I have a question I hope experienced WP users can help me with. I, along with others, are starting a few blogs and have made the decision to use WP. I have scrolled the plugins and studied many of them for hours, but I thought it would be helpful to ask this community of experienced users which plugins you consider essential?
We are anticipating a fairly high volume of traffic based on the history of our other online ventures. Therefor we are concerned about issues such as security (from spammers, etc...), efficient advertising options and admin capabilities as we will have multiple contributors for each blog. Just to name a few of our concerns. So any thoughts would be appreciated on which plugins you feel are essential for us?
