AE Connect

Requires: or higher
Compatible up to:
Released:01 January 1970
Last Updated:01 January 1970
(0 star out of 5)

What they say about it:

How can you really learn about your customers so you can create the perfect content for them?

For more and more brands, social login is the answer. Social login can help you understand your ideal customers in full color.

The AE Connect WordPress plugin helps marketers get a robust social login set up on their WordPress websites quickly and easily. Our dashboard allows users to view what their customers are liking, sharing, interacting with and listening to… in real time.

When your customers log onto your website using social login, they give you permission to see some of their activity, so that you can provide them with better offers and tailored content. We like to think of this as a digital handshake between the customer and the brand. That’s what we do at Appreciation Engine (, AE for short: we empower companies like Sony and UMG to better understand their customers and increase fan engagement.

The next plugin I have for you is:

Archived Post Status

Requires:5.9 or higher
Compatible up to:6.5.4
Released:05 January 2015
Last Updated:15 June 2024
(4.9 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
Discovering this plugin was a request from a client wanting to have the ability to place posts not only into draft or trash to save for late to an archive they could use and refer to for older content. It needed to be not published and drafts clutter your publishing area if you have lots of posts/pages and well the trash can be risky at times.

This plugin simply creates a new option for the post state called “archive” and you can use it to sort posts like every other state. A simple yet very effective plugin.

Rating 5 Dragons

ClassicPress Options

Adding a new segment just for Classic Press since the release of Gutenberg ClassicPress has garnered a lot of attention.
