Essential WordPress Plugins

Rak asked 3 years ago
A few people have asked me to show them how to setup wordpress, what needs doing, and then how to choose plugins – because there are really so many of them out there.

For me to install a wordpress plugin, it

  • Has to be available on the wordpress site, or through the install interface. (trust factor)
  • Must have been released a few times. (stable)
  • Compatible with my version of WordPress. (stable)
  • And off course do what I need doing!

I find that with every install these days, I install the following plugins :

  • Web Ninja GA – to install Google Analytics
  • SEO Ultimate – Does fantastic SEO work for your blog
  • Google XML Sitemaps – all sites should have xml sitemaps!
  • Link Juice Keeper – worked hard for those links, dont let them go to waste!
  • WP-Table-Reloaded – makes sexy looking tables, with all sorts of cool features
  • Contact Form 7 – every site needs one?

Thats my must have install list – there are a few others, but… not as nearly as important to me as what I have listed above.

Would love to know what other people are using, and why!
