The Lowdown:

This is a pretty good leads plugin for real estate agents or mortgage brokers that is easy to get set up. Install activate and add as a widget to a widget area and add the email you want leads sent to. It does have everything ready to go for you and there is no way to customize the questions that are displayed. This can make life pretty easy for you unless you need something more specific. You can easily control the look and feel of the widget in the settings.

I do feel the plugin could benefit from being able to customize the questions and also change from the default privacy policy and terms although they are pretty good. It could also benefit with being able to have the leads dumped direct to something like Zapier or Salesforce other than that this is a pretty good plugin.

Rating 5 Dragons.

Better Click To Tweet

The Lowdown:
It has become pretty popular to provide an easy way for visitors to websites to send out a tweet. This plugin allows you to craft the perfect Tweetable quote to send out by your visitors. It add a new button in the editor where you craft that perfect tweet and then place it where ever you want in the text as a block quote type of box. All your visitors need to do is click to send a tweet mo effort on their part. A great little plugin.

The Lowdown:

This plugin allows you to create an Intranet website or use it to simply lock down a site such as a dev site from everyone. It has features that allow IP address though and without them everyone must login. It prevents access to all files on the site expect for the login window. By adding gravity forms you can have people from a specific domain only register for an account meaning the must have an email form specified domains before they can create an account, then it sens out automated auth code. This plugin is now ready for primetime and only available at WP Plugins A to Z support site store.

Grid Canvas – Pinterest Image Creator

Every time you create a blog post or a page, Grid Canvas will automatically detects all the images from the post and adds them to a grid layout. You can further do your own adjustments to make the image the way you like – you can add new images from the media library and drag each image to change its position. There are plenty of predefined grid layouts to choose from and there are more coming soon. You can also select the image size that is the most optimal for the different social networks – Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
When you are ready with your grid image design, the plugin will make a request to the Grid Canvas API to generate the image. The generated image is then stored in your Media Library and available for sharing on Pinterest, downloading or you can use it any other way.
Grid Canvas is still under development and it's free to use while in beta. Once the plugin is officially released, the Grid Canvas service will be available as a paid product with a free trial. But I'd check it out now.
