Application Function

Has anyone come across how to incorporate into WordPress how to have a student application? Maybe not for a campus at large (leaving it to something like PeopleSoft) but for smaller program specific applications. I thought about gravity forms but it's more the backend with application review, etc. that has me stumped.Any thoughts?See More

WordPress Plugin List

As I'm new and all to the network I'm not exactly sure how to start this but here it goes. After joining the WP group I found myself looking through all the old posts just to see what people were talking about in terms of using WP as a CMS for a higher ed site. One thing I liked reading were the posts that had listings of all sorts of good plugins, but as I read on with certain terms (like WPMU) and looking plugins up only to see they were no longer supported I realized that these lists must be…See More
