WordPress Weekly Round Up – 25 August 2013

As usual it is a WordPress plugin feast this week with lots of developers geeking out over WordPress. I’ve sorted through the latest plugins to hit the repository and grabbed a selection of the most useful ones for WordPress internet marketer users.

Here goes ..

Free WordPress Plugins

Jameel’s Dev Tools – if you develop websites for clients then this handy plugin could save you a lot of time when you are transitioning the site to the client’s server. If you are doing the hosting yourself then you won’t need it 🙂

Jameel's Dev Tools
by Jameel Bokhari

This plugin adds a few useful features for when you are developing a website on WordPress. It is intended to be installed on a development server, or local installation when setting up a website and should be left installed after production to retain the shortcode commands.

Features Include:

  • A find and replace feature — to ensure an easy transition from your development site(s) to your live website. Using this function, replace all instances of your website’s url in image tags and links with shortcode for your site’s home url. The find and replace option isn’t just for links and images though, use it to replace any text with something else! As a precaution, after searching for a string, you are shown the # of instances and # of posts affected before commiting to your changes.
  • Dynamic Links[homeurl] shortcode, which translates into your website’s homepage. This is an essential tool for development. As you add images and internal links, replace your hard-coded links to [homeurl] so that when you switch your server over, your links and images still work! When using the visual editor, the plugin will still show images that use [homeurl] in their src.
  • Columns — This plugin features columns using shortcode. Use the [col] shortcode to wrap your text in a column, always ending with [/col] to end the column. Choose to use the plugin’s css or style it yourself. Columns can have a range of 12 widths, creating countless possible layouts. By default the width is 6 for two even half-width columns. See FAQ for more info, or go under the Columns tab in the plugin settings for help.

CPD Journals – I have to do continuous professional development every year for my job so I found this plugin interesting. Rather than the scraps of paper and receipts I keep you can keep a journal of your CPD activities. This plugin is for use with a multisite installation and for the situation where you have a number of members being supervised for instance. Saying that, I think you could turn this into something useful for a membership site where members had to do “homework”

cpd wordpress journal

CPD-Journals
by Saul Cozens

This is a plug-in to manage and support cohorts of people through a continuous professional development process by providing a platform for them to keep journals of their CPD activities. By providing a journal, participants in the CPD programme are encouraged to reflect on the things they are learning and to share their eperience and practice with others.

It turns a standard WP Multisite install into a network of participants and supervisors (new user roles). Each participant has their own journal blog that they can administer with all of the capabilities of an admin except for:
* they cannot add, remove or edit any other administrators
* they cannot edit or remove the posts or pages of other users

Supervisors have all the rights of an administrator except the ability to add/edit other administrators. They are also provided with additional dashboard widgets to show them which of their assigned participants have posted recent and most frequently.

The network administrator has full site-admin permissions and is responsible for adding new participants and assigning them to supervisors. The network admin is sent an email at 2am each morning informing them is any participants are not assigned a supervisors or vice versa.

Documentation for Network Administrators

  • Adding Participants and Supervisors
    You can add Participants and Supervisors like any other users, but after adding the new user you are taken to the new user’s profile where you are able to:

    • set them as a Participant or a Supervisor
    • create a new journal (if they are a Participant). It is possible for Participants to share a journal.
    • assign them a Supervisor (if they are a Participant). It is possible to assign more than one Supervisor to a Participant.
    • assign them one or more Participants (if they are a Supervisor).
  • Editing and deleting Participants and Supervisors

    • Deleting a Participant will not delete their journal, just remove their ability to edit it. If you need to delete a journal, delete both the user and the site associated with that Participant.
    • Editing and updating a Supervisor user profile will restore that Supervisor’s permissions on their Participants’ journals. This is useful if another Supervisor (or site-admin) accidentally removes a Supervisor.
  • Participant activity
    There are 2 additional dashboard widgets available to allow Administrators and Supervisors to monitor Participant activity (and to identify where to provide support and encouragement).

    • Posts by Week shows a graph of how many posts have been created in the past few weeks. Each week bar can be interogated to reveal what was posted in that week.
    • Posts by user shows a graph most/least active users. Again each graph bar can be interogated to show what has been posted by that user.
  • Orphaned Participants and redundant Supervisors
    Another dashboard widget shows a list of Participants who do not have Supervisors assigned to them and any Supervisors with no Paticipants to look after. This information is also emailed to the Site Administrator each night at 2am.

  • Settings
    At present the only configuration option available for the CPD journals plugin is the default options for new journal/blogs. These options are passed to the function wpmu_create_blog as the $meta paratmeter when new journals are created. This allows the site-admin to set defaults such as:

    • stylesheet=my_journal_stylesheet (to set a default child-theme)
    • comment_whitelist=0 (to turn off comment moderation – as all commenting is restricted to CPD users anyway)
  • Themes and plugins
    The Site Administrator can install and enable any standard WordPress themes and plugins. However, care should be taken to ensure that themes/plugins that allow abitrary PHP code to be inserted and run by Participants (or Supervisors). Providing a wide variety of configuratable themes to allow Participants to personalise thir journals and feel more ownership over them.

  • The default blog
    Every new user (Participants, Supervisors or standard WordPress users) get subscriber access to the default site blog. This allows the default blog to be used to keep all users upto date with what is happening on the platform as a whole or news about the CPD programme itself.

Documentation for Supervisors

A Supervisor is essentially an administrator for a standard WordPress site. This allows them to do all the things that the Network Administrator allows them to, generally this includes:
* adding, removing and editing users’ profiles
* creating, editing and deleting all posts and pages
* activating and configuring plugins and themes (but not installing)
As this is all standard WordPress functionality, help, advice and support can be found on the WordPress.org documentation and support community.

  • Monitoring Participant activity
    Participant activity should be regularly and frequently monitored to ensure that those who are active are recognised and rewarded with feedback and those who are not engaging are encouraged with advice and support. There are 2 additional dashboard widgets available to allow Supervisors to monitor Participant activity (and to identify where to provide support and encouragement).

    • Posts by Week shows a graph of how many posts have been created in the past few weeks. Each week bar can be interogated to reveal what was posted in that week.
    • Posts by user shows a graph most/least active users. Again each graph bar can be interogated to show what has been posted by that user.

Documentation for Participants

Participants are administrators of their own journal and have all of the standard permissions that a WordPress Admin has, except:
* They cannot edit or delete the posts or pages of other users
* They cannot edit the profile or users who are Supervisors or Administrators. Nor can they create new users in these roles.
For help and advice on how to use WordPress to write and share CPD journals, refer to the WordPress.org support community.

Credits

This plugin was developed by Saul Cozens of CZN Digital, but was paid for by Sheffield University who requested that it be written to be useful to other organisations as well and released to the community as Open Source. Thank you to them.

by Julian Magnone

Auphonic Importer – Auphonic is one of those companies I love! If you haven’t heard of them before you can check them out here:

https://auphonic.com/

I love them because you can upload your audio and they will analyze it and do whatever it takes to make it sound good. And they do this for free!

Now you can easily import those podcasts for example that you have created straight to WordPress with this handy auphonic import to WordPress plugin

Auphonic Importer
by Kreg Steppe

This plugin for WordPress will read your productions on using the Auphonic service (via API) and pull the last 10 productions
into WordPress automatically. It will create a post with enclosure, with the category you choose, and you have the option
to put them in Published, or Draft mode to allow edits and add pictures, etc…and then publish.

  • Title of the production from Auphonic will be the Title of your post in WordPress.
  • The Summary (Description) of the Production in Auphonic will be the body of your WordPress post.
  • Any Tags you put in your Auphonic preset or production will come over to WordPress as Tags.
  • This plugin only recognizes Productions from Auphonic that produce an url with a file type of mp3, mp4, and m4a.
  • If you are using Dropbox as a service in Auphonic to place your file for example, you may not get an url directly to your file and it therefore will not be imported.

Infusionsoft for Developers – as a lot of internet marketers using WordPress also use Infusionsoft I’ve added this one for you

Infusionsoft WordPress Developers Plugin
by Infusionsoft

This plugin is primarily designed for developers adding Infusionsoft API hooks for use in WP. It only provides a basic feature set for the average WordPress user.

If you are a Developer

We hope this plugin can be useful and make integration with the Infusionsoft API a little bit easier. This plugin is designed for you to disassemble – take part or all of it for your implementations and integrate Infusionsoft functionality into your plugin, or instruct your users to install this and use the Infusionsoft global object as defined below.

We do ask that you follow the GPL and give credit where credit is due.

If you are an Infusionsoft and WordPress user

If your plugin says that you’ll have Infusionsoft functionality enabled after installing this plugin, please do so, and then set your Infusionsoft API credentials in the plugin settings. You’re done!

If you are Looking for simple non-developer Infusionsoft Plugins

There is probably a better plugin for day to day use than this one. Some include:
– Infusionsoft + Gravity Forms Integration: https://wordpress.org/plugins/infusionsoft/
– Infusionsoft Web Tracking Code: https://wordpress.org/plugins/infusionsoft-web-tracking-code/ or https://wordpress.org/plugins/infusionsoft-web-tracker/
– Infusionsoft Affiliates: https://wordpress.org/plugins/infusionsoft-affiliates/
– Infusionsoft Web Forms: https://wordpress.org/plugins/novak-solutions-javascript-infusionsoft-webform-plugin/

Using the Infusionsoft API

A global $infusionsoft variable is available from the moment the plugin is loaded. This means you can access the Infusionsoft plugin any time after the plugins_loaded action is fire, including init.

If there is an error with your request (either a missing setting field or a bad request to Infusionsoft), the plugin will return a WP_Error object with a message of what went wrong. This allows you to easily check for any errors using is_wp_error() and using any of the helper functions for getting the message. Read more about WP_Error here.

Formatting Requests

Requests using the $infusionsoft object are formatted and then submitted directly to the Infusionsoft API. A request is structured by using the service name as the function (no uppercase first letter), the method as the first argument, and an array of data for the arguments.

For example, to use the AffiliateService.affSummary method, the following call would be made:

$infusionsoft->affiliate( 'affSummary', array(
    'affiliateId' => array( 123, 234, 345 ),
    'filterStartDate' => '2012-12-01',
    'filterEndDate' => '2012-12-31'
) );

For the AffiliateProgramService.getAffiliatesByProgram request, the call would be:

$infusionsoft->affiliateProgram( 'getAffiliatesByProgram', array( 'programId' => 123 ) );

Note that only the first letter is shifted from uppercase to lowercase.

Sample Request

// Load the Infusionsoft API class
global $infusionsoft;

// Add a contact using the ContactService.add method
$contact = $infusionsoft->contact( 'add', array( 'Email' => '[email protected]' ) );

// Check whether or not the API returned an error
if ( ! is_wp_error( $contact ) ) {
    // The $contact variable contains the return value as specified in the documentation
    echo 'The new contact has the ID: ' . $contact;
} else {
    // There was an error, which uses the WP_Error class
    echo 'There was an error! Message: ' . $contact->get_error_message();
}

Gravity Forms Integration

This plugin has basic integration with Gravity Forms built in, primarily to demonstrate functionality with another plugin. This functionality will be turned off if the Infusionsoft Gravity Forms plugin by Zach Katz is also installed.

Simple Documentation – another plugin super useful for offliners! This one allows you to provide documentation in the dashboard for WordPress users.

simple-documentation

Simple Documentation
by Mathieu Hays

This plugin helps webmasters/developers to provide documentation through the wordpress dashboard.

This plugins allows you to share 4 types of content:

  • “Link” It is a simple link with a custom title and url which will open in a new tab
  • “Video” Allow you to put an embed code from websites like Youtube, Vimeo, ScreenR (all the ones which gives you iframe based code)
  • “Quick Note” This a short text which intend to help by giving a short tip! (for longer content use Links!)
  • “File” Upload a file to the wordpress installation and display the link. (The file link can be filled manually if you upload content by FTP).

As an administrator, you can add, edit or remove content, choose the number of items displayed per page in the widget, the targeted backend user role and customize the widget title and welcome message.

Backend Users and Administrators can pin items to highlight them.

I’m currently working on rewriting this plugin from scratch in order to improve its reliability and make it easier to maintain. Thanks for your patience.

Book Review – if you like reading books and sharing them with your readers then you’ll enjoy how you can format and rate the book using this plugin

book review wordpress plugin

Book Review
by Donna Peplinskie

NOTE: Given the imminent release of the Gutenberg editor in WordPress 5.0, the Book Review plugin is no longer being maintained. It has been replaced by Book Review Block, which is intended to be used together with the Gutenberg editor.

Save Time

Book Review saves you time when writing your reviews. No more copying and pasting or manually entering the details of a book. Instead, you provide the ISBN, and Book Review will automatically populate information like title, author, and even the cover photo for you.

Increase Traffic

Book Review can help increase traffic to your site by making your Google search result stand out from the rest. And that means more users clicking through to visit your site.

See the Screenshots tab for an example of what your Google search result might look like.

Monetize Your Site

If you’re interested in throwing monetization into the mix, Book Review can help with its custom links feature. Just enter the affiliate URLs for Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or any other online store, and Book Review will take care of adding the links to each of your reviews.

Review More Than Just Books

One of the most powerful features of Book Review is the ability to add custom fields to each of your reviews. Custom fields enable you to review movies, music, TV shows and so much more!

Update Shaming – if you need to clear the blog cobwebs but don’t know where to start

Update Shaming
by Chris Reynolds

The purpose of this plugin is to shame content editors into updating page content that has not been touched in a long time, while simultaneously providing an overview of the oldest pages on a site. Also: gifs.

The plugin adds an Out of Date Pages subpage under the Pages menu, which breaks all the pages on the site down by last modified date, grouped by years since it’s been modified. Each page listed has a link to edit the page. All images on the Out of Date Pages subpage are sourced from reactiongifs.com.

Marketing Optimizer – go conversion testing mad with this plugin

Marketing Optimizer
by Marketing Optimizer, [email protected]

Now more comprehensive than ever. Test everything, quickly and efficiently.

We listened to your feedback and improved the interface and functionality to make testing your content easier than ever. Here’s a partial list of the improvements we added with this update:

  • All New Free Call-to-Action (CTA) Templates
  • All New CTA Testing Suite
  • All New Free Pop-Up/Overlay Templates
  • All New Pop-Up/Overlay Testing Suite

We also made improvements to all your favorite features, including:

  • Automatic Tracking of All WordPress Pages
  • Testing WordPress Pages from your Page List
  • Creating WordPress Page Variations from the Page Detail Interface
  • Testing Landing Page
  • Free Landing Page Templates

A Must-Have Conversion Rate Optimization Plugin

You have no doubt heard of A/B testing, the process of showing visitors one of two (or more) versions of the same web page/CTA/overlay, and then tracking which one created the most revenue, leads, signups, downloads, purchases, registrations, or comments. With the Marketing Optimizer WordPress Plugin, now you can test every web page, landing page, call-to-action, and overlay on your site. Turn your visitors into data and use that data to improve your business’s bottom line. It’s a must have for every serious digital marketer.

Free Templates

Don’t have the time or resources to create landing pages or CTAs? Don’t worry, we have you covered. Use our free templates for landing pages, calls-to-action and overlays to quickly add powerful conversion elements to your site and begin testing immediately.

A/B Test Multiple Web Pages, CTAs and Overlays

Landing pages are the obvious choice for A/B testing, but every element on your website that receives traffic contributes to conversions, and it pays to test those, too. Want to increase the number of people who complete your email sign up overlay? Now you can test that, too. And your report will include the results for each page variant and the conversion rate of visitors that saw that version.

Create Variations Quickly

When editing any of your WordPress pages, CTAs or overlays, just click the ‘Add a Variation’ tab and the system automatically creates a new variation of the site element you are working on. Test any content, with any template, easily and quickly. Some common changes that have been shown to increase conversion rates are:

  • Changes to headlines
  • Changes to page layout
  • Change images
  • Changes to colors
  • Changes to feedback forms
  • Adding testimonials
  • Adding trust symbols
  • Modifying button types and styles
  • Placement of the CTA
  • Length of time before showing webpage overlay/pop-up

Track Conversions Accurately

What conversions matter most to you? Web form fills? Email sign ups? Whatever they may be, track every conversion with a simple shortcode that lets the system know that the visitor has just completed a successful conversion, and the proper version of all the web pages that visitor saw is credited with a conversion. This allows you to have many different conversion goal pages and still track all your conversions in properly.

Adjustable Epsilon Greed, That Multi-Armed Bandit

The ‘Multi-Armed Bandit’, or Epsilon Greedy, method of rotating variations is the fastest way to determine variation winners. It’s also, by far, the most profitable way to display your test pages. Never heard of it? Here’s how it works: the page with the highest conversion rate gets 90% of the traffic (‘Exploitation’), and the other variations are randomly rotated through the remaining 10% (‘Exploration’). In other words, 90% of the time the system chooses the best version of your page. The rest of the time it explores new variations in the hopes that they will prove to be a better solution. Since sometimes it makes more sense to explore more than 10%, you have the ability to simply move the slider to explore between 10% and 100%.

Gravity Forms Integration

Use the awesome Gravity Forms form builder on your WordPress site, and easily post all your form data directly into your Marketing Optimizer web application.

Marketing Optimizer Integration

This plugin is a must for current subscribers to the Marketing Optimizer software. It includes automatic Marketing Optimizer javascript publishing code, phone tracking integration, and more.

100% Cache Compatible

Tested to be compatible with W3 Total Cache, WP Super Cache, Quick Cache, and probably all WordPress caching plugins. Tested to be compatible with WordPress hosting services, like WP Engine and Pagely, which cache your content on the server level. This plugin doesn’t just ‘bust’ your caching, but utilizes your caching solution to retain the performance enhancements from them.

Funniest Plugin Award

This week the funniest plugin goes to the Kittens for Comments developers!

kittens for comments plugin

Kittens for Comments
by Will Brubaker

You’ve poured your heart and soul in to writing fascinating blog posts.  You know you have a lot of readership, but nobody except your mom is leaving comments.  That’s a bit discouraging right?  Entice your readers to leave comments by giving them a picture of a cute kitten in return.

Just prior to the comment form coming in to view, an unobtrusive panel will be displayed with a short message that says: “Your comments make us happy.  Leave a comment, get a kitten!”

 

When a comment is submitted, a picture of an adorable kitten is displayed in a modal window.

Caveats:

This plugin assumes that your comment form is A) built with the ‘comment_form’ WordPress function and B) that your comment form has an id of “commentform” (This is the WordPress default, but your theme developer may have changed the behavior for whatever reason.
This plugin assumes that comment forms only appear on single posts and only loads the code when a single post (or page) is loaded.
 

Other Information

I created this plugin for my own amusement and am offering it for you to use as you wish.  If you find it useful but would like more features, please do ask.
