WordPress Plugins

This is my first video plugin review for WeblogToolsCollection, so any feedback is appreciated.The plugin being reviewed is AJAXed WordPress v1.11.1 (Download | Plugin Homepage). The browser I used was Firefox 2.0 on Mac OS X Leopard. WordPress 2.5 was used to demonstrate the plugin’s compatibility with the upcoming version of WordPress.

Video Summary: AJAXed WordPress is a good plugin if you want some quick AJAX functionality in your WordPress theme.

Pros:

  • Easy installation.
  • Ingenious modular design.

Cons:

  • Some template editing.
  • Auto-inclusion of credit link (can be removed in the Plugin options).

Request for Feedback

Since this is the first video review, feedback is much appreciated. If you like these kind of reviews, then there will be more on the way.

Furthermore, if you would like your own plugin reviewed, please get in contact with me via e-mail (ronalfy+wltc @ gmail dot com). Please keep in mind I won’t review premium plugins. Also, it helps if your plugin merits itself to video reviews (minimal to no code editing).

    This is getting exciting! I love the fact that we are getting ahead before the release of 2.5. Which by the way is amazing

    “one point one one point one” Who comes up with these version numbers? You should be thankful that I decided not to start with version 3 because I would have been up to three point one four one five nine two six five… by now.

    One comment about the link: it can be disabled in the Administration panel on the overall comments tab at the bottom. It used to be on the front tab, but when I updated the front tab to be more informative, it got moved.

    @Aaron,

    Yes, I had to start the video over a few times because of that one :)

    That’s good to know about the removal option. I didn’t find the option the first time I poked around.

    It was a bit choppy with the moving of the view, but it was a good review. Videos are nice and simple. It gives a lot better information on how things works. Good job.

    Always enjoy video reviews. As silly as many people think they are, I watch 3DGame man review computer products.

    Keep it up! Ill visit every day!

    Thanks for taking the time to do this!

    I agree with m@. It’s really cool with a video with the review. But the movement takes a lot of focus away from what is going on. But still, really nice – I’m looking forward to the next video review ;)

    I really like this idea to make video reviews. It’s a lot more easy to follow than just text! :) Keep up the good work, I’m looking forward to see more of these video reviews.

    Glad to see video reviews for the best blogging (now its cms really, isnt it) platform in the world.

    I would recommend a better size and different wrapper (google video sucks for the quality this should be).

    Keep up the great work.

  9. Carson (46 comments.) says:

    Shouldn’t the version be pronounced “one point eleven point one?”

    For my part you should stick to text and static image based reviews. That allows the reader to digest the material at his or her own speed. With a video, if you miss or don’t understand something you have to rewind and replay. For me that is a nuisance.

  10. Weathervane says:

    What “… template editing”?

    Yes, the use of video is great but it has to be better scripted to be useful. I watched the video several times and still don’t know what I was supposed to learn.

    @Weathervane

    Not all features require editing, but if you want to do things like have your comment form or comments added to the homepage, and depending on your theme, you may have to make a few edits to the AWP comment form or comments template.

    Edits are mostly only needed for more “advanced” features.

  12. Ronald Huereca (66 comments.) says:

    Thanks everyone for your feedback. I’ll try my best to implement your suggestions for the next video.

    @Carson,
    Yeah, I suppose so. This video review is just supposed to give a brief overview. Some plugins don’t merit themselves well to textual reviews such as AJAXed WordPress, which is why I chose to do that one first. It sounds like video reviews are not for you, which I understand.

    @Weathervane,
    I’m not sure I fully understand your comment. I wasn’t trying to teach anything, just give my opinion on the plugin as a review. Is there something else I could have done to help in that aspect?

  13. Weathervane says:

    @Ronald
    The first question was answered. You mention templates possibly needing adjustment for this plugin but don’t suggest what they would be.

    The remark I made about your video is that you must script what you want to show, then move and speak slowly and deliberately. As Sara points-out in her comment above, the movement is difficult to follow. I agree with everyone here, though, that your use of video was just the right idea. Regards.

    Thank you for your supports. These plugins are very useful for my blog. Thanks again.

    Isn’t it a “plugin video review” rather than a “video plugin review” ? :)
