Five plugins you can’t live without
perhaps something to add the repository? A list of popular plugins and plugins by category?
I highly recommend WP-Hashcash and Kitten’s Spamwords – the only two tools I now use on all my WP intalls – captured 12 or spam posts last night on one of the installs. No problems with comments on my own page itself. Wonderful stuff.
Can’t think of 5 – I only use three at best, and on most sites I currently use those two plugins.
Fancy Tooltips I guess to pretty up your site, as is Image Headlines, though to say I can’t live without them is a bit much. I hear Matt’s Asides is a good plugin, though I don’t quite know what it does.
Dr. Dave’s Spam Karma is the only one I can’t live without, though I’ve got 3 other plugs I’ve written to handle specific things on my blog. I also use Fancy Tooltips, Suggest, and wp-ContactForm cause they’re cool 🙂 There’s a few others running on my site too, but those are the ones that are the most useful to me.
SpamKarma (Dr.Dave) spiced with a hack and Paged comment edit (ColdForged), One click backup (LaughingLizard), Get custom field values and Hide/Cut post text (Coffee2Code) and RunPHP (Mark Somerville). Ok, that’s six and 1/3 — sorry 😛 None of them for bling-bling even though I used loads of those, too
I just wish if the plugin repository would be like the one in Mozilla extension library or repository.
Yeah that would be nice! Ok here’s what I use:
Comment Live Preview
The wp-plugin manager is pretty close – there is one click installation of a fair few plugins.
As for ones I can’t do with – Customisable post listings (coffee2code), runphp, spam/ refferrer karma (dr dave) andwp-plugin manager.
Comment Live Preview and…
CSS Compress (really does the job of reducing my style sheet)
I only use 6 anyway at the moment..
the only one I *really* couldn’t live without is moderate trackbacks (stupid spam)
and also maybe Brian’s threaded comments
Blogtimes, WP-pulse, gravatars and heavyweight categories
The only plugins I use are Spam Karma and Search Hilite.
Minna, you should check out the latest release of Spam Karma (v1.20). It includes the hack you were mentioning.
I see I’m in a room of bloggers who know quite a bit about plug-ins.
I have a need, and don’t know if there’s already a plug in for it…
I need a way to allow visitors to comment and attach a photo to their comment. Easily. These arenâ€™t all savvy visitors – nor do all of them have websites to link their images from. Any tips or plug-in code to help them do this?
Macmanx, cheers 🙂 SK goes up in versions faster than I can keep up with!
Smartzville, create a separate topic for your request. That way, you’ll step out of this “room of bloggers who know quite a bit about plug-ins”, and step into a gigantic forum of bloggers who know quite a bit about plug-ins.
Minna, he must be a really dedicated worker.
