Andy Beal’s Top 21 WordPress Plugins


background image

There are plenty of lists with “top WordPress plugins” around, in fact I also wrote one titled Top 10 Underrated WordPress Plugins.

Once in a while a new list pops up, and this week Andy Beal came out with a really good one, titled 21 of the Best WordPress Plugins for New Blogs. He covers all the basic plugins that a new WordPress install might need, and also offers a bunch of cool ones that I had never seen before.

One example being the No Self Pings. If you allow trackbacks on your blog, you know how annoying it can be when you interlink your posts and they generate trackbacks or pings, right? This plugin fixes the issue.

Check out Andy’s article to check the other 20 plugins!
