Private Label Rights - $47



Starting today at 6.00pm GMT (1.00pm EST), I’m running the second in a series of Flash Sales for one of my nicest “work horse” plugins for WordPress.Β  PLUS a bonus plugin.

Included in this sale are full developer (client/flipper) licences for both plugins at just $10.

As an *experiment*, I’m also offering Private Label Rights for it at $47, and because I have virtually NO restrictions on my PLR licencing (NO minimum price – you can GIVE IT AWAY as a list builder if you wish), you shouldn’t have any problems rebranding and reselling it.

Read on and/or watch this 3 minute video to see how “Widgets In It” works.

I’ve been asked on many occasions by people who didn’t know I’d created this particular plugin – I should have known it would be popular – and it’s now part of what I think of as my “control” plugins.

“Widgets In It” allows you to insert ANY WIDGET in any POST or PAGE, not just in the sidebars.

Once activated, you see a new widgetised area on your “Widgets” page in the admin panel. Drop any widgets you like into this sidebar and save.

Then go to a page or post and you’ll see a new drop-down in the TinyMCE editor called “Widgets In It” where you can select any of the widgets you’ve placed in the widgetised area.

Hey presto! Widgets on your posts and pages. πŸ˜‰

Clearly this is something a lot of people want to be able to do, as widgets aren’t just useful in the regular widgetised areas – it’s nice to be able to show them within content too.

For example a special widget or an ad block.

In addition to “Widgets In It”, I’m also including a bonus plugin that I give away with my themes called Ads Manager.

Ads Manager allows you to display ads and other text and HTML in widgets depending on a HUGE selection of rules you can set, giving you an extra layer of control you don’t normally get.

Why?Β  Well contrary to popular belief you don’t always want your ads to show on all pages and posts simply because:-

a) Your regular blog visitors will get annoyed (I always do).
b) Ad blindness will kick in, rendering all your ads useless.

With Ads Manager you can specify that the content of the widget will show only when certain conditions are met. These are:-

  • When the visitor comes from a search engine.
  • The post is more than 2 weeks old.
  • The visitor is not a regular reader (3 visits in the past 2 weeks)
  • Rules set by the WordPress Conditional Tags System.

That last one is a little cracker. It directly utilises the built in WordPress Conditional Tags System that normally only a programmer would have access to so that you can create your own rules as to when the widget will show.

All of the above conditions can be used in conjunction with each other, but you *do* have to be a little careful not to create rules that exclude the widget content altogether. πŸ˜‰

This now means that when you use both Ads Manager and Widgets In It together, you have ultimate flexibility and control over your widget content by using these two plugins in combination.

To recap…

o Widgets In It allows you to place widgets inside your posts and pages.
o Ads Manager replaces standard text widgets with a rules based system.

The sale goes live today at 6.00pm GMT (1.00pm EST).

Slide Out Tabs

Update: The sale for one of my personal favourites, the Slide Out Tabs plugin is now live at just $17.00 but is just about to rise to $27.

Buy now


About 18 months ago I released an absolutely brilliant (ahem) plugin called Slide Out Tabs.

To date there still isn’t a plugin or script that comes even close to what it can do, and we created it following a customer request.


Slide Out Tabs

What they asked for was a plugin which added a set of 3 slim tabs to the right and left of the page which when hovered over would slide out onto the page but stay in place when the page was scrolled up and down.

We were also asked if the Slide Out Tabs could contain any HTML so that videos, optin forms, images etc could be added to the page.

Yes okay, BUT…

Me being me, I took it even further than that.Β  πŸ˜‰

Multiple Slide Out Tabs


Instead of limiting it to only three tabs left and right, I had it built so that you could use as many tabs as you could fit on the page, and place them exactly where you wanted them.

Then we hooked up the whole thing to the WP widgetised areas system too.

Think sidebars!

What that means is when you create a new slide out tab, then the plugin ALSO creates a brand new widgetised area for you on the fly!Β  WOW!

Then all you have to do is drop ANY widget into the widgetised area and it will appear in your new slide out tab.

This means you can insert HTML via a text widget, a menu, a sign up box, in fact ANYTHING you have a widget for, you can now insert into the slide-out.

I hope you can see how powerful that makes this plugin.

In theory at least, you could use a theme without a sidebar on the home page and instead use slide-out tabs.

Now while that’s very cool, it gets even BETTER than that!

We also included the WordPress Conditional Tags system.

Conditional tags are built right into the WordPress core but they’re usually only used by developers. The Slide Out tabs plugin enables you to use those conditional tags without knowing the inner workings of WordPress or even any PHP at all.

If you can look them up and copy and paste, you’re away.Β  πŸ˜‰

What it means to you is you can now use this built in WordPress rules system to specify that a tab will only show on the home page, or only on pages or posts or even on particular pages and posts.

And because you have full control over the position and size of the tabs and slide out areas, you can stack tabs in the same position on a page, but show different tabs depending on where the visitor is reading your blog.

I think that’s one of the COOLEST things ever.Β  πŸ˜‰

For 24 hours in this Flash sale, you can pick it up at just $10, starting today at 7.00pm GMT (1.00pm EST). After that the price will rise to $17 for another 24 hours and then finally to $27 after that.

Worth every penny.

During this sale, the plugin also comes with a full developer (client/flipper) licence, allowing you to install on clients blogs and also on blogs you intend to flip.

This is DEFINITELY one you don’t want to miss.Β  There isn’t a plugin or script that comes anywhere near to the capabilities of the Slide Out Tabs plugin.

PopScroll Plugin

Update: The sale for the nice and useful PopScroll plugin is now live at just $10.00 for the first 36 hours.

It will then rise to $12.50 for the duration of the sale.

Buy now


In this sale only it includes full developer (client/flipper) licences, plus a RESALE RIGHTS licence. This additional licencing will be removed when the sale is over and will be an optional purchase.


Call Attention To Memberships, Reviews, Affiliate Schemes, Whatever You Want…

The story behind this plugin is I wanted something that would easily allow me to add a simple alert when a visitor scrolled down the page, and that would point them in the direction of the affiliate program for a site I’m working on. And I wanted it to work on only certain pages.



The plugin that now does that has actually ended up being a lot bigger than my first simple requirement.Β  πŸ˜‰

You can now:-

  • Create as many alerts as you want
  • Set border styles and colours
  • Set background styles and colours
  • Include images (calls to action)
  • Set alerts to trigger globally
  • Set alerts to trigger on posts
  • Set alerts to trigger on pages
  • Set alerts to trigger on special pages
  • Set individual alerts for posts and page
  • Disable alerts for individual posts and pages



It’s now tremendously useful – far more than I needed – and I’m very pleased with it.

You can also get as much fun out of it as I am in this sale today.

For example you can use it to highlight a new daily offer, or direct people to another site, or a product review, or a payment link, or…

Whatever.Β  πŸ˜‰

As I said, in my case I wanted to highlight the affiliate scheme for a site, but of course the PopScroll plugin will do a whole lot more than that.

The sale starts today Friday 7th at 6.00pm GMT (1.00pm EST) at just $10 including the additional licencing for the first 36 hours. The price will then go up.
