    My Top 10 WordPress Plugins...

    Hi All -

    I am going to give you my top ten, links to their websites, and refer you to some how to articles (sometimes they come with their own "learning curve"):
    • AdSense Manager - A must if you run Adsense ads on your blogs
    • Configurable Tag Cloud - If you like tag clouds (and find your readers do), then the stylistic control this plugin gives you is great for design integration
    • Dagon Design SiteMap Generator - This creates a sitemap you display (not the secret one you show only to Google)
    • Google XML Sitemaps - This creates the secret map that only Google sees and is updated each time you post
    • HeadSpace 2 - A sort of Mega SEO plugin with a lot of control over Meta data, titles, descriptions, stylesheets and other goodies (take a good look at the "other goodies"). Overview Tutorial.
    • OneClick Installer - Install plugins AND themes with one click! This is a plugin and a Firefox extension that work together to make your life a lot easier -- no FTP required. Installation requires chmod work -- see tutorial.
    • Popularity Contest - Learn which posts you write are the most popular... a great way to get automatic feedback for future blog story ideas. You can display the most popular in a sidebar widget.
    • Sphere - Here's a plugin that ties you into "sphere" of influence with well known bloggers and new agencies, by related content. See overview article. TIP: Once you install Sphere, use it yourself to find out who's writing similar articles, then visit those blogs and make comments -- what goes around, comes around... in the Sphere.
    • WordPress Automatic Upgrade - I've used this one several times... and it works great. Make sure you do ALL the steps as presented, and backup as you go.
    • WP Cache - This plugin helps speed up the user experience at your WP blog by caching pages. You have good administrative control of what gets cached and when.
    What are your top 10?

    Any plugins for generating a widget for custom categories. I have about 30 categories under the category header. I need to break them up to make it more user friendly.

    Do not use WP Cache, cos-html-cache used to generate HTML on the server significantly ease the pressure on the results page included in about one second
