The Lowdown:
This is a replacement for Quick Page/Post Redirect Plugin at https://wordpress.org/plugins/quick-pagepost-redirect-plugin/. If you have had sites up for a while you will start finding that some of your plugins that you used 3 or 4 years ago are no longer up[dated and have been abandoned for a while.

This plugin replaces the older Quick Page and posts redirects it is a fork of the abandoned plugin and has has the bugs fixed and is currently up to date. The plugin make the job of creating 301 redirects a breeze and one good thing is when switching from the old one all your data is still in place.

Custom Author Profiles simplifies the process of adding custom information to a user or author account. The plugin allows you to quickly add custom fields to a user edit page without complicated configuration. The new fields are automatically included in the user edit page once they are created and are easily inserted into WordPress template files.

The Lowdown:
This is a replacement for Plugin Notes https://wordpress.org/plugins/plugin-notes/ another plugin to replace a useful plugin. This one replaces the plugin I used to use for creating notes for the plugins list. Making a note for each plugin so that when you came back to a site you know why it is there. Also a good way to let your clients know why a plugin exists.

Conversion Tracking for WooCommerce

This solves a HUGE gap within WordPress and WooCommerce. The plugin allows you to use your own JavaScript or a tag management solution to integrate your analytics tracking. The idea is that the page outputs the variables you need, sanitized and ready to consume in JavaScript, and you simply pass them along to the analytics packages.
This plugin does not do anything except publish the values you need as JavaScript variables; to make it useful you need to incorporate it into an analytics package and refer to the variables.

The possible values for type are:
* cart
* checkout
* order-confirmation

The types cart and checkout are nearly identical and place the majority of the values in the cart member. order-confirmation is similar, but places the majority of the values in the order member.

This is a great plugin to make it easy for your visitors to tweet out your content with a prepared tweet all they have to do is make a couple clicks and its off. The basic plugin is pretty good but you can get the premium add-on and enhance it.

Another great plugin idea that I really like. This plugin allows users to see the admin settings page. Just Seeing, No edit allowed These users will have all the privilege of editors along with that they will have the ability to see the admin settings.
