cForms II cForms II is a nice blend of drag and drop design with parametric design.  You can assign a very good range of values to various field and form design parameters including the ability to assign variable information such as user name, form name, and email to any field’s default value.  There is a good selection of validation checks and layout parameters.  cForms II also has a limited drag and drop capability for designing the form, which from what I can tell, is limited to changing the order of the fields presented on the form. Another nice thing about…

Custom Contact Forms The Custom Contact Forms plugin has a lot of settings for you to modify.  It is a very parametric driven forms generator with no drag and drop that I could find.  It does appear to allow you control over just about every aspect of the forms appearance, and for those of you familiar with databases, allows you to create fields in a somewhat familiar way.  On thing I could not find in terms of features is the ability to use variables for field defaults.  For example, if there is a field on the form called email where…

Form 7 This is an extremely popular forms plugin for WordPress, so I thought I would give it a try.  The thing is, my initial impression was so bad that I really didn’t delve into it very deep.  I was looking for a plugin that could be used by casual WordPress administrators; unfortunately Form 7 was just not it.  First, compared to other form software out there, Form 7’s interface was very clunky.  It is not graphical, and I really didn’t find it intuitive.  The image shows you what the default form is that comes up along with a partial…

Ok, Microsoft has two major mail clients – the kind that you run in Windows rather than access from the web using a browser.  I’ve often wondered if the free mail client that comes with Windows Live services, Windows Live Mail (WLM), could replace the onerous Outlook Mail that comes with Microsoft Office. Bottom line:  Yes, I think that for quite a few people the Windows Live Mail client will do just awesome.  But there are differences between the clients, and Outlook is definitely more powerful, so you will have to look at your situation.  Here’s what some of the…

Here’s a list of my favorite WordPress Plugins that I use in my Web Marketing Business. Plugin Comment Quick Page/Post Redirect Great little plugin that makes it very simple to manage redirections… much simpler than going the DNS and making the changes there. Category Checklist Tree Fixes the annoying behavior of WordPress breaking the category tree hiearchy window when a post/page is assigned to a category. Map Categories to Pages Allows pages tto be assigned to categories in the same way that posts are assigned to categories.  

The Mailchimp auto-responder will work with Income Infuser, but it has to have a specific configuration.  For the most part everything works just fine between the two of them if you just pay attention to the naming of the variables and understand the way MailChimp treats variables.  First, MailChimp delimits field names with special character sequences as do all auto-responders.  Mail chimp uses the *| sequence to start a field, and |* to end a field.  Thus the email field is *|EMAIL|* and the first name field is *|FNAME|*.  There is a full list of the field codes on the…

There is a step during the installation where you have to extract the Income Infuser ver x.x file on your server. There are a couple of things to note here: The Income Infuser zip file should be placed into the root folder of the domain you are installing it on.  For example, if your domain is FastCash.com then you should place the install zip file into the directory that is pointed to by FastCash.com. When the extraction runs it will automatically create a folder called "go" and place all the files into that folder – with the exception noted below….

I use Windows Live to manage the email for my domain, NormSash.com.  But one day after making some DNS changes I noticed the warning Service Suspended in my Live Domain Admin screen.   I modified the DNS MX records per the instructions at Windows Live Help, but when I perform a DNS lookup for the MX records I see the proper values returned. All the help requests to Windows Live Help simply said to configure the DNS MX records per the instructions… um, thanks, but that isn’t much help. Ok, this is getting frustrating and I’m not getting any help telling…

I was having problems with Windows Live Writer being able to update the theme.  I tried almost everything I could think of: changing to/from static pages, performing a quick post then immediate update, deleting the account and setting it up again, etc.   Nothing I tried seemed to work. As I ware browsing the internet for solutions one of the articles from Microsoft caught my attention.  In it was this little verbiage (full link to this problem is via the title link below): The theme used for editing your blog posts could not be downloaded When you click Refresh theme on…
