WPMUDEV recently sent me a reminder about a free plugin they offer: Custom Sidebars. It is available to download for free from WordPress.org. I wrote about this plugin back in 2014, but wanted to put it out there for those of you that are new to the Adult Blog Builder website. The plugin lets you display different content to different users in your sidebar and footers.
With Custom Sidebars you can create as many unique sidebar configurations for your site as needed – show one set of sidebars to first-time visitors and another to members, set up sidebars for specific pages or categories, or for special landing pages, you name it – and trigger them to display as needed.
With this plugin you can customize every widget area by setting new default sidebars for a group of posts or pages easily, keeping the chance of changing them individually.
For example, you can change…
Sidebars for all the posts that belong to a category.
Sidebars for all the posts that belong to a post-type.
Sidebars for archives (by category, post-type, author, tag).
Sidebars for the main blog page.
Sidebars for search results.
It’s a must-have plugin, especially if you’re running a membership site and want to personalize the browsing experience for new and returning visitors. WPMU-DEV also offers a pro version of the plugin that is included free with a WPMU-DEV membership.

If you move your WordPress website to a new domain name, you will find that internal links to pages and references to images are not updated. Instead, these links and references will point to your old domain name. The Velvet Blues Update URLS plugin fixes that problem by helping you change old urls and links in your website.
* Users can choose to update links embedded in content, excerpts, or custom fields
* Users can choose whether to update links for attachments
* View how many items were updated
Using this plugin is very simple. Once it has been activated, navigate to Tools -> Update URLs and follow the instructions. Get support for this plugin by going to the Velvet Blues Update URLs plugin page. Post all questions as comments.

I wish I’d paid attention to the ads for Ebates some time ago, because they are 100% legit. Create an account, click on STORES in the navigation bar up top of the page, pick the store you’re wanting to make a purchase at and it creates a purchase ticket. Shop at the store and pay for your purchases, and you’ll get no less than 1% CASH BACK. Ebates puts it into your PayPal account and you can spend it however you wish!
For Christmas I purchased a 32″ Smart Led TV for my roommate. Green Monday at Tiger Direct had the $279.99 TV with a $90 instant savings and free shipping. And if I used Visa checkout, I would get another $20 off of the purchase price. So I go to checkout and total price is now $169.99 and since I went to Ebates first and then to TigerDirect.com I’ll get a 2% rebate of $3.40. It also had a $30 rebate available, saving me even more! I figure when all was said and done, the 32″ $279.99 Smart TV cost me $136.50. And I didn’t have to stand in any lines to get it! $3.40 may not sound like much, but trust me, it adds up! And there are always Ebates deals at different stores offering 10%, 25% and more.
I have been buying stuff on Ebay, Amazon, Walmart, Target and Tiger Direct, just to name a few, for years and could of gotten hundreds of dollars back by now! Tip: Even if the store is just a few blocks away, check the online store first before pulling out the credit card! Items are often cheaper via online shopping! Case in point: a $900 50″ 4k Ultra HD Smart TV at Walmart that a friend was looking at just last week was $150 cheaper by purchasing it online. We went to Ebates, then clicked for Walmart, made the purchase and it was ready for pickup within 2 hours. With an additional savings of $10.50 in tax plus the $7.90 back from Ebates, she saved $168 dollars and some change …she couldn’t of been happier! I can’t wait to watch the Super Bowl on it!
And it’s not just the big name stores at Ebates! Check for those little known online shops at Ebates before making your purchase. I was delighted to find Restaurant.com (that was another whole batch of savings in gift certificates for relatives at Christmas) and my vitamin supplement store.
So the next time you’re planning a purchase online, be sure to grab that extra bit of savings by going to Ebates first!

Which WordPress themes are on sale? All of the Premium Press Themes are discounted when using Coupon Code: FEBSPECIAL2015
WOW! 30% discount off the original price. These themes aren’t just about a fancy design, as these themes let you build custom sites for specific purposes. There is a Coupon Code website, Directory website, Classifieds Theme, Shopping Cart theme, and a Real Estate theme. Now these can be adapted for a different product, but the foundation is already in place for you to get the theme installed and start setting up your website without having to do a lot of custom work and deal with a bunch of plugins to get the functionality you’ve been wanting.
Once you buy the theme, it is yours to use as many times as you wish. I’ve purchased their directory theme, and the staff has been top notch for support, plus there are some very clear, and detailed videos available to walk you through every step in getting your site set up. And if you still want or need help, there is a very active community forum on the Premium Press site. If you have been wanting an Adult directory, a main stream money maker, or just need a shopping cart site/program to sell DVDs or your grandma’s prized jam, now would be a great time to save some $$ to get that site up and running.
This Premium Press discount is valid from Jan 18th – Feb 28th 2015 and be sure to use Coupon Code: FEBSPECIAL2015

The bounce rate. You see this stat in Google Analytics, but what exactly does it mean? Well, it’s quite simple actually. It’s the percentage of people that come to your site and then navigate away from it after viewing only one page.
Every single time a visitor does this it increases your bounce rate, in turn affecting your search engine rankings a little bit. High bounce rates are bad, but you must understand that every industry has its own average benchmark for bounce rates, so sometimes comparing to other companies is not always the best thing.
Keeping your bounce rate down is all about testing and implementation. It’s definitely a trial and error process, but you shouldn’t let that discourage you. In fact, let that motivate you into pursuing ever greater heights with your website. It’s a New Year, so set yourself a goal and try to reach that goal by implementing a few of the tips outlined in an excellent article by Brenda Barron that I found over on the WooThemes website.
Brenda goes over some things I hadn’t even considered as being something that could affect how long a visitor stays on my sites. I’ve listed a few of the topics discussed in her Understanding Bounce Rate article.
Grab Those Accidental Visitors
Clean Up Those 404 Pages
Speed Up Your Site
Ensure That Content is Relevant
So check it out, and get to work on keeping those potential buyers on your sites just a little bit longer, or at least long enough to hit a link to go buy something!
