You all know that the WordPress platform needs no further introduction as it is already a celebrity of its own. While WordPress in itself is very functional, it is obvious that there are features that are deliberately excluded, as it is not a one size fits all (they do try). For every WordPress user, there is always someone who will want something different from the other. Here is where the so called plugins come into play.
WordPress plugins are tools that extends this popular platform’s functionality. With WP plugins, almost anything can be done or added to your WP powered site. There are plugins for your design, WordPress SEO, security, social sharing, management, productivity, and more. Think about some functionality you want to add, and most likely, some WordPress developer has already done it. The WordPress repository has an estimated 15K plus of available plugins for everyone to use and obviously, there are the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Now, you might or might not heard of WordPress Junkies (WPJ) before. It is a project that Michele of NewBizBlogger and I, decided to launch not so long ago. WPJ is a social and bookmarking site for all WordPress enthusiasts and lovers. Find more info here.
That said, the both of us, being users and strong advocates of using this software to support all types of online ventures, we thought it would be beneficial to provide our community and readers a list of plugins that have provided us the most value. After many, many, many hours of work… an eBook is born.
