10 New Plugins for WordPress 3.0

WordPress Plugins

Meteor Slides

Meteor Slides makes it simple to manage a slide show with WordPress by adding a custom post type for slides. The slides are managed as featured images through the media library; they will automatically be cropped to the dimensions specified on the settings page. Optionally, each slide can link to any Post, Page, or external URL of your choice. Meteor Slides is easy to use, but the options should offer enough flexibility to use the slide show in many different ways.

Front-End Editor

A WordPress plugin that enables “edit in place” functionality on your website or blog. It lets you edit posts or pages directly from your website. No need to load the admin back-end just to correct a typo.

It gives me immense happiness to present to all my blog readers,  a brand new free WordPress theme called Businezz! As you can guess by its name, this is a business styled theme which can be used by anyone wishing to launch a company,corporate or business website/portfolio. Businezz sports a crisp design that will add value to any blog/website that implements it.

The theme comes with a ready-to-use homepage and a separate blog page for your posts. All the different segments of the home page have been designed keeping in mind how a company website should look. The home page can be easily set up from the theme options that have been integrated with the WordPress admin section.  For the blog, all you have to do is make a new page and choose its page template as the “blog template”.

20 Killer Image Sliders & Carousels

Whenever I am developing a new website or WordPress theme, I try and look for new kind of content sliders and carousel scripts (that can scroll images & HTML content). Over a period of time, I have bookmarked some efficient sliders that can also be easily integrated into WordPress if you have the skills. I am sure these will be helpful to both moderate and advanced developers alike. Here is the list :-

1. Sproing!

This is a lively script that make your images grow in size whenever someone hovers their cursor over the thumbnails.

2. Easy Slider JQuery Plugin

An easily configurable content slider plugin for JQuery that supports both horizontal and vertical scrolling. I have used this for my last Premium theme – Freedom.

3. Floom

This is the prettiest of them all! It uses Mootools to beautifully transition between images and overall a very cutting-edge image slider.

Freedom Premium Theme

This is a one of its kind Premium WordPress theme that comes with a revolutionary “Theme Maker” (Also known as a Color Scheme Generator). This allows you to create your own color schemes using three basic colors (primary, secondary & tertiary).

If you have observed carefully, most well-designed websites comprise of 3 major colors that define the total look of the website. You can choose your own colors or just choose from 24 ready-made color schemes provided in the theme options panel.
