Marketing Pilgrim’s Plugin List
Jeremy Luebke emailed me to ask if I would care to share the plugins used on MP. The site was fully custom built, so there may be some modified things, but here’s the list…
Akismet – Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web serivce to see if they look like spam or not.
Gravatars – for those cool photos next to comments.
intouch – for the contact form.
No Self Pings – prevents WordPress from sending pings for stuff I link to from my own site.
Social Bookmark Links – the drop down menu for bookmarking a post.
Subscribe To Comments – lets readers get email updates on comments.
Google Sitemaps – to help Google find all the new pages.
WordPress Reports – adds my Google Analytics and Feedburner stats to the WordPress dash.
Text Link Ads v2 – allows me to add sponsored messages to the bottom of my posts.
Ultimate Tag Warrior – for tagging posts that are outside a category.
WordPress Email Notification Plugin v2.3.1 – lets readers get new posts via email instead of RSS.
Sidebar Widgets – added by the developer so even I can update my sidebars. 🙂
wp-cache – not used this yet, but if I get slashdotted, this will help stop the site from slowing down by caching pages.
Strangely, the Hello Dolly plugin didn’t make it to my list. 🙂
So, who wants to share their favorite WordPress plugin? I’ll give a shout-out (and link) to anyone who recommends a plugin I end up using.
