The Events Calendar

The Lowdown:

Do you need an events plugin then this one will do pretty nicly it is another in the long list of now freemium plugins I had predicted a couple years ago. The free ersion is pretty nice in its display and how it handles the events. It creates pretty nice maps and layout that seem to fit into most themes well. The premium version offers more flexability in the calendar displays including a full map with markers. I did discover that this plugin does have a couple things wanting. Instead like most events calendar plugins this one does not have an individule page for the alendars you can easilty add to and it also seems to have more plugin conflicts that most. All in all though once all is solved it works pretty well.

Premium Plugin

Whishlist Membership

http://member.wishlistproducts.com/

 

This is a premium plugin that i have been using for a client and have discovered that it is not all that great of a membership plugin especially if you use PayPal for payments. I found that setup for the plugin was not a completly easy task and that when using paypal intergration which is the most common payment gateway it requires you to create paypal buttons on your paypal account for each membership level you have. Plugin it does not have an easy way for a zero dollar sample membership. It does help with iniatal page setup to some extent but not as thoughogh as most other membership plugins I have used. I found it difficult to get it fully functioning and easy payment processing. While it does work pretty well I would reccomend a diffent plugin like S2Membership or Paidmembership Pro.

RunKeeper WordPress Activity Feed

The Lowdown:

Are you a runner or an active person using Runkeeper to track your runs? If you would like an easy way to share this information on your personal site this is a great plugin for that. Simple to install and configure and then connect to your Runkeeper account. Everytime you have a completed activity it gets auto uploaded for your.
