Our 'To Do List' Plugin is now finished (v1.0) and available for download. See our WordPress To Do List Plugin page for more details.
I put this Plugin together as I wanted a way to easily maintain a list of items I need to do on my Blog. From writing new posts, updating existing pages, and changing site structure, to new ideas for Plugins etc. I find it really useful to be able to keep all of this information in one place in the admin section of your Blog. It is easy then to refer to this list, and add/delete items as necessary.
Underneath the To Do List input area is a notification of who last edited the list, and when. So, if there is more than one person using the Blog admin then it shows who edited the document last.
Also, the Plugin automatically checks to see if magic quotes are turned on, on your server. If so, the text entered in the To Do List text box is automatically stripped of escape characters (backslashes). Otherwise the text is left unchanged.
Hope people might find this useful. :)
