Cutting a plugin loose – Goodbye WP-Project June 23, 2008 10:24 pm

I liked the concept of WP-Project. It’s a WordPress plugin which adds a tab in your dashboard for project management. It was inspired by Basecamp (collaboration piece for project management) and Harvest(er) (a timetracker). Conceptually we like to spend a lot of time in our dashboards so why not do our project management there too? I just didn’t find the plugin robust enough for my needs. And if it was robust enough, I’d be concerned that my database, which already has issues with Spam Karma eating its space, would fillup too quickly. (n.b. The database has a 100MB allocation.) For now, I’m going to try out Zoho’s project management.

I’m glad to see that you tried out the plugin. Would you be willing to offer suggestions on the ways in which the robustness of the plugin could be improved to meet your needs. I have some ideas in mind, but I’m looking for greater feedback from the community.

Sure thing. I’ll pull some thoughts together and drop you a line.
