WordPress WednesdaysShare your WordPress plugins list with us – and let us know which ones are your favorites and why. Perhaps there’s a killer plugin that we haven’t heard of but adds some extra functionality we want to our sites – or just a fun plugin that makes things a little more fun. 😛

Here’s my top 5 plugins:

SRG Clean Archives by Sean R. — This plugin is designed to display your archive listings in a clean, uniform, single-query fashion that’s Search Engine friendly on a dedicated page or in your sidebar. I really like the clean, easy to use functionality of this plugin. It was easy to set up and even easier to maintain.

Better Comments Manager by Keith Dsouza — Better Comments manager allows you to view your comments post wise, it also allows you to reply to your comments from within admin panel without you having to visit the site to respond to comments. I couldn’t make replies to my comments without this one! It makes it so easy to reply to comments that I actually get sad when I run out of comments to reply to!

In Series by Travis Snoozy — Gives authors an easy way to connect posts together as a series. I use this plugin for my 101 Steps to Becoming a Better Blogger series, and it works like a charm.

Link A Dink by Dax “The Hammer” Herrera — Replace strings with links or other words. Saves me a ton of time in linking to different webpages because I can just put the code in the administration screen and let this plugin do the work. A must have if you like to blog on the go or you have frequently used phrases or links.

What Would Seth Godin Do by Richard K Miller — This plugin rocks because you can customize your welcome message to say whatever you like, display as many times as you like and basically encourage people to do whatever you like. 😆 I have tweaked it to ask new visitors to subscribe if they like the site and to visit again. But, you could use this to announce contests, feature special content and more!

    • All in One SEO Pack is a great plugin! I wish they’d build it into WP, but until then, I will just keep installing it on all of my new websites!
