Link Soup :: Posts About WordPress Plugins

I’ve got to admit, one of my favorite pastimes is wasting massive amounts of time tinkering with my WordPress plugins. I’m a sucker for “Top WordPress Plugins” posts on other people’s blogs.

I could browse the thousands of plugins at the WordPress Plugin Directory, but I find that it’s much easier to take recommendations from other bloggers.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out How to Blog :: The Manual.

Here are seven of my favorite lists followed by the plugins that I use on Genius Types. Remember, after you tinker with your site, make sure that it still jives on all browsers. Read Checking Browser Compatibility for more information.

    Cool. I also noticed the original link to the Contact Form seemed to be down, but it’s all good now!

    Thanks again Brian.

    I fixed the Kramer link. I also updated the contact form link to a newer version that has anti-spam features. With the old one, I was getting 10-20 spams a day.

    Thanks for the link Brian. I am interested in the Kramer plugin (looks like your link to it is messed up), and the Contact Form.

    Good post.
