yoast_meta field of the returned data. I wanted to bring this plugin to light not because I think a ton of people will be using it, but to highlight and illustrate the point that these kinds of plugin interactions with the API are coming faster than you think.

My specialty is helping people help themselves. I get their WordPress website up and running after a catastrophe such as being hacked or a plugin malfunction. My focus is on fixing the problem rather than scrapping the site and rebuilding it from the bottom up. Although this may be tempting to do, the costs associated with this are much more than you may think. The loss of time spent on the site, posts, data and images that may have been forgotten or no longer accessible. With a bit of time I can get your site cleaned up, functioning, and re-establish its presence on the web.
John
