    Arrow My Top Recommended Plugins

    Currently i have 49 plugins active in my self-hosted WP run site.
    Here are my top and must-have plugins.(I'm not stating the already famous ones like all-in-one seo, xml sitemaps, db-manager, etc...)

    AntiVirus - AntiVirus for WordPress is a smart and effective solution to protect your blog against exploits and spam injections

    Broken Link Checker - Checks your posts for broken links and missing images and notifies you on the dashboard if any are found

    Exclude Pages from Navigation
    - Provides a checkbox on the editing page which you can check to exclude pages from the primary navigation.(I use this for my privacy policy, terms and conditions, contact page)

    Math Comment Spam Protection - Asks the visitor making the comment to answer a simple math question.

    No Disposable Email - This plugin prevent people from registering with a disposable email addresses like the one provided by mailinator.

    Nofollow Tag Cloud - Inserts rel='nofollow' in links generated by wp_tag_cloud(), and optionally the_tags()

    Redirection - Manage all your 301 redirects and monitor 404 errors

    Register Plus - WordPress 2.5+ ONLY. Enhance your Registration Page. Add Custom Logo, Password Field, Invitation Codes, Disclaimer, Captcha Validation, Email Validation, User Moderation, Profile Fields and more.

    User Locker - This plugin locks user account after given number of incorrect login attempts.

    WP-Login-Vkb - Displays a virtual, on-screen keyboard to enter the wordpress password in a safer way, for example in internet caf├ęs.

    WP Security Scan - Perform security scan of WordPress installation.

    WordPress Exploit Scanner - This plugin searches the files on your website, and the posts and comments tables of your database for anything suspicious. It also examines your list of active plugins for unusual filenames.


    Any questions are welcome
    I highly recommend the ones in RED for added security in your blog. If you need to use any just copy the name from here and search it from your plugin section in your admin panel.

    The names of all plugins i've mentioned are in Bold.
    The Red ones are for security for your WP blog. They don't add visible effects but help secure your blog the same way how all-in-one-seo helps in Seo in a way that is not visible to the visitor.

    Great list! I am planning on starting up a blog and some of these seem to take a lot of the work outta it! Although I am not sure how exactly a virtual keyboard makes anything safer?

    A virtual keyboard helps keep your password safe from keyloggers.

    A keylogger is a malicious program which records all keystrokes made using your keyboard and sends the data hourly/daily/weekly to the hacker who placed it on your machine. This gives him all your personal data, i.e. usernames,passwords, etc..

    Trust me, using a keylogger is damn easy, even a kid can deploy one. A virtual keyboard is a must while gaining access to high priority accounts unless your very sure you aren't infected.

    No they don't. They are on-demand scans that run only when commanded. I guess 'Antivirus' checks your code once when any changes are made but that won't affect since the scan takes less than 2 minutes.
    So according to me they don't affect your speed.
