M3talinks for Apr 6th

Today’s M3talinks for Apr 6th

  • VoucherPress – a WordPress plugin for creating downloadable, printable vouchers – stillbreathing.co.uk – website design and development – VoucherPress is a WordPress plugin that allows you to give downloadable, printable vouchers in PDF format away on your site. Download the VoucherPress plugin here.<br />
    <br />
    Have you ever wanted to give away vouchers or tokens on your website? If so this plugin is for you. You can create a voucher with whatever text you want, choosing the layout and font from a range of templates (you can also add your own templates). Vouchers can then be viewed, downloaded and printed from a specified URL.<br />
    <br />
    There are shortcodes to add a link to a particular voucher, or to show an unordered list of all your vouchers.<br />
    <br />
    You can require visitors to provide their name and email address to get a voucher. If an email address is required an email is sent to the address with a link to the voucher URL. Each voucher has a unique code, and vouchers that have an email address associated with them can only be used once, so once a registration-required voucher is downloaded it can’t be downloaded again.
