Plugins for the Thesis Theme 1.8.7

I’ve created some plugins for use by BYOBWebsite members. These plugins are intended to help beginners implement their design work without knowing CSS and PHP and provide time savings for intermediate and advanced users. These plugins will cut out hours of development time. They only work with the Thesis theme installed and require at least Thesis version 1.8 and WordPress 3.0. Please not that these plugins DO NOT work with any version of Thesis 2
Some plugins may require later versions of WordPress and they will be so noted. Transform your site from “blah” into “WOW!!” with these specially designed plugins.
