Listener Feedback / Audio Clips

Robert has a question about creating sound clips as song previews. Unfortunately there is nothing in WordPress that can edit audio yet. You’ll have to create your own preview clips.

Message & Question from Joe

Hey guys,

I really enjoy your podcast. You've made my job much easier with your plug-in reviews. Currently, I'm working on a site where people can download images for free. There will most likely be hundreds of images when the site is complete. I'd like to add keywords to my images to make it easy for people to find them and download them. I've searched everywhere and I can't seem to find a plug-in that will search images by keyword. Or a simple gallery plug-in for easy search and download capabilities without all of the extra frills. This would seem to be a common need. Do you know of any? Thanks!

Joe

 

 

Question from Steve

Hi John and Marcus,

Thanks for doing another great podcast last week.

Do you know if there is a plugin that can display a digital clock via a shortcode that would update dynamically? I was wanting this for myself and a new friend I am helping out.

Sure there are dozens but one of the cooler ones is CoolClock http://wordpress.org/plugins/coolclock/

Smart Maintenance Mode

http://wordpress.org/plugins/smart-maintenance-mode/

The lowdown:

This is a nice simple maintenance mode plugin that has some great configurations. You can limit access by user role, access by IP or even an IP range, you can choose the preset page which is very simple or you can add you own custom information all in all a pretty good maintenance plugin.

SharePrints Gallery

http://freakplugins.com/shareprints/

While this is a pretty great gallery plugin the biggest flaw I found in ti was the lack of ability to add images in bulk, you have to select them on at a time. The install and setup is easy enough and choosing to display the gallery a breeze just create your galleries and then insert into posts/pages via the quick button. Then choose your layout This ia a pretty good plugins for the price of $39.

Orbital Feed Reader

http://wordpress.org/plugins/orbital-feed-reader/

The Lowdown:

This is a great feed reader especially if you are doing research for a post or if you are like many people out there who write additional articles based on what they read. This make it easy to get a pull quote from an article and drop it right into a post. While the layout and functionality is a little raw in its appearance it seems to work very well and to give it a good go I added it to my secret blog site as a place to test some ranting on article and stories. And it seems to work quite well..

Rating 4 Dragons.

 

 

*WordPress Plugin Reviews From Marcus Couch**

Better Admin Pointers

Download Better Admin Pointers

Better Admin Pointers Overview:

This plugin allows creation and placement of Admin Pointers (those little blue help boxes) on any page or post, including custom post types. It creates a custom post type called Pointers to store information. You need to add the following info to make it work:

Title – the part in the blue title bar

Main content area

Pointer id – A unique id so that it can be tracked in the WP DB as dismissed

Screen – What page/screen it should appear on

Target – CSS id or class we want the pointer to attach to on the screen above

Position Edge – top, bottom, left, or right

Position Align – top, bottom, left, right, or middle

Overall this is a really great plugin for creating small areas of help within your WordPress installation. Great customization features that allow you to get into very finite detail.

Editor Color on Word Count

Download Editor Color on Word Count

Editor Color on Word Count Overview:

Google or other search engines love longer articles because of in-depth keywords and detailed analysis (if required). Editor Color on Word Count plugin helps you in achieving this goal as it automatically changes the color of the content editor based on number if words written yet for that article. For example, if you have written 90 words so far, the editor color would be light red and when you cross the 100 words limit, it changes to yellow. After 300 words, it automatically changes to green which means now you have crossed your set goal and keep writing.
