Watson Finds

sent in by Alfredo Gutierrez
The LowDown:
What he says:
I wanted to let you know about this new WordPress plugin my best friend and I developed. It uses IBM's Watson to analyze copy for its emotional resonance, helping copywriters, marketers or any person to know the emotions of their content to always transmit the intended message by evoking the right feelings.
This plugin will add an icon to the WordPress text editor, so you will be able to scan and analyze the content you write in posts, pages, product descriptions and comments. You can also use the tone analyzer located in the “Analyze” tab to scan any other type of content that may not be used for WordPress, like emails, tweets, and more.
Every time you scan and analyze your content, the plugin will display a popup showing the insights divided in 5 different emotions: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and Fear. Bringing to light the intensity score of each emotion in percentages.
In the output popup you will have a timeline bar, which is a progress bar that will help you to review and keep track of every word you change in your content. You will be able to keep track of all your progress, compare all the changes or restore to an earlier version of your work.
You can use these insights to modify and improve every word until you get the content that will convey your intended message and inspires the reader to meet your objective.
We rely on IBM Watson as a pioneer system of cognitive computing to give you the power of artificial intelligence in your content.

Shortcode Maker

sent in by:Mithu A Quayium
The Lowdown:
This is a plugint hat will allow you to create additional short codes, it does seems to work in a slightly different way than other shortcode generators I have useed. It uses a standard custom post type with the addition of attributes. It looks to be pretty good for some additional itemes you would need a short code for such as say a regular piece of content that wou might like to change site wide. All in all looking pretty good. Also I found the video for demonstarting it a hoot since it was robot generated.

WordSync allows you to synchronise posts, pages, users, taxonomies, attachments and settings between two WordPress installs. After setting up the link between the two sites using a secret key, you can perform a sync on the target site which will show all changes needed to bring it's content in sync with the source site. You can select which of these changes you'd like to synchronise across before the sync is performed. WordSync will handle updating site urls automatically, download attachments and maps users, posts and attachments from one site to the other without conflicts.

Export Comment Emails

When a visitor leave a comment on your website, it's a good chance for you to keep in touch with them via email. And you will need a tool to export all emails from your comments.
