Listener Feedback / Audio Clips

Special guest appearance by Laura


Hi John and Marcus,I am a frequent listener of your podcast and enjoy it very much. Unfortunately it has been technically impossible to give a review in iTunes.
My question is the flowing. I am looking for a solution to bring demand and supply together. In the frontend the user fills in a request form for a specific technical part. Registered suppliers will get access to this request and are able to start interacting with the requester. Preferably the suppliers will see how many other suppliers have seen or reacted to the request, but will not see who has reacted. Also, the financial settling will be done outside of the website.
I have been thinking in the line of membership sites, e-commerce solutions and even combining WordPress, IFTTT and Asana, but have yet been unable to find a fitting and user friendly solution.
Do you have any idea for a plugin?Thanks very much, keep up the excellent work.Dave van Horik

The Lowdown:

This plugin allows you to use a full image background for your site and is is pretty simple to use just install activate then goto apperance>> background and upload your image. You can ignore all other settings as it sets the image to full background and does a pretty nice job of it.

Rating 4 Dragons

This is an SEO plugin that may help you along your way. This may be a great plugin to go back and check on items already posted. Once you install and activate it does a scann and looks for errors then lists them up You click the list and it helps walk you though the process of correcting SEO problems on your website.

The Lowdown:

While this plugin is a great idea and works pretty nice it is not what I was looking for. It does a great job of placing a message at the top of your content letting people know the approx time it will take to read your content. What I think would improve it is something I saw on a site the other day that was a coloured bar that filled as I scrolled down the page. all in all this is good just a few improvements would make it great.

Before deleting the posts
This plugin backs up before deleting posts. When you click “Delete Permanently” WordPress will create an XML file to save to your server computer.

Rating: 5 out of 5

WP Voice Recorder
WP Voice Recorder can help us to record the posts and play them in the front end. It allows us to save the recorded audios into a dropbox account instead of saving it to the server files as it eats up memory. It adds a settings page to “Dashboard”->”Settings”->”WP Voice Recorder Settings” where you can add your Dropbox account access token.

Rating: 5 out of 5

Web App
This plugins helps you insert the necessary meta content to make your website save to the home screen of your iOS Devices as a Web App.
