I like WordPress. I used to be a big Blogger.com fan, in fact, I still have my old blogspot blog. But, since I moved to WordPress, I realized how limited Blogger.com was and how amazing WordPress is. The fact that you can extend WordPress with the use of plugins, makes this blogging package even more powerful. Here is the list of plugins I currently have installed on this site:
- Bunny’s Technorati Tags allows easy addition to a post of a space-separated list of tags which can be displayed with adequate Technorati links in the template. Can display keywords instead if no tags are available.
- del.icio.us – Bookmark this! allows you to add a “Bookmark this page on del.icio.us” link on you sidebar / posts / wherever.
- Get Recent Comments displays the most recent comments or trackbacks with your own formatting in the sidebar.
- Identify External Links searches the text for links outside of the domain of the blog. To these, it adds class=â€extlinkâ€. I modified it to also add target=â€_blankâ€.
- Live Comment Preview supplies users with a live comment preview.
- Related Posts returns a list of the related entries based on keyword matches.
- Subscribe me adds buttons at the end of your sidebar so your visitors can subscribe to your blog via services such as Bloglines and MyYahoo!.
- Google Sitemaps generates a Google compliant sitemap of your blog.
- Subscribe To Comments allows readers to receive notifications of new comments that are posted after their own.
- Click Counter adds a click counter to links in your posts.
I found some of the plugins I use while browsing Wilfred’s list of plugins that he had installed on his blog.
If you have WordPress on your blog and use a plugin that is useful and is not listed above, please do not hesitate to share it with us.
