2 WordPress Plugins For Your Website


Despite the content needed for a website what other parts should be considered for a website to make it look good?  

Plugins and widgets, social media links, and much more.

When I visit other websites; the social media plugins/widgets always catch my eye.  If any one thing to make your site look good these are it.

After much time looking around the WordPress plugins site - I came across one that was 'the one' and became 'the one'.  Metro Style Social Widget  having the look of  Windows 8 and metro style made it even more enticing.  

When I first uploaded the plugin, the Metro Style Social Widget it wasn't allowing me to adjust the width and height properly.  I contacted the developer, Manivannan (HowOpenSource) and within moments he contacted me and was able to solve it; sending a new update.  Since then I haven't had any issues and he has made a couple of great upgrades to it.  One recently, the RSS feed url has been fixed to work better.

A few weeks later, he contacted me about his latest plugin (Google+ Badge Widget) and asked me to test it out.  Uploaded, activated it and works great.  It works better than the old Google+ Plugin that came out when Google+ first became available.

Take a few moments and check these two plugins/widgets out - see what you think and even consider using them yourself or for a client.
