The Lowdown;
When your throwing together your Woocommerce site some theme will not have a very clear shopping cart. What this plugin does is add a floating shopping cart to the lower right of the page. When clicked on it opens a sidebar with the contents of the cart making it easy for your visitors to always bet to the cart after adding and then doing something else.

The Lowdown:
I know I may have reviewed this plugin before but it has been awhile. The great thing about this plugin is when you are upgrading a website and it has a couple menus that are pretty intensive and you want to make changes but not sure it they will be permanent. This plugin let you do one simple thing and that is duplicate the entire menus and in case you only need to remove a couple things this make the job of rebuilding menus an breeze.

This is a simple, yet clunky plugin that presents you with the exact names and sizes for the plugins and themes that use thumbnails. I can't tell you how many times that I've had to dig into demo content to try and figure out what the actual thumb and featured sizes are. I'm sick of my thumbnails getting cut off due to improper sizing and proportions. Now with this plugin, I no longer have to worry about it.
