Plugins You Should Know About

I have a lot of plugins, as you can see here, but these are ones you may not know about but should.

Register Plus – Makes it easier to keep spam from registering and requiring people registering to offer more information. I like to know who it is who is registering and now they have to give a first name, email, website and there is a captcha too. A few more hoops but this way I don’t have to figure out who is who and if they deserve to get into the private sector of my site.

Lightbox – Instead of opening up a picture on a separate page it opens up the picture without changing pages, it’s very clean and professional looking, all blogs should use this feature.

Clean Archives Reloaded – I wanted to have a really nice archives page without having to do any HTML to obtain it, I tried a couple different plugins but this was the best.

PostPost – I like having the option to add footers or headers to your posts and feeds while still being able to easily change it when you want to. This way I don’t have to figure out how to add it into my comments.php.

WP Comment Remix – What a genius plugin, now replying to each person is a lot easier as you probably noticed recently. I can click under the name where it says Reply and it gives me an @Robin. Only problem is that when you click it, it automatically goes to the beginning of your comment box. So I click on each reply from bottom up and then fill in my response. That may have only made any sense to me.

    I am so retarded none of that made sense.

    It is also possibly the vicodin I have been eating like candy.

    Howdy.

    Register Plus sounds great, but does it render one’s entire WordPress blog password protected?

    I’m looking for that specifically, so that only readers have to get past a sign-in page that checks their bona fides before letting them to the blog.
