Revisiting

Curation Suite

https://curationsuite.com/

The Lowdown:
This plugin used to be one of my favourite plugins, it was a great tool for bringing in news into your website. I had been using it for a couple years. originally I had bought a license that was grandfathered into the system when they upped their prices. I have several plugins like that..

Now the plugin functioned great for a while but about 6 months ago I started having some issues so I contacted support and since they had always been great in the past i expected the same. Well not so much this time. Since it was a low priority I actually forgot I had put in a support ticket and when I had time to revisit the issue I realized it had been 3 months since I put in the ticket.. I contacted them again nothing after a few days. So I tried to contact them on Facebook and twitter. Still no luck. After a few days of multiple attempts to get a hold of their support I surrendered and well I have to pull what was once a 5 star rating and plummet them down to a 2.

The plugin no longer functions correctly I cannot install it on a new site and I cannot reach support and I tried..

Interactive US Map (Premium)

https://www.wpmapplugins.com/interactive-us-map-wordpress-plugin.html

The interactive US map WordPress plugin gives you an easy way to install and customize a professional looking interactive US map with 50 clickable states plus DC, then insert the shortcode in any page or post to display the map on your website. It's $29 at Code Canyon. I had a website project that needed this, and the plugin went above and beyond. It looks amazing and functions well at any resolution. Watch the video on how it works at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGpPV1YKsTo They also have world maps, various other country maps and even individual state maps with the clickable counties.

Main Features

  • One-time purchase, no annual or subscription fees.
  • Visual editor – Coding knowledge is NOT required.
  • Well organized interface, easy to use admin panel.
  • Use the shortcode as many times as you want in different pages to display the same map.
  • Create multiple maps and use them in different pages – up to 3 different maps.
  • Responsive and fully resizable.
  • Works perfectly on desktops along with smartphones.
  • SEO friendly > Small file size > Fast loading.

Does your site have a build up of content that is still relevant just a bit old? Well this plugin helps you get that content back ut into the wild for people to see and view. It let you cue up your posts to be scheduled and posts to Twitter and Facebook although with recent changes to Facebook somethings may not work as expected until the workarounds are sorted out. All in all a pretty great plugin.

Countdown WooCommerce Sale

This is a simple timer add-on to WooCommerce that counts down the time remaining in a sale. Once the timer reaches zero, the sale ends and the price is automatically adjusted to full price. This is actually something really cool that I was inspired to research based on the recent Amazon Prime Day. It does the exact same functionality. For retailers or developers, this also allows you the chance to run the “sale of the day” and switch the timer to multiple products. Discount amount, discount rate, date of sale finish can be displayed in the timer.

The Lowdown:
Do you need to adjust user roles on your site? Do you want an easy way to allow things such as specific widgets to show up only for certain user roles? This plugin is one you will want to investigate then. You can add new roles or adjust setting for other roles except the admin role.

This is a great plugin for limiting the access to specific areas of a site or in the case of a membership site with multiple roles and each seeing different things you can limit access to specific widgets per role and more check this plugin out.

Print Flyers Lite

A useful addition for any WooCommerce-powered online store, Print Flyers Lite makes it easy for customers to print product literature straight from the product page via a button. A variety of options are available via the WordPress dashboard settings to control the appearance of the printed page. For example, you can change the size and position of the featured image, and you can choose from a selection of fonts. You can choose to show SKU or not; or stock status or not, etc. I tried it and the output was not as perfect as a pre-designed PDF, but it was a heck of a lot better than the user just printing the web page verbatim.
