Running your WordPress blog can feel like a full-time job sometimes. We’ve compiled an A-Z list of more than 50 plugins to help you streamline everything you need to do out back. As with any plugins list, don’t install them all at once!

rekkerd.org is also powered by WordPress, so I’ll recommend plugins as well.

  1. Simple Tagging, either this or Ultimate Tag Warrior (UTW) to tag your posts so that people will be able to find and browse related posts with ease.
  2. Search and Replace, it’s a very powerful tool to find and replace text in all your posts. Very handy, but be careful what you do!
  3. Akismet, checks your comments against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not. Works very well for me.
  4. iMP Download, allows you to manage download links inside wordpress admin. I use (a modified version of) this to offer the plugins and samples on rekkerd.org and keep track of download stats.

Be sure to test these plugins well with your WordPress setup, some plugins may bite others and cause some problems.
