After months of development, the premium version of my free User Submitted Posts plugin is finally available. It’s got hundreds of features and makes it easy to create unlimited front-end forms. Create customized forms for front-end post-submission, user-registration, contact forms, forum topics, and even art-directed content. On one site, I use USP Pro to replace FIVE other plugins. Learn more at Plugin Planet.

I found this infographic from WPtemplate.com very useful while writing my latest book. The infographic rounds up a collection of popular premium themes along with their various features and informations. Very interesting to see what’s popular in the premium WP theme market.
