A Must Listen
If you're working in WordPress in any capacity this podcast is a must listen. Finding the right plugin can often take hours and this podcast does the heavy lifting for you. I've found solutions to problems I didn't even know I wanted to fix.
Ratings are given on a five point scale. For perfect plugins John gives a 5 Dragon Rating and Marcus says Perfect 5 out of 5.
I'd love to know the story behind the two ratings.
Maybe Marcus doesn't like dragons? 🙂
Great Resource Although I am just a WordPress “user” I always learn something new from the podcast. Thanks guys!

This plugin is designed to give you an easy way to track and display the top 10 visited posts on your website. Then allow you to display them in a widget or on a page post with a short code. One of the great uses for this is a site I am helping to build out that is for a gamer showcasing his videos from YouTube. This is being used to show the top ten videos from his YouTube Channel on his site.
Rating 4 Dragons.

Disable cart page for WooCommerce is a plugin that allows you to bypass the WooCommrce cart page, redirecting your customers directly to checkout page and also disable the ability to add multiple products to their orders.
Disable cart page for WooCommerce is ideal when you need to force your customers to buy only one product at a time from your WooCommerce catalog, but additionally, by modifying the standard WooCommerce shopping behavior, it greatly simplifies WooCommerce process of finalizing orders, increasing your users conversions and increasing your profits.
