What is in WordPress Cron? Cron View shows you!

A simple plugin to look at the active WP-cron jobs, displaying the next due, schedule and the hook called. Easy & useful for developers playing with cron!

WP-Cron Control Settings

Take control of WP-Cron. Prevents missing scheduled posts, race conditions in WP-Cron and other cron issues by allowing you to setup a system cron.

Genesis theme framework

This Genesis Theme Review shows that Genesis is one of the most popular WordPress Theme Frameworks and there’s a good reason for that. I love the flexibility and quality of its code, which is why it gets a full 5 out of 5 stars.

gravity-forms-logo

Gravity Forms is easily the best forms plugin for WordPress, highly recommended!

promotion-slider-plugin

This plugin has some issues that need fixing but I like the overall architecture, if the issues get fixed it might become my slider plugin of choice.

FT-Calendar

It’s a pretty cool calendar plugin but there are a few things in there that really need to be fixed, both in the code and in the interface.

wp-smushit

Great plugin that should be a default install on every blog that uses images to optimize them.

WordPress FAQ manager

I could see myself use this plugin to manage my plugin FAQs, it’s a nice use of custom post types, but not until some of the issues have been fixed.

custom-post-widget

If you need editors to be able to edit the content of widgets, or just want to control the content in widgets more easily, this plugin is great.
