Happy Monday, folks! We’ve got a few new and updated plugins this week, so let’s start there.
Byrne Reese released a new version of the Photo Gallery plugin. This version includes two new options for the “front door” of your gallery. You can now choose a grid or blog layout, and you can display a featured photo. Byrne also released an updated version of the plugin’s documentation.
SetOffset, written by Shinichi Nozawa, is an enhancement to the Movable Type admin. On the Manage Entries screen, it allows you to “jump” to a specific point in the list of entries, rather than have to page through them to find the one you want. read more

The WPCandy Network is growing, with the most recent addition of a WordPress design gallery called WPInspiration. At first glance it looks like a typical CSS gallery site, but featuring WordPress powered instead of just CSS based once, but it seems as if the folks behind it will be taking it a step furter:
Unlike a lot of other galleries, each site will feature a short, personal review from Mike or Dan. We’ll note some things about the site, things we don’t like, and ways it might be able to be improved. Reviews won’t go very in-depth but will be more than sticking a URL and a thumbnail in our database. We haven’t gone back and reviewed every site in our database, only the 10 most recent ones.
WPCandy and WPInspiration is run by Michael Castilla, who founded the whole thing, and Dan Pilibin.
