It has stayed true to its goal and continues to be an excellent way to process payments…
Simple Google Maps Shortcode plugin has new home with WebFactory
In October, 2012, I released a plugin called Simple Google Maps Shortcode. It was a very simple plugin that simply registered a shortcode that could be used to display a Google map of any address on a post or page. The plugin was simple, efficient, and did just the one thing very well. Overtime it grew to more than 10,000 active installs and is still actively used on thousands of sites. Today I’m happy to announce that the plugin has a new home and has been acquired by WebFactory.

WordPress Page builder plugins: a critical review
Page builders are everywhere and new ones are popping up every month. I have always had a strong dislike for page builder plugins as they frequently cause compatibility problems with other plugins. To ensure I wasn’t unjustly biased, I decided to review as many page builders as I could manage to determine if they are really all that bad.
AffiliateWP: two years later
Two years ago I wrote a post on this site to introduce my latest plugin, AffiliateWP. The plugin quickly became a staple in my company’s product portfolio and has done quite well for us. Today marks the second anniversary of our version 1.0 release so I would like to take a few minutes to look back on some of the highlights and the journey of building one of my most successful plugins.
Easy Content Types acquired by ThemeIsle

Today I’m thrilled to announce that the plugin has been acquired and is now under new management.
2015 year in review
Selling Easy Content Types
In early 2011 I released Easy Content Types, an advanced plugin that provides a graphical interface for creating post types, taxonomies, and metaboxes in WordPress. The plugin was originally released on Code Canyon.net and did quite well there. It was in the weekly top sellers nearly every week that it resided there. Then in February, 2013, the plugin was moved to this site and was one of the first plugins used to stock my own small plugin shop. Now, with some sadness and great happiness at the same time, it is time for Easy Content Types to find a new home.

Nikhil Vimal adopts Front End Registration and Login Forms plugin
Several years ago, I wrote a tutorial on how to create custom registration and log in forms. That tutorial was shortly after transformed into a complete plugin that has been sold on this site since. It was a fun and popular plugin but over the last few years it was lost focus from me, primarily due to the growth of my other projects. Today I’m thrilled to announce the plugin has a new owner that will keep it updated and breath new life into it.
