The internet, and more so WordPress, is swarming with spammers who are dying to get their hands on your servers. Registering an account on your site is a relatively easy way for amateur spammers to brake into your system and use it as part of their spamming strategy.
Whether human or bot machines, spammers would normally be using an email spam domain, therefore we cannot stress enough the importance of identifying those domains and blocking them in advance, which is relatively easy to do. If they catch you unprepared though, they can cause serious damage to your site.
There are many good reporting tools that can measure your site’s performance and traffic, the WordPress custom reports plugin focuses primarily on the performance of your team, and the content flow within your WordPress site.
The plugin is an internal inspection and auditing tool to help you and your employees or partners work more efficiently and measure the flow of your data. It can also teach you a great deal about you and your team working habits and how they can be changed to save precious time.
Since then, we have made endless updates to the plugin, constantly adding new features and options which made it our most popular and best-selling plugin so far.
This morning, as I was browsing through my Linkedin feed, I came across a rather surprising question, posted on a large WordPress developers group.
At first it seemed like a trivial question, but having taken a moment of thought, I realized there was actually no definite answer, and became curious to see what responses people come up with.
As WordPress users, we understand just how frustrating it can be when you’ve downloaded or purchased a plugin and you’re keen to use it, but can’t seem to figure out how!
As WordPress plugin developers, we also understand just how easy it is to assume that everybody understands things like html, Ajax, and other commonly used web tools, when in fact, that knowledge is only reserved for some of our users, but certainly not all of them.
The CM Tooltip plugin was one of the earliest WordPress plugins ever developed by CreativeMinds, and the most successful one too. It began as a very simple plugin, containing the tooltips, the term pages and the glossary index, which allowed for a very basic infrastructure upon which users could build their site or blog’s glossary.
Over time, more and more functions were gradually added to the plugin, enhancing it with more parsing and filtering options, external API integration (Merriam-Webster, Google Translate, Wikipedia, Amazon), and more.
If you’re a WordPress blogger and you have files offered for download on your site, this post is for you!
Offering one or two files for download on your site can easily be tackled by adding links to files stored on an external server such as Dropbox or google drive.
But if you have a large amount of files you want people to download, such as media files, pdf’s and zip files, or if you seek to sell downloads and present them professionally, using an external storage service can be quite difficult to to track, and might give out the wrong impression.
The easy digital downloads plugin provides an easy way for publishers, software developers, musicians, graphic designers and film makers to sell their creative work on WordPress.
CreativeMinds has coupled with the developers of the Easy digital downloads plugin to enhance the shopping experience when using the EDD platform, boosting it with powerful features such as GA Ecommerce tracking reports and additional checkout options.
The tutorial video bellow covers the glossary remote import add-on, which is a great addition to our already-powerful CM Tooltip glossary plugin.
This add-on allows you to have a constantly updated database of your site’s glossary, which you can easily export, transfer and merge with other glossaries on different WordPress sites.
Enhancing your WordPress SEO is a tricky task, which can be addressed in many different ways. Although the CM Tooltip plugin is not primarily defined as a WordPress SEO plugin, it’s pro, pro+ and eCommerce editions can most certainly be used as traffic and SEO boosters, particularly on the link building front.
The CreativeMinds team has been developing a new and exciting WordPress help desk plugin which is soon to be released, called the CM On-boarding plugin.
This newly launched product allows you to create content which is quickly accessible using a widget from a single page or post, sparing users from the need to navigate and move through different pages on your site.
In the video below, we are going to do a very simple and quick tutorial of CM tooltip- our WordPress dictionary plugin. This plugin makes creating a glossary on your WordPress site very easy.
When users hover over a term in your site’s glossary its definition will appear underneath in the tooltip. Some of the other functionalities that come along with the plugin are a glossary index page as well as separate unique term pages for each term in your glossary.

In this video we are discussing the Download Manager Micropayment integration, which adds a virtual currency layer to your WordPress Downloads Directory infrastructure.
This means that when a user downloads or uploads a file, such as a music file or software zip file, they will be charged a specific amount of points that will be deducted from their virtual wallet.
