WordPress Plugins I Use
However, rather than telling you which plugins I think are the most important by making a “top 10 WordPress plugins” or “my favorite plugins” post, I’ve installed the WP-PluginsUsed plugin, which will automatically update this page as I try out new plugins and replace any when I find something I like better.
Also note that I have several inactive plugins. With these I’m either trying to figure out if I need them, I like the concept and I’m trying to figure out how I can fit them in, or I’m testing different plugins with similar functions.
Anyway, here’s the list:There are 43 plugins used: 30 active plugins and 13 inactive plugins.
