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.

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.

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.

The difference between a router and an access point

Access Point or Router?

I don’t know how many times I have been asked that question, but it is many times. It is really difficult for many people to understand the difference between an access point and a router. Many people go out and buy a router, when it actually was an access point they needed to get the job done.  In this post I will try to explain the difference between a router and an access point and when you need which.

PSI Secunia – Keep your PC patched

You have properly used Windows Update to security patch your Windows for years now, but what about all the other programs you have installed, that is not from Microsoft. How do you know if they need to be updated? Many computer viruses has changed tactic. They do not attack Windows anymore because most people use the Windows Update Service, but how about Java, Flash or Acrobat Reader? How often do you check for updated on these products?
