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.

UPDATE: I’ve since added the Related Posts plugin and the Math Comment Spam plugin to the list.
