Best WP Plugins
Guys and gals
I just wanted to drop a little note on WA to share an article I found yesterday when searching Google for must-have plugins (beware, it's long - took me two days to go through them all!): http://www.wpbeginner.com/category/plugins/
Now, I did not ever intend to go crazy installing a heap of plugins, but I wanted to know if there was anything out there that would make my life easier and/or my website better. And there was. Here's what I installed:
Broken Link Checker - I hate clicking a link and getting an error and this plugin will prevent that.
Feature a Page Widget - I plan to rotate a featured article each week in my sidebar and see if I can drive some traffic to older posts/pages.
Po.st - now this one is interesting! You can monetize your social icons! Each share your visitor clicks on generates a small 300x250 ad which pops up next to the icon. It's not a pop-up in the traditional sense, but a small window. Go check it out!!
Publish to Schedule - really handy for when I go on holiday at the end of Feb!
Wordpress Popular Posts - displays a widget showing the most popular posts. You can choose from number of comments, number of visits, or average daily visit.
I have a few more book marked for future use, as and when the site needs them.
So, I am now seeing that the possibilities are endless with WP and if you can ask the question, then you can probably find a plugin that answers it.
Hope this helps those of you starting out like I am!
