Each week, I’ll do a different theme with Thursday Thirteen, just for this blog. If you have any suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments section 🙂
1. All-In-One SEO Pack ➡ Katy has a much better entry on it, including an in-depth how-to on using it.
2. Akismet ➡ One of the best WordPress plugins out there, designed for spam control. Worth every second of having it!!
3. Full Text Feed ➡ Pretty self-explanatory. Instead of showing the cut-off of a post, it shows the full-feed, no matter what.
4. Link Limits ➡ You can control how many links are listed in a comment before it’s flagged as spam. It also disables BBCode, which doesn’t work in blog comments anyway.
5. Popularity Contest ➡ It broke with 2.5, though it works for me, if it’s installed previously, before the upgrade. It’s what the percentages mean at the bottom of each post. It’s a way of tracking which posts are more popular than others.
6. Related Posts ➡ Exactly what it says. It brings up a list of related posts. Sometimes, you’re going 😯 and wondering why they’re related, but it’s based on tags and tag-usage.
7. Three Strikes and Your Out ➡ Closes comments and trackbacks across the board to IP addresses that are behaving badly. Another great spam protection plugin.
8. Twitter Tools ➡ I spoke about this one in a previous post, and I absolutely adore it!!
9. WP-DB Back-up ➡ An invaluable plugin. Backs up your blog for you. Trust me, smartest thing you could ever do is back-up your blog. Do it OFTEN!!
10. WP Notable ➡ Add social bookmark links to each blog entry. Some people complain about them, but honestly, not every blog reader knows about them, so it’s good to have them.
11. WP Stats ➡ Another plugin that requires a wordpress.com API code, but one that’s worth it. Tracks views, post/page views, referrers, and clicks.
12. Tag Suggest Thing ➡ Not sure what tags to use? This gives you the best ideas.
13. Subscribe to Comments ➡ An extremely useful plugin, especially if you respond to comments in the post itself.
The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others’ comments. It’s easy, and fun! Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!
