First of all, sorry if the title is a bit misleading. It should be "Top 10 (best) WordPress plugins that I found and installed in 2007" but it’s too long to fit in there. I started blogging at the end of September and many plugins were installed in my WordPress blogging system since then.
So without further ado, here are they (not in a particular order):
This plugin finds 15-30 spam comments a day on my blog. Man, I don’t know what can I do without this plugin.
- Dean’s FCKEditor for WordPress
The best replacement of the WordPress’ default editor. Has a few bugs and limitations but not a show stopper.
- Maintenance Mode
Disable or enable your blog with a click of a button. Good when you need to upgrade your WordPress.
- Subscribe to Comments
Allow your readers to be notified when someone replies to their comments.
- WordPress Database Backup
Backup and restore your WordPress important data files and database.
- WP-Digg Style Paginator
Paginate your blog and posts with this plugin (Digg-style or other CSS styles)
- Download Manager
Easily manage your files where your readers can download on your blog posts.
Display how many views have a post been viewed. Some people say it’s bad to display it if the postview is low. However, I found that it motivates me to keep blogging (knowing that someone actually reads your post out there)
- WP Tags to Technorati
Automatically convert WordPress tags to Technorati tags. Useful to make your blog searchable in Technorati.com
Create a Contact Me page with automated forms and anti SPAM feature.
I would like to thank greatly to those who spend a lot of their time and energy to make these plugins (and not asking for any payments).
