WooThemes Credit Card Issues

This is an alert from John — (if you have purchased anything from WooThemes from the last week of april to 2 week may 2014 check your credit card for fraudulent activity. It seems the only place I used my card in the last 3 months compromised it in some way.

Motopress review

http://getmotopress.com

Premium Plugin

This is a premium plugin that I have given a good run and have discovered that it is very nice. It has the ability to do some significant customizations to a post though their custom editor. While it allow you to add things like sidebars and widgets to an individual post it allow and can help you create specialized maps it does have the usual limitations inherent in web page building.

My guess is while this is a WYSIWYG post creator it harkens back to the days of building a webpage in tables. Where you are limited in how you can place things. each block takes its own space and you cannot lay one block over the other. for example if you enter a long block of text you cannot place an image precisely where you want it unless you break the text into separate blocks. All in all I found this to be a great plug and wanted to give it a 5 but the limitations force me to give it a 4. I was impressed with how it worked and it smoothness but disappointed at the limitations.

WP Legal Pages review

Referred by Shilpa Shah

http://wplegalpages.com/

Premium Plugin

If you are in need of legal pages on your site and may website do need them you can either hire an attorney or search the web for the many free and paid templates out there then start creating your pages or you can get this plugin. It make life easy for your legal pages. Install activate then accept the disclaimer that they might not be precisely what you need as all good lawyer talk is.

Fill in the basic about your website Domain, address, phone number ect. They include the following template mostly ready to go all you may need is a little tweaking to make them yours.

They even have a set of templates for several business types including Niche sites, Adsense, ecommerce, amazon and more. They even have a setting for the EU cookie that is now required in the EU. You can create popups that force visitors to accept certain conditions depending on pages. You create the popup add the short code to specific page and they have to agree before proceeding. All in all this is a pretty great and mostly lazy plugin

You can check their video for more info.

WordPress Plugin Reviews From Marcus Couch

Scheduled Post Guardian

Download Scheduled Post Guardian

Scheduled Post Guardian Overview:

Some WordPress sites have problems with scheduled posts, where they don’t get published at the right time. Instead they appear as “missed schedule”. This plugin monitors scheduled posts, and makes sure that doesn’t happen. I can’t tell you how many times I have set something to schedule a post in the future and it just never leaves the launch pad. Thankfully, with this plugin I’ll never have to worry about that again.

Nelio External Featured Image

Download Nelio External Featured Image

Nelio External Featured Image Overview:

Use external images from anywhere as the featured image of your pages and posts. Are you using an external service for storing your images? Then you’d probably like to use those images as featured images for your pages and posts. This plugin lets you do this easily! This is great if you want to set up something fast for demo purposes, or to test content flow. I would NOT use an external featured image all the time, as it will slow your server resources down and make your site a bit slower.
