8 WordPress Plugins You Can’t Live WithoutBy
Isn’t every WordPress blogger required at some point to write a post about their favorite WordPress plugins? Perhaps the title of this post is a bit of an overstatement but these are my favorite WP plugins that I use on a regular basis.
- Contact Form 7 This is a very simple and flexible contact form.
- Ozh’ Admin Drop Down Menu An extremely useful admin plugin. It puts all of the admin options in a handy dropdown.
- Secure WordPress Helps secure a site from hackers.
- WordPress Automatic Upgrade This plugin is a lifesaver, plugins can be automatically updated with the click of a button.
- WordPress Mobile Edition A very simple plugin for making a blog mobile friendly. Be sure to read the readme since the installation is slightly different than a regular plugin.
- WP Decoratr Pulls Creative Commons pictures from Flickr based on keywords in a post. Pictures can be inserted simply by selecting them.
- Subscribe To Comments Adds a checkbox to comments that allows commenting users to subscribe to the comment thread.
- All in One SEO Pack Makes your blog more SEO friendly by optimizing titles and meta tags. It is also customizable.
Download and try out some of these plugins if you haven’t already. The thing I love about WordPress is that someone has developed a plugin to do just about anything you can think of.
