Plugins to be made a part of download

  1. Inactive

    Download of the software could be extended to include the essential plugins (a without plugins version can also be made available for download).
    Some of the good plugins to have by default
    1) Subscribe to comments
    2) Gravatar
    3) Adsense

    i'm a better fan of allowing web admins choose what they need. Better plugin managment on the other hand would be a good idea.

    Thing is you have just proved a point... Those plugins are your choice... Personally I have yet to use any of those on my wordpress sites.

    Static front page would have been a better one in my opinion, but it it obviously rated so highly, it's been included as built in behaviour of 2.1

    The only plugins that should be added by default are ones that Automattic puts out.

    Why do you think Adsense should be included by default? Do you think everyone puts ads on their blog? How is this plugin "essential"? Don't you think plugins which protect your blog from comment spam or give you a means of backing up your database are a little more "essential"?

    why i added adsense was because it is very difficult to integrate adsense ... by default, i mean just the installation..the activation could be left to individual.
    of course backup and http://techie-buzz.com/wordpress-plugins/wordpress-automatic-upgrade-plugin.html are the MOST essential plugins
