The Lowdown:
This plugin help you build an advent calendar into your web site where you can offer up something new everyday leading up to christmas. You can create specific landing URL for each and maybe offer up a special of some sort to your visitors. They do have a premium version of this plugin which allows you to expand it out a bit and have dynamic URL and QR codes and the ability to create your own coupons. Even have some stats to see how things are going. The basic looks like it could be an interesting way to gauge offering up 24 days of specials.

The Lowdown:
While the use of this plugin is not explained very cearly it does appear it can helpl you speeed up your WordPress website by filtering which plugins can use which routes in the Rest API. This looks like it could be of bennifit but it will require you to upgrade your knowledge of the REST API and all it routes and how they imnpact your plugins. It looks like something you could quickly make a mess out of your website with. While just as easily making your site run faster.

Listener Feedback / Audio Clips

We like listener feedback you can leave feedback via our contact page, Speakpipe or email us direct.

Well we finally got some feedback about the show from a listener who has stopped listening, according to his email. I am pretty sure for a long time I have come across as arrogant and tended to take things a bit to personal well that is and has been changing in my life.. He suggested we were begging too much on the show, and well as we wanted a value for value model and it does tend to sound that way. We are done with that though. He made some suggestions how how the reviews could be improved by talking about the code, the install base or the update cycles, but I have always felt this was not necessary. what is important about a plugin is how easy is it to use, does it solve a problem and can you make money with it.

The feedback is much appreciated J and hope your SEO business does well
