Five Must-Have Wordpress Plugins

Comments Off

For the past several months I’ve been hard at work on this new blog, so I thought I would list some of the most useful plugins and widgets that I’ve come across, most of which I use on this blog.

1: Wordpress Category Posts
This is a very handy plugin. It allows you to add a widget to your sidebar that lists a user-defined amount of recent posts in a certain category. Best part is that you can add the widget multiple times to list more than one category on the side.

2: WP Polls
This plugin adds a very smooth and highly customizable AJAX poll to your blog. It’s got a widget to go along with it, and you can place polls anywhere on your site. Pretty nifty.

3: Feed Locations
This plugin is extremely helpful. It allows you to set the URL for your RSS feeds easily without having to mess with your template. Perfect for using Feed Burner.


4: YARPP (Yet Another Related Posts Plugin)
You can see this one in action at the bottom of every article. The amount of control you have with this plugin is ridiculous. You can set what aspects of posts to take into consideration regarding its relation (tags, body, category). Not only that, you can set how much weight to give each criteria.

5: WP125
Wanna advertise on your site like a pro? WP125 knows how to do it. You can upload your ads, set when they’ll go live, when they’ll be taken down, track how many clicks they generate, and more.
