And first up I have a plugin that help you clean up spam registrations

User Spam Remover

https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-spam-remover/

Version:1.0
Requires:3.9 or higher
Compatible up to:4.8.2

The Lowdown:
If you run a membership site or an e-store of any kind you will eventually run into the spam registrations. Or in one case I recently had the site had been left fallow for a while and the registrations just accumulated to the tune of 24k. I was looking at a daunting task of cleaning up this mess and found this fantastic plugin that gets in there and lets you clean accounts based on age and usage I was able to get this mess cleaned up in about 20 min vs. the hours or the headache of going though the database to get it cleaned up.

Simple enough to use install activate and then set age threshold and go, you can leave it to automatically remove the accounts or do a manual removal which drops them at a rate of 1k per click.

A fantastic plugin

The Lowdown:

When turning over a site to your clients many times you will want to simplify the dashboard for them so they don't have to deal with allot of the information that does not relate to their business. This plugin allows you to white lable WordPress and to remove all that junk from the dash board which is distracting and do some branding customizations. This will give you some personalizations to the dashboard setting the site apart from the norm.

Styles the video & audio players / playlists in a better way
Loop button for audio player
Album art added to audio player
Track title, album & artist name added to audio player

2 colors available for each player or playlist (select skin directly from post editor)
Enhanced video subtitle visiblity

The Lowdown:
With all the crazy weather right now this is a great plugin to add national Weather Service Alerts to your website. Once install you do have to add a couple things. You need to build the tables from the setting page and add your maps API to display google maps. You then display it on your site using short code listing the city, state zip ect.. This could be a useful plugin if your providing information on your site.

One of the most glaring oversights in WooCommerce is the ability to preview upcoming items. Usually you would want to use this when you have new design concepts or product that is coming. This plugin allows you to take preorders for it without actually running the order until the item arrives.
