Looking For A WordPress Plugin?

It seems like a new WordPress plugin is released every day.  Some of these plugins simply add a line of text to a post but others can improve a blog’s SEO performance, add subscribers to a mailing list or improve the appearance of a blog.

Whichever way you look at it, if you want to have a successful, self-hosted WordPress blog and attract visitors and subscribers you need to use plugins.

This is where my new website, Shop For Plugins comes in.  It’s a WordPress Plugin Store and it currently has 25 plugins available with a further 10 to be added soon.  The plugins are sorted into categories which are Business, Marketing, Miscellaneous and SEO & Tools.  There are also special offers and featured plugins on the main page.

Visitors can create an account and PayPal is the preferred method of payment.  Most of the plugins are priced much lower than when they were first released and some are discounted by a further 50%.

As you might expect, the plugins come with either PLR or MRR and the zip files contain all the usual things you would find if you downloaded the file from the original product website.

For more information you can follow Shop For Plugins on Twitter or go direct to the website.

Evolve Theme Update Has Fixed My Blog

I’ve been a big fan of the free version of the Evolve WP Theme by Theme4Press since I started using it in October 2011.

I particularly like the social integration features, the options for placement of advertisements and the clean, modern appearance.

However, a recent update meant I was only able to display one widget in the sidebar and the others appeared centered at the bottom of the page.  I was so disappointed at the thought of having to change my blog theme again and couldn’t find another free theme which gave my blog a similar appearance and similar features to Evolve.

It now seems that the latest update (2.0.4) has fixed these issues and it probably fixed some others that I hadn’t noticed.  I’ll continue to use Evolve and hope that the next update doesn’t undo these fixes.
