This is an extremely long list of my favorite WordPress plugins. It reads like an “Oprah’s” favorite things list she does in the winter of every year. My all time favorite WordPress plugin for my WordPress blog is WP-SpamFree 22.214.171.124 which has been true to its function since I’ve installed it on my WordPress blog. I can’t tell if Askimet is in the background working because it seems like overnight the comment spam and spambot has come to a complete halt. Believe it one not I was using concurrently several spam WordPress plugins to fight spam but it manage to seep throough these powerful tools until I discovered WP-SpamFree. I was getting bombarded with all kinds of spam before this goody. Platinum SEO pack is second best because it really is an all in one tool that is golden. The One Click upgrader and Instant Upgrader is King for any WordPress blog user to have in their list of favorite WordPress plugins. As you can see this is a very long list of WordPress plugins which I have been using on my WordPress blog with no conflict thus far. There are tons of WordPress plugins on the internet being developed by a lot of intelligent individuals who have a knack for html. Thank goodness for them because I wouldn’t have the patience to come up with the ingredients for a plugin even if someone offered me serious money to develop one. I don’t mind test driving any WordPress plugins on my blog. Pardon the missing direct links but this list, you can find the WordPress plugins or Google Enjoy the list!
