Hi all, Im new to WordPress, but I’ve scoured these boards and the internet looking for the best plugins for WordPress to be used as a magazine.
Ive actually gotten a headache over the last week looking at all the different plugins.
So, id like some opinions on the best plugins that will do the following…if you all don’t mind.
1. Related articles. Would give a list several related articles tot eh one being read.
2. Ad Banner rotator that lets me add ad blocks to the side bar as well as within a post (is ad rotator the best one?)
3. I want to use custom news feeds that ive specified through Yahoo newsfeeds to show up as a list in a sidebar. Should be able to specify how many are visible and able to view an archive. example, a newsfeed that specifies air safety, a list of headlines taht link to the source article…or if possible, to a page on my site that shows the news.
4. Categories that list a specified number of posts. It should allow me put the categories in teh main portion of the main page with the list under each.
5. And, is there a navigation plug in that i can put pages in a horizontal menu between the header and the body with subpages?
6. Any plug in taht would be essential in building a magazine or newspaper..the best of the best…
7. OH, and a plug in that will allow the first post of each SPECIFIED category on the main page. I could choose the category that should be on the front page, and the first post of those category shows up as part of my front page content.
I know this is alot, and i’ll keep looking but Ive installed so many, im getting confused with what is best and best overall use…best options, etc.
Thank you everyone, in advance.
I know this is alot, but i think if those plugins were available and listed, then others with the same idea of a newspaper/mag would definitely benefit.
