Many bloggers use WordPress as their blogging platform and even as a content management system. So why not add a little bit of project management to the mix?

[Enter]: CollabPressProject Management for WordPress

CollabPress is a plugin which adds project and task management functionality to WordPress. Easily create projects and assign tasks to users.

  • Unlimited projects, task lists, tasks, and comments
  • Easily edit/delete projects, task lists, tasks, and comments
  • Email notifications for new tasks and comments
  • Task due dates with a calendar view
  • Uses built-in WordPress user accounts
  • Activity log tracking all activity
  • Multisite compatible
  • 100% GPL and Free!

I’m a big fan of WordPress.

I run the Standard Theme as my wordpress system and absolutely love it. Though this particular project management plugin isn’t for everyone, there may be a few out there that find value in having task management mixed into your wordpress.

  • Do you have a blogging team? This could work.
  • Do you have multiple authors that contribute to your WordPress blog? This could work.
  • Do you need to manage your own blogging schedule? This could work.

What we specifically like about CollabPress are a couple of things:

  • It’s FREE
  • Unlimited projects and tasks
  • Simple GUI to manage everything

Not convinced? Give it a spin if you’d like. It’s not too heavy on your system and it may just be exactly what you need to get your own blogging schedule in order!
