Tell Us Your Favorite Plugins


We all have our go-to plugins when launching WordPress … you know, the ones that make your life immensely easier – and your blog easier to use.

And then, of course, it depends on the blog as to what other plugins I install. Maybe Lightbox Gallery, or eShop, or Collapsible Archive.

There are other obscure plugins that I have yet to use but look interesting. Ones like WP-Invoice or the Ebay Sale Lister.

It seems lately, if I need something for my website, it’s only a plugin away! We have the top 10 downloaded plugins, but we want to hear from you. What are your favorite WordPress plugins? What should we be installing today?
