DigWP Book Update

Attention proud owners of Digging Into WordPress! The book received a major update for WordPress 4.2, including a complete refresh of all resources and links. As with the previous 15 updates, version 4.2 is a free download for all Members of DigWP.com :)

Top 7 Contact Form Plugins

WinningWP posted on the top 7 contact form plugins, including the best free and premium plugins for front-end forms, contact forms, and everything in between. Great round-up of all the latest and greatest form plugins :)

Mashshare for Social SEO

I've been checking out Mashshare lately as a good social-media/share plugin. Besides delivering great features and a nice set of vector share buttons, Mashshare is lightweight and focused on performance. You can check it out at WordPress.org :)

Tools the Pros Use

Bauke Roesink rounds up 126 top designers and asks them which software they use for web and graphic design. Super informative article with lots of insight :)

Pile Gallery

Awesome new gallery plugin that enables grouped animated galleries based on categories and more. Sorta hard to explain but you can see how it works via the demo. DigWP people can save a few bucks on the personal or developer version.

WinningWP FTW

Just wanted to let everyone know about WinningWP and some of the great tips, tricks, and resources that they've been sharing for the past year. Definitely worth checking out if you're into WordPress and that sort of thing :)

User Submitted Posts – Pro Version

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.
