The Sweet Plugin: CollabPress


Today’s Sweet Plugin is more of an application running on top of WordPress than anything else. CollabPress is a plugin developed by Brad Williams and the WebDevStudio team that basically gives you a Basecamp-like experience in your WordPress Dashboard.

Intrigued? You should be.

The video is embedded at the top of this post’s page, with more about the plugin below.


CollabPress is a project management plugin that runs within the WordPress Dashboard. It’s pretty simple right now, but it does run projects, task lists, and a calendar that displays all due dates.

If nothing else, it’s neat to see things like CollabPress really show just how much can be accomplished using WordPress. Do you use CollabPress, or other app-like plugins like it?

Video recorded with version 1.1.3 of CollabPress, running WordPress 3.1.3.

  1. I’m really looking forward to them releasing the functionality on their roadmap for BuddyPress integration and the ability to set up pre-populated templates.

    I’d be more than happy to pay for that too!
