WP-LatestPhotos  (2012-06-01 3:10pm GMT)

WordPress plugin WP-LATESTPHOTOS

WordPress plugin WP-LATESTPHOTOS

WP-LatestPhotos is a WordPress plugin which extends your media library and gives the ability to highlight some of your latest photos. [read full description]

WP-LatestPhotos is a WordPress plugin which extends your media library and gives the ability to highlight some of your latest photos. Selected images can be shown in your sidebar—or wherever you need them to be—through the shortcode or inline PHP code.

Features

  • Sidebar widget and shortcode support
  • Photo randomizer
  • Highly customizable through CSS. Plugin provides example CSS which can be used for demo purposes and can be switched off in the plugin settings. This way you can define your own CSS for your thumbnail galleries without being stuck with the excessive styles which most plugins come with, slowing down your website.
  • Plugin provides the ability to include Thickbox bundled with your WordPress installation but you also can switch it off and use any other external library. It supports: Thickbox, Fancybox, Lightbox, Shadowbox. If you would like to use any other media viewer you’re should install an appropriate plugin.
  • Thumbnails are located in the default image folder and named according to the WordPress convention.
  • No performance bottlenecks. Thumbnails are generated only once—when marked.
  • AJAXified thumbnail image cache gets rebuilt in case you change thumbnail size in the settings. Re-generating 10 images per request occurs with a little delay, so your server won’t be overloaded and scripts won’t stop working with a timeout error.

Usage

Use WP-LatestPhotos shortcode to add your photos to your post.

[WP-LatestPhotos limit="6"]

Also you can do it using these lines of PHP:

$options = array('limit' => 6, 'echo' => 1, 'link' => 'thickbox');
wp_latestphotos($options);

Options

  • limit – number of images to display (6 by default)
  • id – you can specify an ID for the unordered list of images
  • link – one or more values that determine the URL of where a clicked image takes the user to

Possible values for link option are:

  • post_parent – URL of the post to which the image is attached (it works only if image is actually attached, doh)
  • attachment – attachment page URL (works only if page is attached to a post)
  • full – full-size image URL
  • thickbox, fancybox, lightbox or shadowbox – media viewer dependent link
  • empty value means no link

You can mix these values up too. For example, you can use a sequence like this: post_parent, thickbox. If an image is attached to some post it uses a link to this post, otherwise it uses a Thickbox-dependent link.

  • before, after – additional HTML before and after an IMG tag of each photo
  • echo – 0 or 1, automatically outputs generated HTML; useful when applying a function inside PHP templates

ClixCorp Post Category Excluder for WordPress  (2010-02-02 1:47am GMT)

Provides a row of checkboxes on the post edit screen to exclude them from archive, tag, search, home page, and logged in status. [read full description]

This plugin allows the author to exclude certain posts from archive, tag, search and home page listings. Authors can also exclude posts to appear ONLY to logged in users, thereby forcing membership. The exclusion check boxes appear directly on the edit post page, no need to access the program separately from the admin panel. This is what makes the plugin better than some of the other excluder plugins out there.

The editing checkboxes on the post edit screen are: Disable listing on home page; Disable on tag listing; Disable listing in archives; Disable listing in search; Disable listing for users not Logged In; Disable but show available if Logged In.

The last two options allow hidden content to exist in the system, where it will be displayed if the user is logged in. On these posts that are excluded from listing or display, the author can specify: (a.) Disable from listing if not logged in, or, (b.) Disable from listing if not logged in but let browser know it is there if they do log in.

In situation a, the post is not displayed (direct url will show a 404), and it is not listed in the menus, (unless you have a different plugin/template scheme that will override wp filters).

In situation b, the post will be replaced with a customized message (admin->tools) like 'Sorry, this content is available to logged in users only'. The links to the protected content will be visible.

This plugin is designed to be customized by the end user. The code is simple and heavily documented, and uses only WordPress functions. You should be using WP version 2.7 or greater for this plugin to work properly.

If a comment is held for moderation an email message is sent to the comment author with a link to verify the comment author's email address. When the comment author clicks on that link the comment gets approved immediately. This makes discussions more lively as users don't have to wait for the blog admin to approve the comment.

Blog owners may also choose to hold the comments in the moderation queue even after successful verification. The verification status is shown in the comment lists in the admin.

If an author has a previously approved comment and his comments gets approved automatically according to the 'comment_whitelist' option in WordPress no email is sent.

Improve the usability of your Wordpress CMS system. This plug-in creates a dashboard widget with clearly labeled large buttons of the most common tasks one would perform when using wordpress as a content management system.

I have found that particularly when handing a Wordpress CMS over to less than tech-savvy clients, there is often confusion on how to perform some of the more simple tasks simply because the Wordpress side menu can be overwhelming. This plugin creates a simple to use dashboard interface that will let clients easily post, edit, manage users and change widgets with out having to do any hunting or searching.

VoucherPress  (2014-11-22 9:55pm GMT)

VoucherPress is a WordPress plugin that allows you to give downloadable, printable vouchers/ticket/coupons/tokens in PDF format away on your site. [read full description]

Have you ever wanted to give away vouchers, tickets, coupons or tokens on your website? If so this plugin is for you. You can create a voucher with whatever text you want, choosing the layout and font from a range of templates (you can also add your own templates). Vouchers can then be viewed, downloaded and printed from a specified URL.

There are shortcodes to add a link to a particular voucher, to show an unordered list of all your vouchers, or to show the registration for to request a restricted voucher.

You can require visitors to provide their name and email address to get a voucher. If an email address is required an email is sent to the address with a link to the voucher URL. Each voucher has a unique code, and vouchers that have an email address associated with them can only be used once, so once a registration-required voucher is downloaded it can't be downloaded again.

WP Super Popup makes you able to easily create and manage modal and unblockable popups for your Wordpress blog. It is proved that a modal and graphically attractive popup (like the one generated by this plugin) have an high conversion! For example you can use it for creating subscription forms or to promote your product in a viral way. The popup content can be retrieved from an external URL or directly edited inline thanks to a WYSIWYG editor. The most powerful features of this plugin regards its competitors are the following:

  • Real WYSIWYG: The popup content is not affected by the stylesheets of your blog: what you edit is EXACTLY what you will see inside the popup

  • Live preview: you can directly test any update before saving the configuration options

  • Full compatibility with any caching plugin: the cookies are handled on the client side so the plugin is not affected by issues related to a caching system like WP Super Cache or W3 Total Cache

A Pro version with full support and additional features (like visitor email auto-load, exit popup and much more) is also available! Learn more by visiting this page: http://wppluginspro.com/wp-super-popup-pro/
