Top 5 most useful Wordpress Plugins

TekGoblin:

I know there are many different articles out there that cover WordPress plugins but I felt the need to create one based on my own experiences. I have compiled a list of the top 5 most useful WordPress plugins that I actively use on my sites.

WordPress.com Stats is not near as good as Sitemeter or Google Analytics. It gives you very basis stats and information, while Analytics for instance can allow you to drill down and obtain a lot of in depth data. You can use the Yoast Google Analytics plugin if you wish to not mess with the HTML code of the site. BTW you should ditch that old school Facebook share button for the newer one (not the like button).

I do not feel the need to install a plugin for google analytics when I can just use the actual google site for that. Wordpress.com stats provides a glimpse into the traffic that I need. I use around 5 analytic tools at the same time. My best one being Mint from haveamint.com

@Analytics - Im just saying in case a user does not want to mess with their hardcore. Remember not everyone is as versed in HTML as us.

Actually both of those buttons are no longer available on facebooks developer site they moved to the square like button now.

big:

<a name="fb_share" type="box_count" href=" http://www.facebook.com/sha... src=" http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/... type="text/javascript&quo t;></script>

small:

<a name="fb_share" type="button_count" href=" http://www.facebook.com/sha... src=" http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/... type="text/javascript&quo t;></script>

I will get rid of my plugins that handle that when I can, I am going to have some developer work done on the site in the near future. I am also looking for casual writers if anyone is interested ;)

mjurek2129d ago

I remember why its like that, the new button causes issues on the site that I need to address.

sorry about the mess, and oh. Maybe you should use the like button and add the open graph info to your header.

Agreed, i used most of those Plugin's back when i used to Blog, but i don't anymore (Got Way To Busy For It), A lot of people i know use Blogspot, even though Wordpress is clearly better that that.
