One of the major advantages of blogging with WordPress is that there is a wide variety of plugins available. I thought I would briefly share the plugins that I make use of on this blog.
- Acronyms automatically finds acronyms and wraps <acronym> HTML tags around it.
- Akismet come standard and does a very good job at filtering out comment spam.
- All in One SEO Pack helps optimize things a little bit for search engines.
- FD Feedburner Plugin connects my blog’s feed with the Feedburner service.
- Google XML Sitemaps creates a sitemap of pages, helping search engines to find all the pages.
- Ozh’ Who Sees Ads allows for detailed control of the people who will see advertisements.
- Permalink Redirect makes sure that pages/posts are only viewed at their official permalink address. This helps with SEO and with blog migration.
- WP Super Cache puts less load on my server by caching pages.
- Yet Another Related Post Plugin is the first related post plugin which I’ve considered to do a pretty good job at automatically finding related posts to display.
I’ve also used a variety of lightbox, thickbox, and other such pluggins, but I’m not sure which one I would recommend.
As a web developer, I’m always on the lookout for tools that help me develop great web apps. Today I found a tool to help manage an SQLite database. It is developed as a Firefox add-on, and it is called SQLite Manager. Although it runs under the Firefox web browser, it provides a nice interface for managing an SQLite database that is local to your system. If you are into managing such database, I suggest this add-on.
