Listener Feedback / Audio Clips

(FILED UNDER 182 Audio) Ryan has a question about post flipping on his membership site. This is not really a plugin function you are looking for, but a way to restrict what someone can see based on their user criteria. Marcus just did a similar project, and will talk about what he did to accomplish the same thing.

The lowdown:

Well I had come across this as an oppurtunity to be able to create tips for uses in assorted areas of the site for when you turn it over to a cliient. But alas this one is not prime time ready yet. seems it has way too many errors to be ready to roll. I even tried it on a couple differnt host providers to insure it wasn't just a server issue but still it created errors.. Will come back to it at another time.

Share Cluster

http://wordpress.org/plugins/share-cluster/

The Lowdown:

Ok well this plugin has lots of potential if you run a network of sites, While I was a bit confused at first on how it operates. I felt the instructions could have been a bit cleared in that since it does create a custom posts type i though that was additional content. I was under the impression from first read though that you install this on a at least 2 sites and now you can easily share snippets of content across them. What it does is only seems to share the custom post type content along with any ads assigned to that content. If you have a network of sites this has some great potential for you to use one master and spread information across the network.

Paid Memberships Pro

http://wordpress.org/plugins/paid-memberships-pro/

I just built a new project for a long standing client that required different layers of post/page protection depending on what user you logged in as. John suggested this plugin to me, and it was the PERFECT solution to what I was looking for. Though I was not specifically creating a member site, this allowed me to create a back-end customer portal that was protected from the view of the competition's prying eyes.

Shortcodes Everywhere

http://wordpress.org/plugins/shortcodes-everywhere/

Edit your site from front-end anywhere, and anything you want.Replace the current markup with the one you need.  Shortcodes Everywhere is a plugin which allows you to edit your site from the front-end, at any part you want. It worked especially well with Paid Memberships pro, which uses shortcodes to designate who sees what. This plugin combo enabled me to add membership level filters via shortcode in the sidebar and even hot-swap the site logos based upon who you are logged in as.Rating 5 out of 5

 

All in One Buttons

http://wordpress.org/plugins/all-in-one-buttons/

You could spend countless hours in Photoshop trying to create the perfect button, or create the perfect button with All In One Buttons in seconds All In One Buttons will allow you to customize the alignment, size, color, icon, animation and more. It'll also save your buttons as WordPress shortcodes for rapid deployment on your website(s). I especially like the added icon feature that allows you to add a nice personal touch to the buttons. Overall, this is the fastest way I know of to create graphically pleasing buttons in a rapid-fire manner.

    John, I appreciate all the plugin tips, and they certainly can enhance the functionality of a WP site. However, I frequently see warnings about "running too many plugins" or that "more plugins means more headaches." Is there an upper limit to the plugin one should install, and, if so, what is it?

      Hi Mike,
      As far as I can tell there is no upper limit the biggest problem is the plugins installed. Did you install plugins that conflict or are poorly coded. Those are actually the only limits.
