Having launched our new User Reviews process for plugins, I didn’t give most our readers any time to get their plugin reviews across to me. In spite of this, we received a total eight plugin reviews for five different plugins. Here’s the list. Do check out the links and read what the reviewer has to say. Did you like their review? Comment and tell them. Share your experiences of the plugins with them. WP Greet Box We reviewed WP Greet Box on January 18. WP Greet Box is a simple plugin lets you show a different greeting message to your new visitors depending on their referrer URL. WP Greet Box topped our list with three reviews of the eight reviews we received. JayPee had this to say: WP Greet Box not only helps you promote your RSS feed and increase your RSS feed readers but having these targeted suggestions on […]

Weekly Plugin Review, WordPress Plugins

It’s been more than two months since we began our Weekly Plugin Review. During this time, we’ve reviewed nine plugins. All of these posts received a good number of comments, with many requesting more features and with others being mini reviews of the commenter’s experience. So, why not take this a step further? Starting this week, we’re going to throw up the Plugin Review process to everyone. How will it work? As you know, every Sunday we pick one plugin to review. e.g. last Sunday, i.e. March 8, we reviewed the Feed Reading Blogroll plugin. After we publish our review, we’ll throw open the review process to all of you. You’ll need to publish a review of the plugin on your blog. Your review should contain a link to the corresponding review post on WLTC. After this, send an email to submissions AT wltc DOT net with the following information: […]

Weekly Plugin Review, WordPress Plugins

Do you display a list of links a.k.a. blogroll in your sidebar? If you do, then Feed Reading Blogroll is one must have plugin on your WordPress blog. Description This plugin provides a sidebar-widget and a template-tag that add an enhanced blogroll to your sidebar. It checks on all your linked sites, when the most recent update has occurred. The check is performed by reading the date of the most recent feed-item. The feeds must be valid RSS2 or ATOM-feeds, otherwise the plugin cannot read the date-information provided by the feed. The Plugin uses the Google AJAX Feed API to access the feeds. Demo Check out the sidebar of the author’s site. Review For starters, what I love about the plugin is that the author has made an excellent effort to create a complete plugin page on his site. The page contains detailed information about the plugin, including instructions on […]

Weekly Plugin Review, WordPress Plugins

One thing I’ve loved about WordPress 2.7.x is the ability to install plugins directly from the WordPress Plugin Repository. You don’t need to visit the individual site and instead just search for the plugin you want and then download, install and activate it. However, even now, you need to go to your WP-Admin to install your plugins. Improved Plugin Installation helps overcome this problem. Description: This plugin is an improvement to the current WP 2.7 plugin installation methods. It allows you to install one or more plugins simply by typing the names of the plugins or the download URLs in a textarea. This means you can install all your favorite wordpress plugins in one go! Furthermore, a bookmarklet is included which lets you install plugins directly from an external site. Review: Firstly, I love the plugin page. I’ve always encouraged authors to write detailed plugin pages on their blogs as […]

Today, I’ll be reviewing one of those plugins called Autoclose Autoclose enables a granular approach to managing pingbacks/comments/trackbacks on both posts and pages. Some of the highlights that the plugin features: Close Comments on posts/pages older than (number of days). Close Pingbacks/Trackbacks on posts? Close Pingbacks/Trackbacks on pages? Close Pingbacks/Trackbacks on posts/pages older than (number of days). The ability to configure when the plugin runs its configuration to detect if a comment/trackback/pingback need to be closed off. Last but not least, Autoclose also provides a checkbox to delete post revisions. So why would you want to use a plugin like this? For starters, based on my experience with blogging, the conversation on any particular blog post […]
