Essential WordPress Plugins

There are certain WordPress plugin’s that will make your life much easier. Here’s a list of a few that I install on just about any new setup…

  • BackWPup – Always backup!
  • W3 Total Cache
  • Jetpack by – Lots of little things (need an account on
  • Google XML Sitemaps
  • Automatic SEO Links – Not for SEO, but for automatically linking when you forget
  • Akismet – To automatically check for comment spam (need an account on akismet)
  • Duplicate Post – If you frequently start with an existing post as a template this is a lifesaver
  • Publish to Schedule – If you tend to write in bursts and want posts automatically scheduled out for you
  • Redirection – Sometimes you just don’t want to mess with Apache redirects
  • Shortcode Exec PHP – For when you need the power of PHP
  • WP-Members – Members Only
