Cool WordPress Plugins to Rock Thy Blog!

I never get fed up of searching for new snazzy plugins to make my blog more beautiful. 🙂 A beautiful blog makes you want to blog more effectively or so I believe. You might want to check out my other wordpress plugin posts like this one.

On to this editions useful and cool wordpress plugins 🙂

Different Posts Per Page: This is a plugin that lets you define how many posts you want to display per page. I find this very useful since I want to display all the posts in the archives page, but only 7 on the homepage, 5 on the results page and likewise. Neat.

Google Sitemaps: I used to have another plugin for this, but this one is more sexy, but they do leave a lot of self links on the newly created sitemap. Kinda okie.

Simple Tags: Last month or so, the tags system on my blog broke down and I did not even know about it until last week when I saw about 188 not found(404 errors) on my blog! Upon investigation, the wordpress upgrade had left simple tagging plugin broken. I was mad, since the plugin itself has been stopped by the author. Fortunately, Simple Tags is a take off the same plugin, but its got a whole lot of functionality built into it. SEXY to say the least. In love with it already.

AskApache Search Engine Verification: Since my site was broken, sitemap in error. I removed my site from the Google Webmaster Central and added it again. This plugin helped my verify wordpress blog using meta tags.

Hopefully that rounds up the set of plugins I currently use for my blog. Did you find anything useful here? Do share in your thoughts.
