Insert Pages

The Lowdown:
This plugin make the chore of adding page content into page content an easy task. Although I did find a couple limitations on what I was trying to accomplish. I wanted to display the new contest in a wrap for the regular site but was unable to do that. do to the type of custom content in this custom post type. Other than that issue this plugin seems to work pretty well for including content from other posts into a new page.
Rating 4 Dragons

menu shortcode

The Lowdown:
This plugin is a simple way to be able to include a menu in area that otherwise do not allow for a menu, the caveat is that it does not always work. I had tried this in the hopes it would solve an issue for me on a project but unfortunately found out the area I wanted to put it into do not execute short codes. It does work find wherever you can execute a short code and makes placing menus an easy task. If you are inclined you can even add some customization’s to the menu and tweak the CSS to your liking.

Archive Control

Sent in by Jess Sutherland
The Lowdown:
This plugin will allow you to customize your archive listing by modifying your Archive title, adding a featured image, including content before the list or after the list. You can also change the order of display and include pagination, adjust the terms and more. This plugin performs pretty well and can help you do some organization to your categories and custom post types archive display page.

Dan’s Embedder for Google Calendar

Dan’s Embedder for Google Calendar was created out of a need to display Google calendars in both list and full view in a way that was mobile friendly, customizable via shortcode, and easy to style. No need to import events or manage them directly in WordPress. All you need is a public Google Calendar (or multiple!) and a free, easy to get API key.
