WordPress Must Haves

September 7th, 2006 Comments

A quick list of a few must have additions for WordPress:

  • Sandbox; a self-described theme for themers. It produces semantic and valid XHTML 1.0/Transitional markup, is widget compatible and has the ability to be easily skinned via CSS.
  • Sidebar Widgets; makes it dead simple to add and order your sidebar content with drag-and-drop administration. No need to hack away at the sidebar.php code for the timid.
  • Flickr Photo Album; this plugin will pull in your Flickr photosets and display them as albums on your WordPress site. It will also allow you to easily insert your Flickr photos into your blog posts with just a couple clicks.
  • Ultimate Tag Warrior; allows you to easily tag your posts inside the Write Post page and display your tags in many different ways.
  • Search Everything; did you know that the default WP search doesn’t search pages and comments? I didn’t know that either but this plugin adds that functionality.
