WP Team Showcase and Slider Pro

https://www.wponlinesupport.com/wp-plugin/wp-team-showcase-slider/

The Lowdown:
This is the Team showcase plugin I opted for after the failed one from the last show that i talked about. This plugin is a premium plugin but is well worth the money. The setup was easy and its display choices were excellent and made installing it a breeze.

Free Shipping Notice adds a message in your cart and checkout about the amount remaining until a customer is eligible for free shipping. In the US, you see this at Amazon PrimeNow, Walmart and other retailers that offer frees shipping when a certain dollar amount criteria is met.

Features:
* Individualized – updates based on each customer’s cart total to show remaining amount to spend
* Customization – customize colors, free shipping minimum, and applicable countries in the settings tab
* Geolocation – the plugin will detect a customer’s country to see if free shipping applies there (based on settings)
* Mobile-friendly – compatible with mobile devices

WD Facebook Feed

https://web-dorado.com/products/wordpress-facebook-feed-plugin.html

The Lowdown:
This plugin was what I chose to create a Facebook feed of albums from a clients Facebook page. Initially it started out to be great setup seemed to be very easy and it was functioning well. The next day however it all fell apart. It would no longer display the images just the album titles. After following the info on how to create my own Facebook app it still would not work so I contacted the support. I even filled them in on everything I had done. They sent back to me to do those things again I did. Still no luck lots of errors. They updated the plugin a week later and new instructions for setup. Followed them to the “T” still no luck after 2 weeks of messing with it I abandoned it.

WP Nearby Places lets you easily create Google maps for your website with your specified location at its center. Your site visitors will have the ability to quickly search what's around your specified location like no other mapping plugin, using the power of Google maps. WP Nearby Places also uniquely breaks down neighborhood locations by categories, such as “Restaurants”, “Parks”, “Police” and, depending which version you purchase, provides the locations’ name, address, URL, website address, phone number and distance (in miles or kilometers) from the central location. There are 3 versions available: Basic (which is free and available through WordPress.org), PRO and Premium (which is offered here). For details about ALL our licensed versions that are available, including our exciting Add-ons, go to https://members.wpnearbyplaces.com/shop.

SHOW-OFF YOUR NEIGHBORS BY CATEGORIES

Featured Neighbors – The most exciting feature is the ability to feature neighbors on your website and in your maps of nearby places. There are places in any neighborhood where they are the “main event”, the main attraction of why someone would travel there to that neighborhood. For instance, a Starbucks nearby is the main attraction for a lot of neighborhoods. A winery, a park, a famous restaurant…

This plugin allows you to load a different theme for specific pages, both in a permanent way and just for debugging.
You will find a section for each single page and post in the meta boxes section, where you can select the theme that you want to activate. Checking on the related checkbox you can decide if you want that all visitors see that theme or only you.
The actual version supports only the front-end, so you will not be able to load another theme for specific pages in the back-end.
