Lightbox Plus WordPress Plugin video guide

The other day I ran across what is probably the best video guide to learn how to use Lightbox Plus ColorBox and easily add fancy light box photo effects to your WordPress site. I wish I could say that I created it, but frankly writing tutorials, guides and documentation is not my forte.

The author of this excellent guide is Philip Gledhill and he does an brilliant job covering all aspects of Lightbox Plus ColorBox.  The tutorial is available on Philip’s site as Lightbox Plus WordPress Plugin video guide. If you are trying to get a better understanding of how to use Lightbox Plus ColorBox I can’t recommend his guide enough!

HubSpot for Gravity Forms Add-On

gf hubspot 150x150 HubSpot for Gravity Forms Add On

Gravity Forms HubSpot Add-On

I just released a new plugin that is an add-on for Gravity Form which allows leads generated in Gravity Forms to be fed into HubSpot.  The Gravity Forms HubSpot add-on let’s you use the HubSpot Lead API to send your Gravity Forms based landing page leads directly to HubSpot. All you need to do is add one setting and check a box when configuring your forms.  All your form entries will then be added to HubSpot from now on. Integrating with HubSpot has never been so simple.

You can grab the plugin right here:
