 Float Right Advertisement 1.0.0

The Lowdown:

I tested this plugin because I have had a couple of question the past week for advertising plugins. And I found this plugin work pretty nice.. it is simple and straightforward just install activate and and then add your code for the ad and it appears in the right side floating out from the side.. It can then be hidden if it gets in the way and floats quite nicely. I used a java code for my ads since I have my own ad server. I would be nice to see a couple options like placement and timer but all in all pretty good. Side note I did notice on a couple super custom themes it did not work.. Probably a theme issue.

Infinite-Scroll 2.6.2

  • Version: 2.6.2

  • Author: Beaver6813, dirkhaim, Paul Irish, benbalter, Glenn Nelson

  • Last Updated: 195 days ago

  • Requires WordPress Version: 3.2 or higher

  • Compatible up to: 3.5.2

  • Downloaded: 136,635 times

  • WordPress.org Plugin Page »

The Lowdown:

Looking to solve that problem of having to click from page to page? This has the potential to be a great plugin for what you want to do and have the infinite scroll, there is on gotcha though you will need to go though your particular theme and get the selector setting for the CSS to make it work just a minor issue though if you know css.. All in all this worked pretty good so check it out.

Rating 3 Dragons.

 

Functionality 1.0.1

The Lowdown;

This one is for everyone looking for a simpler way to keep their functions intact when they change themes. Simply add this plugin then instead of adding your ne functions to the theme function file add them here and whenever you change themes you will always have those custom functions. This a great especially if you're like me and use a particular theme framework like Genesis then this can save you some time.

Mozscape

Requires: 3.3 or higher

Compatible up to: 3.5.2

Last Updated: 2013-7-17

Downloads: 107

Mozscape is a recent release from the folks over at Moz (Formerly known as SEOMoz) that allows you to view analytical data from MozScape about the post you are currently editing. Data included in the analysis includes Moz Rank, MozTrust, page authority ranking, Total links (both internal and external) and anchor text metrics. This provides a great opportunity to analyze and re-optimize existing content on your site that you depend on for a constant flow of traffic. I’ve had great experiences using Moz in the past for analysis of client sites. It will be great to incorporate some of the same functionality directly into the WordPress content editor. Give it a shot if you have the least bit of curiosity as to how your writing style coördinates with what should be optimized in your content. You may be surprised to learn that with just a few minor edits and tweaks, you can get a page to rank quickly and keep it there. This is a free usage plugin, but it will require registration to Moz for an API key.

CommentCaVa

Requires: 3.0 or higher

Compatible up to: 3.5.2

Last Updated: 2013-7-17

Downloads: 30

CommentCaVa sets a virtual timer on your posts before a reader is allowed to make a comment. The concept is unique in that it forces the viewer to actually read the content first before they can comment. I’m not sure of the anti-spam implications of this plugin, but it may stop the flow on that end as well. It works within the native WordPress commenting system by installing a small JavaScript containing the timer elements. This is a new plugin with a developer that’s hungry to grow the functionality of the plugin, so please join WortWart in making this plugin something that we can all use to extend on-page time of our readership.

Suggest Review

Requires: 3.5.2 or higher

Compatible up to: 3.5.2

Last Updated: 2013-7-22

Downloads: 40

Suggest Review encourages users of the site to raise awareness of suspect or inaccurate content that may already be published to the site. It provides the viewer the opportunity to “flag” content and write a note to the administrator explaining the nature of their alert. I like the nature of the “suggestion” as it is done as a privately submitted form rather than out in public full view. The simple fact that this is a constructive mechanism for content revision, as opposed to the “comment trolls” is a welcome relief. There are safeguards in place that can restrict who sees or can submit to the “suggest review” button and functions. You can limit it to registered users so that the public or spammers are not pounding the system with false posts.
