4000+ Plugins for WordPress! :!:

If there is anything that I have learned, …  That Is This!!!


BACK UP, BACK UP, BACK UP!

Before you even think about installing a plugin, you better have a backup ready.

Perhaps learning this way may be the best for some of you out there, cause I do know,  … that WAS the  fact for me. :x

Regardless, what I have learned in the process has made me more aware of what to check out BEFORE even trying to install it.  I now spend time googling at least the results of what others have found.  Often, I will find that their are to many negatives on the reviews.  That alone will tell me to stay away from even trying it!

But that is only the start.   …  Then there are those plugins out there that you research and research again that you know after doing so,  …  You know, yes you to need it, BUT   which one?

A great example of this is:  WP-CACHE

Well heck!   there are only at least a dozen of these out there so….     Do you go with:

WP- CACHE

WP CACHE INSPECT

WP CACHE USERS

WP SUPER CACHE

Yes there are more out there!!!    I myself have visited this area a lot, and have come down to those 4.  I have even tried  WP SUPER CACHE.  However I noticed right off the bat that when I was updating my site,  I too got static pages.  So then my question was, do I need this?

Right now the answer for me is NO!

This plug in to the best to my knowledge is only needed if your web hosting account is unable to handle the traffic.   So for now, I’m staying away from it!!

My True Nightmare One Was:

Google Sitemap!!

I do believe,  I do have this MUST HAVE now working

A course, we will not know the outcome from that until a few days from now!

ANYHOW,

The plugins I do have now, and are still testing are:

1.  Add to Any: Share/Bookmark/Email Button

2.  AdSense Manager

3.  Akismet

4.  All in One SEO Pack

5.  Custom Smilies

6.  Google XML Sitemaps

7.  Most Comments

8.  My Page Order

9.  Simple Image Link

10.  Smart 404

11.  Top Commentators Widget

12.  Yet Another Related Posts Plugin

Yep!  WordPress may be the best out there,   however It’s going to take time to master the best!

So, Any Ideas?

Till Our Next Campfire! :P

HAPPY RVING!! :)
