Plugin Picks Of The Week:

JeffSupple forms – Supple Forms is a CMS plugin for WordPress that lets you easily add a custom write panel or meta box to the Write Post/Write Page screen. It differs from other custom write panel plugins in that you can store your data in either WordPress Custom Fields or your own custom table that the plugin will create for you. Additionally, it provides a powerful HTML snippet tool that lets you format and insert your data into pages and posts with shortcodes, and without tweaking templates.
