The Lowdown:

If you are a soccer fan (football for the rest of the world) then this may be what you want to add to your site.

Fossura Tag Miner

The Lowdown:

This is a plugins that will help you with tagging your posts. It uses a natural language forumla to create them. The biggest problem I have with it is lack of controls especially with controlling the number of tags created. It seems to create 5 tags but I would like to see controls that allow me to choose the numbers. It does seem to create pretty good tags though and you can se it to create them on draft saving or publishing. If you have it create them on draft you can edit them. Other than that pretty nice.

HTTPS Mixed Content Detector
https://wordpress.org/plugins/https-mixed-content-detector/

The HTTPS Mixed Content Detector plugin attempts to identify sources of mixed content warnings. The plugin will examine content loaded from the site when admins are viewing the site. Any content that violates the policy of loading content that originates from “https:” resources will trigger an error and that resource will be logged. Viewing the log will allow you to examine the site for any warnings and remove them before they cause problems for your website.

Performance Tester
https://wordpress.org/plugins/performance-tester/

Analyze the home page of your WordPress site directly from your backoffice and get a quality and performance report. Though there are many other plugins like this out there, this one has a really clean interface and is quite simple to use. It would make a great report to clients with a screenshot or pdf save.

Idea Factory
https://wordpress.org/plugins/idea-factory/

Idea Factory was born out of necessity, and the frustration of the lack of plugins that did exactly what I wanted it to do. This plugin allows users to submit new ideas from the front-end, and vote on them. Currently it allows a user to vote once per idea, then locks them out. It's also currently limited to logged in users, for now.

AJAX powered front-end submission and voting
Limited to logged in users for now
1 vote allowed per user per idea
Emails the admin of a new submission
Automatic setup or use anywhere with a shortcode
Optionally set a threshold where each idea will be given a status based on total votes and emails the admin
Extensible with hooks and actions on events
More ideas loaded with AJAX on front-end
Mobile friendly
