The grand prize was awarded to Godfrey Chan for his “Section Widget” plugin. The plugin provides a way to display widgets on specific pages with an easy to use interface. It also comes with a feature that lets users create tabbed section widgets, as well as shortcode support for easy code placement.
Taking up the runner-up positions are Ron Rennick with the “Advanced Export for WP and WPMU” plugin, which provides WordPress users the ability to break up their exports into multiple files, and Chris Northwood with his entry, “Live Blogging”, a plugin that provides a live “micro-blogging” functionality for WordPress blogs.
Winners of the contest were chosen through a panel of judges and by votes from the readers of WeblogTools Collection.
The grand prize winner receives a cash prize of $2000, while each runner-up gets $500.
Congratulations to the winners! Looking forward another batch of cool plugins next year!
