Suggest by Joe Mezzanini listener to show
What Joe had to say:
It's hard to find a simple plug-in that simply lists files/folders in a page/post – – this is it and it's well supported and documented with many examples
This plugin does an easy job of allowing you with a short code to display files for access by your users for easy download or traversing the folder to sub-directories. They can then when they find the file they want download it.
Recommended use would be in a membership only page or a protected page to prevent public access to files.
Rating 5 Dragons.
This is a plugin to help you show or hide widgets on your site. While it looked to do the job at first I discovered it will only hide or show on sections and the front page. It does not help when you want to hide on a specific post or page only. If you need only sections done this is for your all in all not too bad.

Multiple Domain Mapping on Single Site
If you have a stand alone website and a few extra domains (lets be real who doesn't) then you can use this to map them to specifiic splash pages or special spots on your site. It works quite well setup fast just a great plugin.

Marketplace for WooCommerce
This is a very unique twist on a WooCommerce plugin. It lets users sell on your store once you approve them as vendors, allowing you to earn commission on their sales.
• Vendors can customize their public pages
• Admins can setup the url slug of vendors public pages
• Admins can choose a custom label for vendors
• Users have to apply to become vendors
• Admins can setup vendors capabilities to upload files, view orders, publish products automatically and more
• Admins can block vendors at any time
• Setup commissions by percentage or fixed value,
• Commissions can be manually or automatically created on order complete, processing, you choose it.
• Vendor’s products have a tab displaying info about the vendor, like its logo and description

Remember when you were younger and you would receive Birthday Cards in the mail from all your relatives? For some reason that is all but gone. People instead prefer to just send their Birthday wishes with Facebook. This plugin allows you to emial your users or customers a special birthday greeting straight out of WordPress automatically. This is a great way to send your users a special birthday promo code or special offer as well. This only works for users that have entered their birthday on their user profile, so this plugin is probably best for a new site.

Order Signature for WooCommerce
Add a nice responsive signature pad to your website’s WooCommerce checkout page. This is a great plugin for getting your customers to accept the terms and conditions of your site with a perfectly legal digital signature attached to their WooCommerce order. This has many useful applications and is very easy to set up and install on your site.
