This week I will rant on nothing in particular at all, since it has been such a busy week, not that I am complaining or anything I enjoy busy much better than slow. Also I would like to mention that there may be news on one of my most popular articles that of dealing with the WordPress loading issue. I should have info on that next week I have been testing something I found out about this past week so will let you know i the next podcast.

Hmmm Seafood and Eat itList of Plugins:
This weeks podcast was supposed to be on membership plugins except it became a very busy week for me. Since I had to redo so old research I decide to focus on a single plugin this week after placing a fair amount of time into it.

The plugin this week is Event Espresso.

This is a paid plugin that is not just an events calendar, what I was in need of for a client was a calendar that would list classes and a simple way for people to register online. The other necessity was to be as easy as possible for my clients to use since they are not the web junkie that I am.

After re-checking several plugins I had tested in the past for handling events and after checking with a couple folks for additional referrals I found Event Espresso. This plugin is not only easy to use by the average user but also a great addition to any website wanting to have an online registration system for any event.

It also has some great support from thier forums area, I had a couple of questions I just placed them in the forum and within 24hrs I had an answer, it was great.

I give this plugin a 4 Dragon rating
