**WordPress Plugins Reviewed by John**


eCommerce Dashboard 1.0.4

The Lowdown:

This plugin is for WooCommerce and is a quick way to see your sales stats while it is limited and only shows daily, weekly and monthly sales totals it does not do much else. It is accessible from outside after you set a password all in all a nice quick way to check your sales.

Rating 3 Dragons



SEO Advicer by ScorpionGodLair.com 1.4.1

The Lowdown:

Well this plugin is simply full of tips that appear in the top of your admin area every time you hit a page in the admin. And while they are good tips they are just random tips and not a check to see what your site might need.

Rating 2 Dragons


Woocommerce Email Report 1.1

The Lowdown:

This is a nice add on if you have woocommerce to get daily reports on your sales. It is simple and straightforward in that you just add a email and a time frequency and every day you get a report.

A plugin to add widget listing categories, extending the default WordPress category widget. Are you frustrated by the lack of customization options in default Category widget in WordPress? Then this plugin is for you. Works similarly but with several customization options.

It automatically sense the post type where it is implemented and provide the endless navigation from the same taxonomy/category. You don't need to worry about its order. It automatically manage alphabetical order for next and previous navigation. I tried infinite scroll with success previously, but it stopped working for me shortly after 3.7.1. This one worked fine, even in 3.8.
