John’s Rant: What to rant about?
I would like to thank David and the guys over at http://FatCatApps.com with the plugin Quiz Cat. As reviewed on the last show I thought it was a great plugin but was having some issues. After they had a look it turned out it was me and the additional plugins I run on the WP Plugins A to Z site. But they found the issues and solved them and have added those fixes into their next update. So kuddos to the the guys at FAT Cat Apps.

Hello, John and Marcus,
I discovered your podcast after starting my first e-commerce website and it has been most helpful! I've run into an issue that I imagine a plug-in should solve but I can't find one that does what I need–or maybe it's that I haven't found the right terminology. If I am using multiple order fulfillment methods, is there a plug-in that will allow me to choose which method is assigned to which product? For example, if I'm selling t-shirts that are printed with Printful, pants that are housed at an order fulfillment warehouse, and various other items that I ship from my personal office, how can I assign each product in my store to just one of those three fulfillment options?
If anyone knows this answer, it's you!
You may have to do some combining of multiple plugins or better yet find one of the many fulfilllment plugins that are available and then have it customized to your needs, just think if you did that you could possible market it out to others in your situation.
You can add a new layer of security for your site and your users with this plugin. This also helps prevent users from sharing their login credentials in the case of a membership site. What it does is look at the IP that was last seen for the user logging in to see if it match's if not it send an email to the user for verification and the need to use the one time link in the email to login. You can also have it send notification to the site admin to see if users are trying to abuse the system. Simply install and activate this plugin and you have helped to secure it up a bit.
Another way to help add some security to your site. This plugin help block unwanted visitors by blocking thier IPs using the htaccess file and the IP list is stored in your database instead of the htaccess file. The big problem here is that you will need some tech skills as well as access to apache. So this plugin will not be of much value to anyone who is on a shared enviroment. But if you have the skills and access this can be of great help.
This is a very simple and strait forward Plugin for Woocommerce Shop Owners that would like to send their users to a thank you page that is different from the default Woocommece order received page. You can set the thank you page on a product by product basis. When the Plugin is installed you will see a new field under the General tab on each Product Edit Screen. This is where you can specify where you would like customers directed to after the purchase of that product.
This is add-on plugin for The Events Calendar and Events Manager, which allows you to automatically import events from meetup.com into The Events Calendar or Events Manager. As an add-on plugin this plugin need The Events Calendar or Events Manager Installed and activated. You can configure settings for this plugin at Meetup Import Menu in your WordPress dashboard. You can insert your meetup.com API key in settings section. After configure settings you can import meetup event from there.
