    FYI: “Private Only” states it is good only up to WP v. 2.6

    The WP-Notes plugin is awesome. Works like a charm.

    Thank you so much! You wouldn’t believe how much of a lifesaver the menu reordering plugin is! I was doing hardcoding into my templates which defeated the purpose of the good ol’ CMS idea. Thanks again.

    I am hugely reliant on Redirection. I constantly want to change my post slug because I think of a snappier post title and this little baby lets me do it without breaking my social bookmarks.

    @Geakz, Private Only tested with WordPress 2.7, the plugin is working. The information will get update soon.

    Thank you

    I recently downloaded the latest version of WP and it’s super but I am unable to install one plug-in because I need my API key. I tried to access this but it says my PW in invalid. How do I remedy this problem? Any assistance will be greatly appreciated and the sooner the better. Thanks in advance!
