Updated plugins

BuddyPress lets users register on your site and start creating profiles, posting messages, making connections, creating and interacting in groups and much more. It’s a social network in a box.

Viper’s Video Quicktags allows you to simply click one of the new buttons that this plugin adds to the write screen (rich editor included) and then paste the URL that the video is located at into the prompt box. You can fully configure how the videos are displayed and much more.

    The description of the Watu plugin on the linked page is a little confusing. What does it do? Exams or ad-managing?

      I did find that rather confusing. It’s definitely a plugin designed for testing and exams, so I’m not really sure where the ad angle is coming from.

    The Urtak plugin looks interesting to me. I’ve always kind of wondered what people are thinking when they read my stuff online. I try to guess, but a guess is not even close to actually getting real feedback. I’ll have to check that out.

    I got the it either, maybe you’re supposed to have your visitors to grade your site or campaign if they were brought to your site by displaying ads somewhere else.

    I like the idea of the Watu plugin for exams, questions and grades, I am putting together some online courses and online learning resources using wordpress so I will definitely look into this.
