[plugin_name src=”pinterest-master”] Overview:
Needs premium version to be of any use or value it seem I hit an epic fail or maybe I was just not smart enough to get it working. Every widget I tried out ended in blank setting it may work fine if you buy the premium addons but I am always sceptical if the free version does not do at least something then I always pass on it.

[plugin_name src=”search-in-place”] Overview:
I tested out the light version of found it to be of great use and purchased the premium version so I could I could access the custom posts types and limit searching by that criteria as I was doing some work on an older site with wp ecommerce which does not always have a great search function as woocommerce. With some tweaking I was able to create a unique search function tailored for this site. I would say if you want some great interactivity for your search check out this plugin.

Download [plugin_name src=”domain-name-autoswitch”]
[plugin_name src=”domain-name-autoswitch”] Overview:
Well I was hoping this would be an easy to use plugin with multiple domains on a site but it seems to require some configuration direct in the code. It requires editing the plugin config file and adding an additional plugin to manage the fields while this plugin work pretty well it does require some work to configure it up. It does seem to work very well for focusing a specific domain to a post or a category and after adding the additional plugin for advanced field management you get a block on your post edit page to specify a domain to use for the post. It does not seem at this time to work with pages.

Download [plugin_name src=”comment-form-shortcode”]
[plugin_name src=”comment-form-shortcode”] Overview:
This plugin is quite unique in that it allows you to place a shortcode to embed your contact form within the post, or anywhere else that shortcodes are accepted, such as a widget area on the sidebar. I like this because it allows you to shut off comments altogether and use them only on specific pages where comments are warranted.

[plugin_name src=”brilliant-easy-exclude-posts”] Overview:
This plugin allows you to create an “unlisted” post or page rather than private or password protected. Stock WP functionality requires you to be logged in to view a private post. “BEEP” gives you the option to provide someone a link to a page that only a person with the link can see.

Download [plugin_name src=”wp-inject”]
[plugin_name src=”wp-inject”] Overview:
This plugin got my attention mostly because of it's author, Thomas Hoefter who also created WPRobot and CMS Commander. This plugin uses creative commons image searches right in the content editor. It allows you to search Flickr's monster database for photos related to any topic. The nice thing is that it presents you the option to insert the images in your post or as a featured images. All with just a few clicks. To protect the image creator, this also automatically provides image attribution next to the image, giveing credit where it's due. I've even found it able to create entire galleries at once. Images get saved to your WordPress domain and added to your Media Library. Future plans include the ability to insert other things like Youtube videos, Amazon product ads and more. One to watch with a close eye!
