    I realize that which plug-ins are best for you depends on what you do with your blog...but I thought I'd ask whether folks might tell someone new to WP what their best & favorite plug-ins are--& why.

    Some of my special plug-in needs: I have lots of photos & mp3 files in my blog. I also tend to use tables a lot when I display multiple photos in a post.

    Also, could you provide download or demo links if possible?

  2. Currently, I use:

    Bad Behavior, to keep bandwidth wasting, email harvesting, and spam posting bots out of this site.
    Permalink Redirect, to ensure that redirected permalinks (those entered without a trailing slash) return a 301 permanent redirect message.
    Screw Nofollow, to disable the rel=nofollow attribute in the comments area.
    Search Hilite, to highlight search terms when visiting from any popular search engine.
    Search Pages, to allow pages to be searched as well as posts.
    Spam Nuker, to manage spam deleted by WordPress' default anti-spam tools.
    Translator, to present MacManX.com in 9 different languages (including English).
    WP-ContactForm, to provide a contact form and hide my email address from spam bots.

    I also use ShortStat (which is an external PHP script, not a WordPress plugin) to monitor live site statistics.

    I've been waiting for someone to translate your site into English...
