New WordPress Plugins Weekly Roundup – 23 July 2017

Here’s my selection of the most interesting new plugins from those released on WordPress.org this week.

Unless stated otherwise, I’ve not tested these, but am just highlighting those that stood out to me as being most interesting.

New Plugin Releases

Woo Domain Coupons

By Two Row Studio
It extends the coupon features of WooCommerce by allowing you to restrict their use to customers with emails of specific domains. Could be useful if offering a deal to all employees of a company.

This plugin is intended to help store owners choose what elements are displayed on their product pages without any need to edit theme files.

By Codetic
I’ve always got a soft spot for Elementor and related plugins. This adds some new widgets to the free version including a countdown timer.

Discussions Tab for WooCommerce Products

https://wordpress.org/plugins/discussions-tab-for-woocommerce-products/
By Algoritmika Ltd
This adds a new discussion tab to WooCommerce pages. This can be used to allow customers to ask questions, similar to the feature you find on Amazon.

Product Display for Magento

https://wordpress.org/plugins/product-display-for-magento/
By That Software Guy
For Magento store owners, this provides an easy way to display products in a WordPress blog.

GamiPress

https://wordpress.org/plugins/gamipress/
By Tsunoa
Gamification may not be the buzz word it was, but it’s still a powerful technique for increasing engagement. This new plugin claims to be super flexible and make it easy to set up.

Apptuse

https://wordpress.org/plugins/apptuse/
By Apptuse Developer
If you’d like your WooCommerce store converted into a mobile app, that’s basically what this will do for you. There’s a monthly fee to use the service this connects to.

FOOD or Product Menu for WooCommerce

https://wordpress.org/plugins/food-product-menu/
By Saiful Islam
This plugin can be used to display your WooCommerce products in a collapsible list on one page. Appears to have been driven by need to display food menus, but could work for stores with smallish inventories.

MARKETEER

https://wordpress.org/plugins/marketeer/
By Marketeerlab
The rise of the bots continues. This plugin connects your WordPress site to the marketeer service.

Breeze – WordPress Cache Plugin

https://wordpress.org/plugins/breeze/
By Cloudways
With so many caching plugins already available and several big name ones, I wouldn’t normally mention a new entry. However this plugin has been created by Cloudways, so I think this may be worth a look. They claim you can use it with no configuration, but also has advanced features.

 

That’s the end of this week’s roundup. Please let me know if you’re going to give any of these new plugins a try.
