must have wordpress plugins

We have set up various WordPress sites for ourselves and our clients. User’s love the easy to use interface and we love the flexible back-end. One of the great features of the WordPress.org platform / community is the ability to utilize plugins to extend the site.  Here is a list of some basic must have plugins:

  • Akismet - comment spam filter, you will need to create a wordpress.com account and get an API key to get it running, but it’s defiantly worth it.
  • WP-Print and WP-EMail - adds email and print functionality to each post
  • Sociable - Adds social bookmarking links under each post.
  • Twitter-Tools - Connects your WordPress blog with your twitter account. Allows you to show tweets on your blog in the sidebar or as posts, auto tweets new blogs, and has a variety of settings to customize to meet your needs.

Check out additional plugins in the wordpress.org plugin directory and let us know your ‘must have’s’.
