Hi Guys! I´ve been a developer focused in wordpress for the last 5 years and in that time I found myself having to code some plugins in order to get what i needed , usually because i couldn't simple find a plugin that did the same or because they were poorly coded or outdated.
I would like to share with you this plugins, two of them are free and one is a paid version.
1. Social Popup (free)
This plugin will display a popup or splash screen when a new user visit your site showing a Google+, twitter and facebook follow links. This will increase you followers ratio in a 40%. Popup will be close depending on your settings.
It comes with a ton of different options and display rules to show the popup to certain members or is certain pages.
The plugin is free and you can download it in http://wordpress.org/plugins/social-popup/
2. Twitter Like Box (free)
It simple display a box with a facebook like box style showing your followers. A cool feature is that you can also show the people you follow instead of your followers. It also includes a lot of options like enable/disable followers links, colors, etc.
You can include this on any place by using a shortcode or just using the simple sidebar widget.
You can download this free in http://wordpress.org/plugins/twitter-like-box-reloaded/
3. Wordpress Social Invitations
The little baby Im proud off. With this plugin your users will be able to invite their social friends to your site. Simple as that! Depending on the providers users will receive an email or a private message.
When a user clicks on one of the providers he will be prompted to choose some friends. Depending on your settings he will be able to write a message to the users or send a predefined one.
The widget can be inserted on any part of your site and it also come with a small sidebar widget.
Right now i am finishing the new version that i hope to release soon which comes with a lot of new features like :
- Template system
- Job queue manage by crons to proccess invitations in the background
- Complete redesign
- Better facebook invitation system using chat with a fallback to wall post
- SMTP settings
- etc, etc, etc
I have some other social projects in mind but haven't got a chance to start with them right now. What do you think? Are you already using any of my plugins?
