ready for Cyber Monday.

In case you didn’t know, Cyber Monday is the first Monday after Thanksgiving and Black Friday and is now the day that most money is spent online – according to Wikipedia.

With this bundle, you get the HTML versions of the templates for non-WordPress sites, plus WordPress Page Template Plugin PRO versions of the templates too.

And I don’t mind saying they’re absolutely lovely – my personal favourite is XMAS003.

The PRO version of the Page Template Plugin includes some of the Big Ed functionality, plus some of the Magic Styles functionality and also Google Web Font support too, so it’s well worth having.

Plugin Great members will find them on the download page.

Auto Password Change Plugin

Update: The sale for the security conscious Auto Password Change plugin is now live at just $10.00 for the next 48 hours.

Buy now

***

Today, Thursday 21st November at 6.00pm GMT (1.00pm EDT) I’m releasing a NEW plugin called Auto Password Change.

During this sale ONLY it comes with full developer (client/flipper) rights, and ALSO resale rights* too. When the sale is over these rights will be removed and will be an optional purchase, so this is the best time to get the plugin.

The Auto Password Change Plugin WILL Make Your Users More Aware Of Security On Your Blogs

If like me you have third parties with admin rights logging into your WordPress sites – or you look after clients sites for them – then you want this plugin.

In a nutshell it gives you control over how often the users have to change their passwords.

Now then. I reckon most people aren’t *that* security conscious – it’s our default state. I’ve been given access to plenty of customer sites over the years and while I would never do anything to harm a site, not everybody has the same scruples as I do.

As a result I’ve seen some pretty poor passwords such as short, real words (e.g. apple, treetop and so on) and passwords with simple number replacements for certain letters (e.g. 4ppl3, tr33t0p) which isn’t much better.

(By default, on your WordPress user profile, it will tell you if your password is strong or not and my guess is most people’s aren’t.)

These passwords will fail to simple “brute force” attacks.

Part of the answer is to make your users more aware of the security problem and one way to do this is to get them to change their passwords on a regular basis.

Better still is to automate the process and that’s what this plugin does.

You get to set a password reset frequency where your users are required to change their password every so many days. You can also display a message to them when it’s time to do so.

In addition you can skip this requirement for admin users (not a good idea, but it’s in there anyway) and also ignore the users first time login. This is where you may have added someone manually to the site, or they’ve been added via a membership plugin or similar.

auto-password-change-03

Once this is in place, then you’re automatically making people aware of site security by default.

It’s important. I know…

In the past I’ve had a couple of blogs get hacked and defaced with ads and I know it’s because I’ve used poor passwords and left them in place for a very long time.

When they go down, that unplanned time to fix them hurts – even worse when it’s a client’s site – and the things is it’s all so very easy to avoid.

The plugin will also allow you to take manual control over a users last password reset date, so if you’re using a VERY secure password (I do), you can exclude yourself from the requirement to update your password by setting the date in the future, while still requiring all other admin users to change theirs on a regular basis.

auto-password-change-04

I’m sure that deep inside you know this is something you should be doing.

The sale starts today 21st November at 6.00pm GMT, and you can do one of two things.

#1 – Be one of the first to get the plugin at the starting price of $10.00.

#2Join the Plugin Great Membership and get AT LEAST two new plugins, themes or scripts every month for one fixed price that won’t hurt your pocket.

In reality, as I release so many products and also run weekend sales the chances are high that you’ll get 3 new products per month in the membership – in fact there have been THREE released so far this month if you include Auto Password Change.

As I write this I have four other plugins almost ready for release with several more in various stages of development all of which I’d like to release before the end of the year.

Becoming a member is the perfect way to never miss out on a product release of mine again.

And it’s cheaper too.  😉

* Having resale rights means you can sell it for a profit, not give it away, but your buyers don’t get the right to resell conferred to them, only you do. I am also toying with the idea of letting Plugin Great members have master resale rights to some of my plugins, but I’m still thinking about it so watch this space.

Magic Locker Plugin

Update: The sale for the very cool Magic Locker plugin is now live at just $12.50 for the first 25 copies.

Buy now

***

Today, Thursday 14th November at 6.00pm GMT (1.00pm EDT) I’m releasing a plugin called Magic Locker.

The idea with this plugin is you let readers view MOST of your content on a page or post but withhold some of it until they share or like the page on a social network.

This will generate MORE traffic, MORE subscribers and MORE customers.

That’s the basis of it, but let’s look at this in more detail.

Some people won’t like what you’ve done and won’t share your page if they don’t know part of what it is that they’re sharing.

So why not give them some alternatives?

There are some built into Magic Locker that should satisfy everybody.

You can optionally make them wait a number of seconds you define and the content will reveal itself.

Or you can tell them that if they become a WP subscriber then all content on your site will be unlocked. If you have a membership plugin then you could get them to join the membership and with most membership plugins it also makes them WP subscribers too.

And here’s something I’m going to be doing myself. Wait for it…

If you have something to sell, then give people a choice to get it for less IF they’ll share the page.

So put your product up with a buy button for say $27, and tell your visitors they can get $10 off just for sharing the page. Then either put a second buy button or a discount code if your script supports it.

Cool idea eh? Watch me start using it on all my sites.

Giving people a simple either/or choice always works.

Those that don’t want to share it will pay the higher price – them’s your rules – and those that don’t mind will go ahead and share it and get the very nice discount thank you very much!

It’s a win-win either way, and we all like that don’t we?  😉

You can also lock all sorts of content, not just text. Images and videos can be locked too, as well as payment buttons and coupons. I have another idea that I need to test out first, and I’ll share it with you when I’m ready.

Magic Fonts Plugin for WordPress

Update: The sale for the super-duper Magic Fonts plugin is live at just $10.00.

Buy now

***

Included as part of this sale is full developer licence, and even BETTER a LIMITED RESALE RIGHTS licence too! That means YOU can sell the plugin and documentation, but your buyers can’t.

Including resale rights is an experiment because I like to try these things.  😉

Anyway…

This plugin hooks into the Google Web Fonts API and allows you to…

Display any of the 600+ Google Web Fonts
in your posts and pages.

AND it also gives you some pre-defined CSS styles to spruce your text up even further.

AND you can also still use the built in TinyMCE editor effects to add bold, italic, underline, change the font colours and so on.

The combination of the three means you can create some eye-popping text effects on your blogs to call attention to your special offers or other important content.

Okay I could explain this here all day, but the best thing to do is go look at the example page and the video that shows you how the plugin works.

You’re going to love it!  :-)

The sale starts today 7th November at 6.00pm GMT, and you can do one of two things.

#1 – Be one of the first 25 people to get the plugin at the starting price of $12.50.

#2Join the Plugin Great Membership and get AT LEAST two new plugins, themes or scripts every month for one fixed price that won’t hurt your pocket.
