Plugins A-Z 27 Introduction

Wordpress is the most popular blogging software on the planet with an ever increasing amount of Wordpress plugins available it makes sense to have a resource to refer to when it comes to finding them.

Sure you could spend hours and hours finding these plugins on the Internet, but how much is your time worth?

I have been using Wordpress blogs for about 3 years now and totally love it! It has evolved into a powerful Content Management Solution as well as a blogging platform which is enhanced by the number of plugins that make it such a powerful web publishing platform.

Ive used Wordpress in many different niches and markets and different purposes, it doesnt matter what you use Wordpress for, the plugins listed in this guide will transform your blog into a powerhouse.

Some of the plugins are repeated as they are relevant for more than one category. There are also some pretty awesome Premium plugins that you have to pay for, which weve put at the beginning of each category under a green „Premium heading.

Also, Id like to point you to a free service for fixing plugins. Upgrading to a newer version of Wordpress can be a frustrating experience when some plugins suddenly dont work and the author doesnt update them. Well, Maxblogpress are offering a solution to this problem:

Happy Wordpressing!
