wordpress weekly round up

WordPress Weekly Round Up – 2 June 2013

I’m guessing that developers were busy celebrating the anniversary of WordPress this week and didn’t have time to code up much for us 🙂 That’s my way of saying it’s slim pickings for plugins this week! Of course, the repository has a number of new plugins this week. The main focus is on plugins that integrate with other platforms however. Not the usual stuff that Internet Marketers need or find usual.

Free WordPress Plugins

WP Employment – if you want to create a niche jobs board though you may find this little plugin useful

Digital Edition – bundle up your content and use it to create new posts or advertisements

Digital Edition
by Tim Shedor

Create an impressive collection of articles and multimedia or rebundle old content for round-up editions. Create a new edition and tag posts appropriately from the Dashboard. Posts that have a post format are supported and recommended, but not required.

Optionally allows for three full-page advertisements (appearing between every eight content items) and three small logos (with links) at a prominent display.

Custom Ribbon Maker – these little corner graphics can be useful. Add your own text and use it to promote a cause, as a call to action or show support for a group

Skype Master

skypemaster

Show users your skype status on your blog. Particularly useful if you offer a product or service where people may have pre-sales questions or need help and support.

TechGasp Skype Master
by TechGasp

Now that Microsoft bought skype and officially phased out live messenger, it was time to launch the ultimate skype communication tool for your wordpress. Skype Master allows you to display all 7 Skype action buttons, Call Me, Add Me, Chat with Me, View My Profile, Leave me Voicemail, Send Me a File.

Hold on, you don’t need to show them all in the frontend, you can select each individual action to display in the front end. We packed this extension with the 2 famous skype colors (green or blue) to better suit your template.

The horizontal position works great even inside your pages and posts with our shortcode framework. Read more below and check screenshots page.

All the skype action buttons are available in 4 Widgets, Original Skype Buttons, New Microsoft/Skype Buttons and the “top of the line” TechGasp transparent, glossy, Skype Buttons. Also includes the new Skype Share Button to turn your website viral.

Again and as usual with TechGasp extensions, the code is pristine, error free and with fast page loading times. Professional or business pages need to be fast to google rank better and to avoid website visits drop outs.

Ultimate Skype for wordpress, with style…

Event Expresso Requirements Check – A lot of people have issues with the Event Expresso plugin. It might be a plugin conflict or it may well be a server problem. Using this plugin you can test to see if the server is compatabile. If your server is compatabile then your issues are likely to be theme/plugin related conflicts.

Event Espresso Requirements Check
by Event Espresso

This plugin checks your server for some basic environment information to ensure compatibility with Event Espresso, the premium event management plugin for WordPress.
