My favorite WordPress plugins

WordPress plugins
With WordPress you have access to tons of plugins. Some are fantastic and some are not. It can be quite a lot of work to find the good once. That is why I have decided to make a little description of my favorite plugins:

  • Akismet
  • Add Meta Tag
  • Avatar plugin
  • WP PHP Widget
  • Google Analytics Plug-in
  • WP-Polls

Akismet:

Akismet is one plugin you can’t live without if you want people to leave comments on your blog and on the other hand want to keep spammers away.

Add Meta Tag:

The Add Meta Tag plugin easily makes you insert and edit Meta tags for your site without manually editing PHP files. Nice and easy plugin that make it easy for you.

Avatar plugin:

Upload you own avatars to make comments on your WordPress blog more personally.

Google Analytics Plugin:

With the Google Analytics Plugin you can easily put in the Google analytic code at your WordPress blog. Just like with the Meta Tag plugin this make it easy for you to put in your code.

WP PHP Widget:

With WP PHP Widget you can insert PHP code in a widget. Put in a couple of lines with PHP code, and make the result appear in a widget on your blog. Nice and easy.

WP-Polls:

Use WP-Polls to create online multiple choice polls on your WordPress blog. Let people vote on your site for whatever you find interesting.

The Arras Theme

I have just changed my WordPress Theme to the Arras theme tonight. There is still a lot of work to do, but i think it is better than my old theme (twenty Ten). Hope you like it, I know that I do. Feel free to drop me some feedback. You can see more about the Arras theme here. They also have a great forum if you need any help.
