Adds some lightweight features to manage scientific groups and users.

  • Use WordPress 3.1 - Older Versions will cause trouble

WP4Labs is a small Plugin, wich provides some functions to manange a lab or a scientific group. I designed it for the websites of two Biolabs. It's far away from being my first WP-Plugin, but it's the first one I want to publish. I tested it in four or five WP-installtions on dofferent servers, and it seems to all OK.

It provides the following parts: - An advanced User Profile, containing some fields for academic career dates - in connection with that a connection to the ariw.org-database of scientific institutions wordl wide, to make it easer finding a specific institution and it's URL - the possibility to manage users in academic groups, such as Alumni, Post-Doc, P.I. and such (customizable) - a local-avatar function which maintains the possibility for users to use a Gravatar (maybe someday I should take this one out and make a own plugin out of it) - a post-type called 'project', to which you can connect users to (scientific) groups. Only users with P.I.-status (for being leader of the group) can add or remove users.

A nice backend integration is built, I also ship some example templates to learn, how to integrate the provided functions to your theme.
