Volcano Widget 1

Upload File Type Settings Plugin

Requires: 3.0.0 or higher
Compatible up to: 3.4.2
Last Updated: 2012-12-7
Downloads: 97

This plugin allows admins to specify additional file types that are allowed for uploading to the blog. By default, WordPress only allows a very limited set of file types to be uploaded. This set is defined by a so called “white list”. What's not on the white list can't be uploaded.

This plugin allows you to extend this white list through a settings page.
Additionally it comes with a wide range of file types that are enabled automatically, like audio files (ac3, mp4, …) and video files (avi, mkv, …).

Sweet Custom Dashboard

Requires: 3.0 or higher
Compatible up to: 3.5
Last Updated: 2012-12-6
Downloads: 99

Too often customizing the WordPress dashboard is adding or removing metaboxes. With this plugin you can create your own WordPress dashboard containing any HTML or PHP elements you want. You're not limited anymore!
