I’ll be honest, I love WordPress, probably a little too much too. But it really is something that is hard to fathom in its entirety. First off, it is so maleable as a website engine and then there are all of the plugins to mess with. Of which I have decided to list my top 5 that I currently use as there may be a couple that you haven’t heard of. I will also admit that I have many favourites as they all serve an individual purpose, which once you are used to them, you never want to lose them!
Top 5 WordPress Plugins
1. Gravatar Favicon – This choice might seem a little odd as a favicon is a 16×16 .ico image but it is seen in all the right places. By simply having your site’s email address as one that you have a Gravatar linked to (goto www.gravatar.com and you will understand) you have the same square image on your sites page tabs and also in the url bar… Too cool and very simple!
2. Facebook Comments for WordPress – Now I should really promote my website more on FB than I do, but I do love the idea of people being able to post comments through their FB Id rather than having to register for the site here… Registering always seems a ballache for commenting.
3. TweetMeme Retweet Button – Simply does as it says on the tin, lets people quickly tweet the title of the post to their followers and posts the link with it.
4. Simple Facebook Share Button – Does pretty much the same as TweetMeme but for FB
5. Page Meta – Gotta have an SEO nerdy one in there. This plugin gives you a simple box under your add new post dialogue box so that you can enter your Meta Title, Description and Keywords.
I could go on and probably list most of the plugins that I use but I won’t bore you lol
