Menu Duplicator

The Lowdown:
Needing to create a duplicate of a menu for many reasons and one of the best is because you want to try out different menus . This plugin is simple and easy to use. Turn on activate and you go select the menu to duplicate give it a name and your done easy peasy.
Rating 5 Dragons

Services Plugin For WordPress

Premium Plugin submitted by Shawn DeWolf
The Lowdown:
This is a simple plugin to add to your site that will allow you to create a services section of your site, using custom post types you create all your services with images then you can display it on a single page with short codes. A nice simple plugin to help you create that service section
Rating 4 Dragons

WordPress Podcast Player

submitted by Dan Berry
Premium Plugin
The Lowdown:
While this is a pretty great addon player for your website and podcast I ran into issues using it in a MU environment it kept not saving the episode and settings. On the test site it seemed to be ok. What is does is add some additional work if you already use something like blubrry. But it does add a couple great things to your show by allowing you to add notes that will appear below the show at specific times and have some automated links to download the show. All in all I tough it would be a great idea to add in just did not get it to work correctly in MU environment or it could be a conflict with the many other plugins on the main site.

WP Better Emails

All emails from WordPress (lost password, notifications, etc.) are sent by default in text/plain format. WP Better Emails wraps them with a much better looking customizable HTML email template and lets you also set your own sender name and email address. I liked this, but the table layout made aligning a company logo with text almost impossible. Otherwise it worked great for getting rid of the admin user as the primary sender/reply to on system emails.
