Plugin Of The Week:

Jeff – Quick Configuration Links For Plugins – It’s a plugin that will scan the WordPress menu structure and attempt to locate the configuration page for each of the active plugins, and add a “Settings” link to the plugin’s row – right besides the “Deactivate” and “Edit” links. The plugin is also smart enough to skip this for plugins that have already added the configuration link on their own (in most cases).

Keith – WordPress Mobile Edition – Slim down your site for WAP browsers.
