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. This plugin is different from other custom panel plugins because you can store your data either in WordPress Custom Fields, or in your custom table that it will create for your. It also provides an HTML snippet tool which allows you to insert data into pages or posts using shortcodes and without having to modify templates.
