    Wordpress plugins a website can't go without

    What Wordpress plugins do you use in your websites? Are there any that you MUST install and that you can't go without?

    That's pretty easy.

    1. Make sure that you activate Akismet. This is the best plugin ever developed.
    2. All-In-One-SEO pack

    Other plugins that I find to be very useful, although I could live without them.

    3. Lester Chan's wp-useronline
    4. Sociable
    5. wp-security-scan - to check install
    6. wp-super-cache
    7. google-sitemap-generator
    8. wp-db-backup
    "Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote." -- Benjamin Franklin

  3. Our standard plugins right now are:

    • akismet
    • all-in-one-adsense-and-ypn
    • all-in-one-seo-pack
    • flexi-pages-widget
    • karailievs-sitemap
    • limit-post.php
    • seo-image
    • sociable
    • wordpress-23-related-posts-plugin
    • wp-pagenavi
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

  4. I really like the "related posts" plugin (there are a few that do it, actually). The ones that show a list of links to your blog posts that are related to that post.

    I would also say that adding a plugin that's going to handle the canonical 301 issues (i.e., 301 redirecting to is also important.
    Need links? Try AuthorLinks where you can buy or sell links based on Authorship and Klout score. Check out my blog or like me on Facebook.

    For me, the core three that I have activated are:

    Akismet (duh)
    All in One Adsense and YPN
    All in One SEO Pack

    But I am a bit of a wannabe newbie lamer, so I'll probably add some more as I get old.

    My Standard Setup includes:

    All in One SEO Pack
    Break Out Frames
    Global Translator
    Google XML Sitemaps
    Related Posts

    Sometimes I also use:

    Simple Tags
    Paged Comments
    Nextgen Gallery
    and a few others I don't recall atm.

  7. Hey, this is interesting: on this blog post (see slide number 13), you can see that Matt Cutts of Google: (1) recommends Wordpress (sweet), and (2) uses these plugins:

    Cookies for Comments
    Enforce www. preference
    FeedBurner FeedSmith
    WP Super Cache

    That's gotta say something, no?

  8. #8
    For me

    Akismet Plugin
    WP DB Backup Plugin
    WP Contact Form Plugin
    Social Bookmarking Plugin
    All In One Seo Plugin

    Popularity Post Plugin
    Similar Post Plugin

    For me:-

    Most Popular Posts
    WP DB Backup
    Wp super cache
    All In One Seo

    I have stopped using akismet these days, as i removed Comments to make it look like a proper website.
    Custom Wordpress Themer
    - Wordpress Portals & themes -

  10. I'd like to see a lot more responses to this thread, and then a wrap-up where someone counts the "votes" for each plugin.
