Adding cats to your friday!

Created a WordPress plugin that adds a random cat image to your blog if no featured images are specified in the post.

– Doesn’t Add-a-Cat to your pages and products
– Adds to Posts with no featured images (if you inline your posts with images, you will still Add-A-Cat – this is happening on my example blog.

Just a little fun-friday play around:

Adding a few things to my WP Toolkit

Watching videos always fills me up with joy and excitement about my future of my WordPress career.

What has really got me excited is a little secret project I am working on proofing for my peep’s back home to make rolling WP sites really easy – because I know many people whom still find dual-monitors exciting.

Here are a collection of plugins that have just made my day:

  1. MetaSlider (Free & Premium): This was a ‘happy find” as it was supported by the following plugin – but MetaSlider allows you to easily load up sliders using 4 different types (Nivo, Responsive, Flex and Coin sliders). Super easy to setup and generates either shortcodes or template tags for easy use — lets just say, this is quickly going to replace my twitter carousel in the future.
  2. Page Builder Plugin (Free):
    Fundamentally going to change how I build themes. Page Builder allows you to build custom page layouts on a per-page basis. It populates designated areas with any WP widget, so as a bonus – I get to make new widgets for PB, but it also incorporates MetaSlider above…. This gives users all the power of designers now.
  3. WP-Help Plugin (Free):
    Allows WP themes / installers to give documentation to users from Within WordPress Admin area, so once a customer logs in – they can always find the tutorials / help documentations you have prepared for them.

If all this is sounding a little excitable – its because they are all inspired by this talk: Jared Novack – 17,170,200 Websites in 6 Months.

Mood: Stupid excited!
