RoloPress is a WordPress based, open source contact manager, which I am developing with my friend Steve Bruner. The main distinction of RoloPress is that it is an application build on top of WordPress and is not a separate application with is tied up with WordPress.


Some of the notable features of RoloPress for end users are:

  • All admin tasks can be performed from front-end itself. You don’t need to visit the admin area.
  • Ability to add/edit contacts
  • Ability to add/edit companies
  • Ability to add/edit notes about contacts or companies
  • Has lot of readymade widgets (around 8 in the initial release)

Developer features

RoloPress follows WordPress Plugin architecture and provides lot of features for developers to play around.

  • Highly extendable API
  • Lot of custom hooks and filters
  • Look and feel can be easily modified by creating child themes
  • Most of the existing WordPress Plugins will work out of the box
  • Easy to extend (If you know how to write a WordPress Plugin then you can easily write Plugins for RoloPress)
