WordPress Weekly Round Up – 14 April 2013

Last week I was able to report on a ton of handy dandy WordPress Plugins and Themes suitable for internet marketers. This week it is slim pickings …

Some of my faves this week are:

Free WordPress Plugins

If you have an ecommerce site then you will love the 360 product viewer plugin. This plugin allows you to rotate images 360 degrees to get a panoramic view of the item. There is a free plugin with some great features including zoom control and playback settings so the visitor can really engage with your product. There is also an upgrade to a paid version that has additional features and support.

If you need free images for your blog then the new Pixabay Images plugin allows you to search public domain images and insert them on your website

Premium WordPress Plugins

A new plugin from Code Canyon caught my eye this week. It’s called Sabai Directory for WordPress

It allows you to create a directory using any wordpress theme, add listings, reviews, photos, voting and monetization is included.

It costs $25 for the Regular Licence.

Hangers is a cute plugin to bring out the inner designer in you. It allows you to “hang” images on your site. You can use it to hang your social media icons but would also look good hanging “lessons”, “products” and “photographs”. I could see this being used on a lot of offline sites to really add a bit of pizzazz. It’s a bargain at only $11

WP Back It Up – is yet ANOTHER backup plugin. This plugin backs up your sites, restores and helps you clone your sites. There are a number of licensing options to choose from when you purchase ranging from $19-99.
