WordPress Plugin Releases for 5/7

WordPress Plugins

Google Maps

The Google Maps plugin allows you to easily insert Google maps into your blog, making use of the new shortCode system in WordPress 2.5. The maps can be configured to offer directions to or from the location, show or hide the zoom/pan controls, show/hide map type, activate zoom using mouse wheel. This plugin requires a API key from Google Maps.


Tw-asides is an asides widget for WordPress. It lets you publish short posts that appear in your sidebar rather than in the main content column. Asides posts won’t appear in your main content stream, whether it’s on the front page of your blog or when navigating via the next/previous post links.


WP-Crontrol is a plugin that lets you manage the WP-Cron system and see what’s going on there. This includes adding/editing/deleting cron entries, as well as cron schedules.

Random Featured Post

The Random Featured Post plugin allows you to display a random post from one or more designated categories. The featured post will display the title “Featured Post” which is customizable along with the post’s title and content or an excerpt with link to full post.


WP-Offload will boost the performance of your blog by seamlessly offloading static content like images, documents and movies. This will greatly reduce bandwidth consumption and the number of HTTP requests issued to your web server. Additional features such as remote image manipulation and thumbnail generation are provided.

Google XML Sitemaps with Multiple Domains

This plugin is a solution for those running both the Domain Mirror and the Google (XML) Sitemaps Generator plugins together in WordPress.  The plugin extends Google (XML) Sitemaps so that it creates one sitemap for each mirror set up in Domain Mirror.  Sitemaps are created with the mirror URL prepended to the custom filename.

BT Active Discussions

This is a recent comments plugin that displays customizable number of blog posts with recently updated comment. The output is very similar to phpBB’s View Active Topics and vBulletin’s Today’s Posts functions.

    I’m going to have to check out the Google maps plug in. That will be helpful especially for sites commenting on local business.
