WordPress Plugins Up For Adoption

I have decided to clean out plugins that I have stopped maintaining. A few need updating while others need to be re-written from scratch.

They were popular back in the day when I released them initially but I have moved on to many other projects since then and had completely forgotten about them. I am sure they can be great again in the right hands. If you are interested in any of these plugins then please do get in touch.

As I want to move these over to someone else as fast as possible it will be first come first served but I would like to read why you want to adopt them and what plans you have to maintain them in the long run. I look forward to reading your proposals.

Plugins up for Adoption

Jigoshop Photos Product Tab

Description: Extends Jigoshop to allow you to display all images attached to a product in a new tab on the single product page.

Reason for Adoption: No longer develop for Jigoshop as I prefer WooCommerce.

Jigoshop Video Product Tab

Description: Extends Jigoshop to allow you to add a Video to the Product page via additional product tab, allowing your customers to view the video you embedded.

Reason for Adoption: No longer develop for Jigoshop as I prefer WooCommerce.

Welcome Buddy

Description: Welcome your new buddies to your social network with a welcome email along with their login credentials.

Reason for Adoption: Originally build for a client, this was my first and only contribution that I have made to BuddyPress. Since BuddyPress now has a new email system built in, this plugin is broken due to similar function names. I’m sure someone who has experience with BuddyPress more would be able to get this working again with no problems. It’s also an email that is still not part of the core of BuddyPress so there is potential.

WooThemes Framework Identifier

Description: Displays version of WooThemes Framework in Right Now dashboard widget. If an update is available a link to the framework update page is displayed and the version that is available from WooThemes.

Reason for Adoption: Have not used a WooThemes theme in a long time except for Storefront but that does not have the WooThemes framework.

WP E-Commerce Right Now

Description: Displays the current months sales, transactions and more on the dashboard. Requires WP Shopping Cart plugin by Instinct Entertainment.

Reason for Adoption: Not used WP E-Commerce for a very longtime. If this feature is built into the core of the plugin now then let me know and I will delete it instead.

Auto Load Next Post has a New Site

With the release of WordPress 4.7 I thought it was time to officially have Auto Load Next Post site to be powered by WordPress seeing how it is a WordPress plugin after all.

The new default theme Twenty Seventeen seemed appropriate and is WooCommerce ready so I went that. The customiser controls were a little confusing at first to match the demo of the theme but I decided to stick with the basics.

The menu navigation was the most important part of the site that I needed to get right so users know what to look for.

Links to documentation, support, f.a.q.’s and now a feature roadmap listing what is to come and in the future is available.

Images are provided by Unsplash.com and the site uses only a few plugins:

  • JetPack
  • Mailchimp for WordPress
  • WooCommerce
  • WP Rocket
  • Yoast SEO

I hope you like it, download the plugin and use it or give it a try and signup for the newsletter for news on Auto Load Next Post Premium.

P.S. Would love to add more feedback from social media such as Twitter so please use hashtag #alnplugin in your tweets. Thank you.

Black Friday 2016

black-friday-75-off-woocommerce-extensions

It’s Black Friday in the U.S. and while it is not officially a holiday it no longer seems to be something just for them. Over the past decade, other countries such as the U.K. France, and even India have copied the same sales pitch to boost increase in sales.

The good thing about a digital Black Friday sale is that you don’t have to cue up at your local store, get trampled over as the store door opens or fight with other customers wanting the last item.

e-Commerce stores can offer you digital items quickly with none of the Black Friday madness.

I’m celebrating Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so I am super excited to offer you a huge 75% discount on both of my WooCommerce extensions for the next 4 days only.

  1. WooCommerce Match Box
  2. WooCommerce Mix and Match Discount

Use the following code at checkout to take advantage of this deal:

But be sure to get in quick! Sale ends on Monday the 28th of November at 11:59:59PM (GMT +1 hr).

New WooCommerce Tutorials Coming Soon

I’m going to be posting new tutorials soon for WooCommerce leading up to Christmas. These tutorials range from tips for shop owners and new possibilities for developers.

A tutorial will be posted each week. Once the tutorial is posted you are welcome to comment, like and share with others it may be of use too.

To find out when the first tutorial is published, subscribe to my newsletter, like my new Facebook page and follow me on Twitter.

If you have something in mind that you think would be good as a tutorial, leave a comment below and I will see what I can come up with.

Please do not ask for support for WooCommerce.

Thank you.

Mix and Match Special

Holloween is just around the corner and what better way to introduce two treats for store owners running on WooCommerce to display your products much better and offer a great deal at the same time.

WooCommerce Match Box - Example - Woo Apparel

Until the 1st November, you can purchase these two extensions I have been developing over the past few months at a discounted price.

Both are for the WooCommerce Mix and Match Products extension sold at WooCommerce.com

One changes the display of the container while the other allows you to provide a discount once a certain amount of items has been added to the container.

You can buy them individually here and here or buy them both here for an extra bundled discount.

Enjoy.
