Q2W3 Fixed Widget (Sticky Widget) 3.0

The Lowdown:

Well this is another way to add scrolling sidebars or a sticky widget. What you do is install it and set a couple of setting and the look at your widgets and click a box to decide which ones will be sticky I did discover something interesting if there is a super customized widget like the one provided with the weather plugin I reviewed in a recent show then you do not get the option to use this. Although for the ones it works on it is great. You can choose any or all widgets from any spot and it pops them out and makes them scroll down the page.

Rating 5 Dragons



Microdata Manager 1.0.0

The Lowdown:

This plugin is specifically for the Genesis platform will not work with other themes.. Read this article To better understand why you may want to change the Schema, read the following article by one of the leading WordPress SEO experts, Joost de Valk: Schema.org & Genesis 2.0.

This plugin adds a new metadata box to your post page to allow you to customize specific micro data and improve your seo for your site..

Rating 4 Dragons


Simple Copy Post Button 1.0

The Lowdown:

What this plugin does is simply adds a copy button to your posts list and makes the job of duplicating posts, pages or custom posts types such as products easy. It copies the posts as a draft that you can then edit up. This has a great use if you add posts or pages with similar content or standard pricing for different products it might save you a few minutes of work.

Rating 3 Dragons.
