Plugins to Die For
September 26, 2009 — Writings
This is just a quick post to share with all of my fellow WordPress enthusiasts at WordCamp Birmingham today, some of the plugins that I talked about in my presentation just a few moments ago. I will give a more in depth report of the entire event after I have had time to fully absorb it all.
The first plugin that we talked about is the best, free contact forms plugin available. It’s easy to use, and offers more functionality than you can shake a stick at! CformsII
My friend, Mitch Canter got to first introduce Flutter to you, and then I was able to back it up with a more in depth way to put it into use. Don’t worry, a full blog post is coming soon that will cover each step to use Flutter for our coveted “post types” we requested from Matt during the lunch keynote. Flutter
Finally I was able to zoom through an awesome plugin that lets you build custom Google maps right from your write post/page in the WordPress dashboard and then insert those maps with a simple click of a button with flawless integration into the published post/page. It even gives you the ability to search for directions right on the same page, without having to leave your website. MapPress
In case you’re interested, the website I was referring to a lot isn’t in my portfolio yet since we literally launched it live just this past week. It is Pasadena Symphony & Pops.
