Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

Twitter Tools is a plugin that creates a complete integration between your WordPress blog and your Twitter account. You can do a lot of cool things like create a blog post from each of your tweets, create a daily or weekly digest post of your tweet, create a tweet on Twitter whenever you post in your blog, with a link to the blog post or even post a tweet from your sidebar.

‘Autoblogged’

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

The Autoblogged plugin is a great plugin which helps you automatically add posts to your blog by adding posts from any RSS or Atom feed. The word autoblog has spamming connotations, but the plugin can be effectively used to create focused RSS feeds. You can also add your own comments to the feeds to spice it up with some originality.

Broken link checker plugin

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

The broken link checker plugin for Wordpress is a godsend. One of the things that can really drag you down in your google rankings is having a lot of old posts with broken links. This plugin automatically finds broken links and enables you to either discard the link or to delete the post entirely from the admin panel.

Definitely a time saver and very useful.

A sticky post orderer

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

A Sticky Post Orderer is a plugin I use on a daily basis to help order my posts. For example, if you want to write a blurb at the top of a list of different posts, you can simply list that post at the top using this plugin and ensure that it appears first. Without this plugin I would be lost.

It basically allows you to control the order of your posts in categories. This is a must plug-in for me and helped me get around the problem of ordering my posts which was nagging me for some time. You can download the plugin from here
