Sidekick

The Lowdown:

this is a pretty nice back end helper for your clients or even your self. With several per-installed walk-toughs recorded and playing. You can make life easier for your clients.

Rating 5 dragons

 

Spam Master

The lowdown

Stop spammers on your site in their tracks. This freemium plugin has limited use with the free version seems to work ok but is limited in it scope although you can add your own items to the white-list and blacklist it is not as smooth as other that I have seen.

Rating 3 dragons.

 

Stop Spammer Registrations Plugin

The Lowdown:

This plugin does an excellent job of stopping spammers of all sorts on your site but I did discover it can be a bit agressive and may have to be toned back a bit. Not a bad thing to get started but if its default setting are too much for you adjust them and you will be fine.

Rating 5 Dragons.

Team Members
https://wordpress.org/plugins/team-members/

This plugin adds a “Teams” section to the admin panel which allows you to showcase your staff/employees/people on your website the easy way. You can quickly add members to your team(s), add their picture, position, bios, social links, re-order them at anytime and display them anywhere with a simple shortcode.

Post Type Requirements Checklist
https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-type-requirements-checklist/

PTRC uses OOP standards to add options only for those metaboxes which are supported for each post type and to execute code only on those pages where it is needed. It works especially well for sites with many custom post types that require content to be entered in a specific way (ie. when a post type requires a specific page template or when the absence of a featured image will break the intended look of a post). Think of any theme or plugin that supports an image slider powered by a required featured image, and you can surely see where PTRC can come in handy.
