What are your "must have" plugins? (5 posts)

    As I look towards building more sites on WordPress, I want to have a standard installation set of plugins--the must-haves no matter what the site. Here's are the plugins I've found useful (or expect to be useful...haven't tried the google ones yet)...looking for feedback on what others might add or subtract from this list:

    Math comment spam protection (or simple CAPTCHA)
    all in one SEO pack
    tinyMC advanced
    contact form 7
    google analytics for wordpress
    google xml sitemaps

    And I'm wondering if I should add these to my list:
    broken link checker
    wp supercache

    And I figure on these as an as-needed depending on the navigational/UI needs:
    Wordpress menu creator

    dont upload plugins to sites on the basis of them useful in the future, or seeming like they may be..

    just a very good piece of advice.

  3. I agree with whooami, I only install plugins if necessary and try to minimize my use of plugins. All projects are different and should be treated as such.

    Best plugin. Hands down it is Mollom!! This thing is IMO priceless. Basically it protects your website against comment and trackback spam. I used to get 20-80 comment spams per day to moderate... that sucks. With Mollom the spam is removed not left for you to waste time moderating them. Nice!!
