In no particular order, here are some of the WordPress plugins that we’ve found useful.
- sCategory Permalink — Allows you to set which category to use in the permalink
- WP Random Header — This simple plugin by Callum Macdonald automatically rotates the header images for the Twenty Ten theme. We’re using it on this site — reload to see it in action.
- WP-Table Reloaded — Manages tables for your posts and pages, with lots of options like row striping and column sorting
- Flickr Blog This to Draft — If you use Flickr’s BlogThing to send photos to your blog, the default behavior is to immediately publish the post. With this plugin, the posts will be draft so you can check formatting, add categories, etc., before publishing
- Broken Link Checker for WordPress — Alerts you to broken links, lots of options
- Google XML Sitemaps Generator — Creates and maintains a file for Google to use for indexing
- Facebook Like Button — Adds button to pages and posts
