The Lowdown:

This one was sent to me by Piotr Szarmach the author.

Looking for a simple way to add a Facebook like to your site. This may be just what you want. It is simple and straightforward, Install quick configure and you get a great popup above or below your page with space for an ad or other info and a box to encourage people to like you on Facebook. You can do a couple thing like minor colour customizations and have it auto disappear and set a cookie to have it show every so many days when someone visits. Plus they even have a link to direct you to create your Facebook like button code.

WP RSS Aggregator 4.1


The Lowdown:

This plugin was suggested by Jean over at http://WPmayor.com

Are you looking for an easy way to integrate RSS feeds into your WordPress web site. This may be what you are looking for. While the free version works great for you this is a pretty nice RSS feed plugin and has several premium plugins to make it more versatile for your uses. Setup is pretty easy but it may take a few after install before your feeds start to show up.

On of the great extras you can purchase is the feed to post addon which allows you to create specific posts from the feeds. All in all a pretty nice RSS feed display plugin.

Rating 4 Dragons.

This is a great new plugin from Zurb that allows you the ability to show before-and-after pictures in your blog, with an interactive slider that allows users to compare them. This is great for before and after shots for businesses, photoshop artists, cosmetic surgeons, makeup artists or whoever can use a before and after shot.

Wordfence Security – Live Traffic Admin Widget


Monitor your site's real-time live traffic from the Main Dashboard page. This is a Wordfence extension and as such it does require Wordfence Security to be installed in order for it to function properly. Embed the Wordfence Live Traffic page into an admin widget alongside a few quickmenu actions. You can quickly enable/disable the Live Traffic scripts right from within the admin widget.

This plugin allows to add a watermark on the images uploaded.

It applies watermark on new images as well as images already uploaded. By deactivating the plugin, the watermark will be removed on all images.

What makes this plugin a really powerful one, is that the watermark is placed on your images through a htaccess and php file. This means your images are actually not modified. You can still download them from your FTP, and they will not have any watermark.

The watermark is only visible if you try to download the images from a web browser

Rating: 4 out of 5 (I want more than JPG!)
