WordPress Plugin: User Submitted Posts
User Submitted Posts lets your visitors submit posts and images from anywhere on your site and from anywhere on the page. User-submitted posts optionally include tags, categories, post title, and author name & URL. Submitted-post status can be set to draft, publish immediately, or publish after some number of approved posts. User Submitted Posts (USP) also handles multiple image uploads, custom URL redirects, and much more. And the easy USP Settings Page makes setting up and fine-tuning a breeze.

Let your visitors submit contentUser Submitted Posts makes it easy to display a public post-submission form virtually anywhere on your site. Use the USP shortcode to display the submission form in any post or page, or use the USP template tag to include the form anywhere in your theme design. Visitors may then use the form to submit posts to your site. Depending on your preferences, user-submitted posts may include the following input fields:
Author NameAuthor URLPost TitlePost TagsPost CategoryPost ContentImage upload(s)Using the Settings Page, you choose which fields to display, min/max number of images, min/max image size, redirect location, error messages and more. User Submitted Posts makes it easy to setup just about any type of user-submitted functionality for your WordPress-powered site. Here are some examples of how the USP plugin could be used:
Public Submit a Link form with tagsSimple Submit News form with post, title & authorUse as Contact Form that allows image attachmentsUse as an Image Uploader, maybe with tags, title or whateverOnce a user has submitted a post, it’s saved as a “Draft” by default, but may optionally be set to “Publish Immediately” or even to publish if the author has “x” number of approved submissions. The plugin also displays a User Submitted Posts button at the top of the Posts Page that lets you filter all user-submitted posts/drafts with the click of a button.

To change the width, do the following:Open the CSS file: /resources/user-submitted-posts.cssEdit the first rule block with the desired width, like so:div#usp { width: 300px; } /* <- CHANGE FORM WIDTH */All other styles are relative to that width, so no other changes should be required (continue reading for more info about styling the form)USP Template TagsThe User Submitted Posts plugin provides several additional template tags for greater flexibility.
Display image attachments for submitted postsThis template tag displays the images attached to user-submitted posts:
<?php post_attachments(); ?>The post_attachments template tag prints the URLs for the specified image attachments. It accepts the following parameters:
<?php post_attachments($size, $beforeUrl, $afterUrl, $numberImages, $postId); ?>

$size = image size as thumbnail, medium, large or full -> default = full
$beforeUrl = text/markup displayed before the image URL -> default = <img src="
$afterUrl = text/markup displayed after the image URL -> default = " />
$numberImages = the number of images to display for each post -> default = false (display all)
$postId = an optional post ID to use -> default = uses global postReturn an array of attached imagesThis template tag returns an array of URLs for the specified post image:
<?php get_post_images(); ?>Check if a post is a public submissionThis template tag returns a boolean value indicating whether the specified post is a public submission:
<?php is_public_submission(); ?>Styling the Submission FormBy default a CSS file is included with the submission form. It includes some basic styles for uniform structural and font display, but you will probably want to customize the look and feel of the form by adding a few styles of your own. The stylesheet includes all available selectors and is located in the following directory:
/user-submitted-posts/resources/user-submitted-posts.css
jQuery/JavaScriptAlong with the stylesheet, an external JavaScript file is included on any page that displays the submission form. This file is located in the following directory:
/user-submitted-posts/resources/user-submitted-posts.js
By default, this file contains only a jQuery snippet for multiple image uploads. If you are customizing the form with additional jQuery/JavaScript, this is a convenient place to do so.

Is It Compatible? Shows If Your Current Extensions Are Upgrade Safe [Downloads]
Firefox: Every new version of Firefox offers enticing new features, but the real question is whether or not your beloved Firefox extensions are ready for the jump. Is It Compatible? puts the compatibility information right in your add-ons window.
There isn't much more to this handy little extension; once you install Is It Compatible? whenever you open the add-ons window in Firefox—as seen above in the screenshot—you'll see not only the extensions you have installed but also the versions of Firefox they are rated for displayed in a minimum-maximum format.

If you only have one or two critical Firefox extensions you rely on, it probably isn't much of a hassle to visit Mozilla and confirm their compatibility. With more than a few extensions however, Is It Compatible? makes a tedious process as simple as scrolling down your extension list.

Is It Compatible? is a free extension and works wherever Firefox does. Have a favorite tool for keeping Firefox in top shape? Let's hear about it in the comments.

TotalFinder Adds Tabs, Hotkeys, and Other Tweaks to OS X's Finder [Downloads]
Mac only: Many users have been unhappy with OS X's Finder for a while, wishing for tabs, fixes for hidden file annoyances, and other conveniences. TotalFinder is a plug-in containing all this and more, creating a Finder worthy of a power user.
We've all been itching for new features in Finder, and the latest upgrade to Snow Leopard did little to help that on the surface—but its rewriting in Cocoa has opened Finder up to all the possibilities of SIMBL plug-ins, which TotalFinder has taken advantage of. The biggest upside to this approach is that, unlike current Finder-replacement favorite PathFinder, TotalFinder integrates into the existing Finder so you don't have another application to launch. Also, it's free (albeit less feature-rich).

Some of the highlights include things like Visor-like activation—making Finder accessible at all times with just a hotkey. In addition, it has some hidden features that most of you Finder power users have probably already implemented, like showing hidden files. However, it adds to this by redirecting those annoying .DS_Store files to another folder, rather ingeniously—they'll still be accessible by Finder, but never again will they clutter up every Finder window you open.

Possibly the coolest and most wished-for feature TotalFinder adds, though, is tabbed browsing. The plug-in adds tabs to the title bar—similar to Chrome's (okay, they're exactly like Chrome's)—to save on some of that oh-so-precious screen real estate. Simple, but a huge boon to anyone who spends a lot of time in the app.

The biggest downside to TotalFinder is that it's still in alpha stage. In fact, it's more unstable than your average alpha—if there were such thing as super alpha, TotalFinder would certainly fall into that category. So make sure you have your Time Machine backup prepared just in case, and be forewarned! But if you back up religiously and love the thrill of over-tweaking your computer with unstable software, have at it. If you don't like it, there's an uninstall script that will remove it completely from your computer. Also, because it's in such early stages, the developers have a lot of things planned for the future—so, in theory, TotalFinder won't always be the unstable, feature-minimal upgrade it is now—god willing, we may all have a nice PathFinder replacement on our hands one day.

TotalFinder is a free download, Mac OS X 10.6 only. UPDATE: It turns out that the plug-in is likely only going to be free until the developer releases a beta version—but at least you can try it out until then, and worry about it when it turns into a pay app.
