I have a number of websites, and many of them are WordPress blog based. There are lots of great plugins for WordPress to use. Here’s a list of some of them I’ve found useful:
- Akismet – Spam blocker
- Bad Behavior – Spam blocker used in addition to Akismet
- CommentLuv – Gives a backlink to a commentor’s last post
- Contact Form 7 – Customizable contact form
- Lightbox 2 Plugin – Used for showing larger views of images in posts
- List Subpages with Descriptions – Just what it says
- NoFollow Free – Remove nofollow from comments, with customizable settings
- Popshops.com – Add products you affiliate to your blog
- ShareThis – Make it easy for folks to share posts they like
- ShowIKRSS – Display Imagekind galleries in your blog and make links affiliate links.
- WordPress Automatic Upgrade – A must have for upgrading WordPress
- WP-Ads – Useful for showing ads or content wherever you want in your blog
- WP-Amazon – A way to find Amazon.com products to add to your blog
There are many other great plugins I’m not using because I don’t have a need for them or haven’t heard of them. I did want to share the ones I like and use most often.
