With that let's dive right into the meat and potatoes.
Today I am reviewing four great plugins.


Gravity Forms Constant Contact


The Lowdown:
If you use Constant contact for managing your email lists and C<S this is a great plugin that allows you to connect Gravity Forms to Constant Contact. This allows you to capture the emails and other info off your forms and have it inserted into your Constant Contact lists, it collects and connects all types of field including custom one. It also has a confirmation function you can add to your site to ensure the entry was added to Constant contact.

Constant Contact Forms


The Lowdown:
This is a Contact form plugin that while made to use with Constant Contact. It can also be used without a Constant contact account. While it looks like you can create most any type of form, it seems to be more focused on creating email signup forms that send the info into Constant contact. You may want to use the previously talked about plugin for more extensive forms.

Freemium Plugin

Cooked – Recipe Plugin


The Lowdown:
This is a recipe plugin that is a bit different than others that I have looked at in the past. The free version has most of what you will need to create a very good looking recipe website or just to display the occasional recipe in your blog.
Here’s what you get out of the box:

  • Drag & drop ingredients and directions.
  • SEO Optimized – Google Structured Data and Schema.org support.
  • Beautiful grid-based masonry recipe lists.
  • Prep & Cooking Times
  • Photo Galleries
  • Nutrition Facts
  • Difficulty Levels
  • Powerful recipe search with a text search, categories & sorting options.
  • Author template to list recipes by a single author.
  • Cooking times with clickable, interactive timers.
  • Very developer-friendly with loads of hooks & filters.
  • Servings switcher to adjust ingredient amounts.

Itunes Review

United States
2 star
Too many interviews Used to love the show. Went back and listened to all episodes from beginning. Was very helpful and insightful. New format not as helpful. Old show – 5 star. Now – 2 star, at best. Not going to listen any more. There are other shows more interesting now.
