My Recomended WordPress Plugins

One of the best things with the WordPress blogging platform is the great number of plugins available. They allow you to customize and fine-tune your site to the extremes. Personally I use a wide range of plugins, some of which helps the outward appearance of the site, others improve the admin interface. As a thumbs up to the plugin developers, and to give you a chance to see what I use, here’s the plugins I got right now.

There are 35 plugins used: 32 active plugins and 3 inactive plugins.
