Tomorrow Saturday 11th at 6.00pm GMT I’m releasing a new plugin called Magic Pages.

It allows you to very quickly create easy-format sales and opt-in pages with a choice of background colours and a few different page border styles.

SIMPLE stuff, but it’s really quite good.

It has a number of very cool little features, and addons:-

  • 5 box-outs in pastel colours with 2 border styles
  • 2 new list styles – drawn star and drawn arrow
  • 8 different coloured clickable buttons
  • Buttons expand to accomodate the text
  • Page border shadow options
  • Page widths as a percentage (fluid!)
  • Colour pickers all over the place
  • Numerous text boxes
  • Auto-parsing of opt-in form code
  • And some other stuff

 

Here’s a screen shot of the box selector:-

And the button selector:-

A quick side note…

A few weeks ago I released a plugin called Magic Styles which was exactly as popular as I thought it would be.

That plugin gives you a number of useful additions to enhance your pages and posts such as graphical bullets and buttons, fixed size johnson boxes and pastel shaded notices.

You can still pick up a copy here if you missed it as there are a few remaining at $17.

But now it’s the turn of the Magic Pages plugin.

I had this plugin created for 2 reasons.

#1 – I’ve wanted something fairly quick and easy to use like this for my own personal needs for a while now – it HAD to be fast and easy. That was my #1 priority.

(And I also wanted to be able to use it with plugins like Magic Styles and Big Ed so that I could add nicely formatted text and box outs and bullets.)

#2 – I was genuinely surprised when I had some people say that 60SSP (based around the Page Template Plugin) was too complicated and was overkill for what they needed.

They wanted the same simple method of putting up a page that I’d secretly been wanting too.  😉

And so we have Magic Pages.

It allows you to create sales and opt-in pages without being too technical and lets you do things like choose a nice border style and background colour (picker) and optionally add a graphical headline banner.

The banner graphic was THE most asked about thing with 60SSP.

“How do I remove the headline and add a banner instead?” was a question I answered over and over.

I guess I shouldn’t have been as surprised as I was. I felt like I’d been caught on the hop and should have foreseen what people would want even though I wasn’t too bothered about it myself at the time.

With Magic Pages you can just insert your banner via the normal WordPress media library.

SORTED.  :-)

You can see a couple of example pages here and here.

The sale kicks off tomorrow Saturday 10th May at 6.00pm GMT (1.00pm EST) with the first 25 copies going at $10.

More news when it happens.

P.S. I’m hoping that the Amazon S3 Video plugin will be ready very shortly for those that are waiting. I’m sorry about the delay.
