62 WordPress Plugins, For Beginners, Intermediate And Advanced Users

by DiTesco

Top 62 WordPress Plugins

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.

62 WordPress Plugins, You Should Know About…

Hi Francisco,

Just awesome really tech WP gems – I’m waiting the email to download the ebook 😉

RTed, BEed, stumbled and “Google+ed” no idea how to write the last lol 🙂

Cheers,

I am interested in this but do you know when it was last updated as things move so fast online. I like how wp is minimal bloat but when there are some plugins which might be deemed “essential” (Security/Database Optimization) I need to know!

6 DiTesco July 10, 2011 at 4:16 pm

Hi Danika. Sorry for the late response. This ebook was just released so for that matter it is updated. The plugins that we recommend there are equally updated and most of its developers has also updated for use with 3.2. I hope that answers your question and also hope that you will head over there to grab it for yourself. We try to be 100% accurate but you how technology goes… So if you feel that there is something outdated in the eBook, I will really appreciate you letting me know. It is “users” feedback that make the internet a better place 🙂

7 Ileane July 7, 2011 at 10:36 pm

Congratulations! I love the cover too. Can’t wait to dig into this. Thanks so much for creating this one for us.

8 DiTesco July 7, 2011 at 11:28 pm

You are welcome Ileane and really Michele and I, had this idea for a long time.. finally saw it born. Joint effort made it all happen 🙂 Glad you liked the cover (Michele the creative part and me the cover itself – Free tool online, can you believe that).. Hope you like the content of the ebook too 😉

Hi Brankica. I don’t see any reason why you have not received the eBook. Check your spam folder as it may have landed there. If you don’t get it, let me know and I’ll make sure you get one.

Congratulations, I saw the ebook earlier, but haven’t had the chance to check it out. I love the cover art…

13 DiTesco July 7, 2011 at 11:23 pm

Hi James. Once you get it, let me know what you think.

The art creative was done by Michele and I did the eCover. Do you believe that I have done it with a free online cover maker? Want to know the secret, lol

Wow what a great idea this is, putting together a collection of WP plugins and the details and give it away for subscriptions! I love the cover, good choice of color and design! I’ll come back to you for the eBook as soon as I get my hosted WP blog. Thanks.

20 DiTesco July 8, 2011 at 9:05 pm

Hi Nella. You really don’t need to even have a blog, just be a part of our community on WPJ and you’ll get the ebook. Either way, it is great to meet new people and build some relationships 🙂

Hi DiTesco,

I am curious to know how we will receive it as well. Do you get it shortly after signing up?

25 DiTesco July 8, 2011 at 9:02 pm

Brian. If you are already a registered user, we sent out emails to everyone who was registered on or before yesterday. If you are not yet a member, just register for an account and you will received both activation and a welcome message that will contain the link of the ebook. This should not take more than five minutes after your registration is complete. Let me know if you run into problems

26 DiTesco July 8, 2011 at 8:59 pm

Hi Lye. Thanks! It is just our way of syaing thanks for our community 🙂 The email containing the link for registered members was sent out yesterday. Make sure you are looking in the same email address you used on WPJ. Also, check on your spam folder as it might have landed there. Let me know after all this if you still did not get it.

28 DiTesco July 10, 2011 at 4:16 pm

Go get it, Brian 🙂 Nothing to loose, and a lot to gain, lol

Looks like a nice book… but to be frank I have enuff plugins on my blog, one more and im scared it’ll slow down or crash 🙂

Nice cover by the way

30 DiTesco July 10, 2011 at 4:19 pm

Hi Sandeep. I understand what you are saying but the idea is to overtime, replace some plugins that are outdated or make way for better ones. I trust that you will find plugins in the eBook that could serve you well. Thanks for stopping by and since you are already a member of WPJ, I think you might have received the link already.

Did you get the eBook? What do you think about it? Love to know your opinion… we can always make it better 🙂

Plugins, plugins, couldn’t do without them. Yet they are not so good when it comes to numbers. I can’t help myself adding one after the other; looks like this is some fodder for my temptation.

PS: I’m always forgetting my password with WP junkies and requesting it. Couldn’t “participate” more than requesting forgot password LOL!

32 DiTesco July 10, 2011 at 4:22 pm

Hi Jane. I hear you.. this is exactly what happens to me about plugins. I seem to never get enough 🙂 I do understand that we should not have too much, as we risk hampering our sites performance…

As for your access to WPJ.. have you solved it yet? I can reset your password manually if you want… just let me know.

I did reset it just yesterday Fran. Thanks for asking. Hope I won’t forget it this time 🙂

34 DiTesco July 10, 2011 at 5:24 pm

That’s great.. Just sent you an email 🙂

Hi DiTesco,
thanks for drawing my attention to WordPressJunkies. I love WordPress and the whole plugin industry that has developed around it. I especially like your approach of building a social network for people using WordPress. This not only helps to strengthen the community by creating a feeling of belonging. It is also a very useful tool that WordPress users like myself can put into their arsenal. Just a question, did you use Buddypress or another tool to create WordPressJunkies? Thank you.

36 RonLeyba July 14, 2011 at 6:52 am

Ok I need to get a copy of it. Thanks DiTesco for compiling it for us. Amazing!
