Inspired by this list at the all-new Swirlspice, here’s a list of the WordPress plugins being used at this here Intarwebs locale:
- Akismet: killer of spam and purger of pusillanimous pingbackery.
- Extended Comment Options: enables comment or trackback toggle on multiple posts at once.
- Live Comment Preview: just what it says, and “it helps remind folks to close your damn tags.”
- Liz Comment Counter: counts, um, comments. Named for the estimable Liz Strauss.
- Ping Optimizer: keeps WordPress from pinging all over the place just because you redid some of the archives.
- Witty Text: now handles the “It is written” function on the sidebar.
- WP-Super Cache: serves up static pages when the loads get heavy.
There are about a dozen more in deactivated status, some that came with the package, some I tried out and decided not to keep, and some I’m still trying to decipher after a month.
And you should all go visit Swirlspice anyway. It’s her sixth blogiversary, and it’s always worth the trip.
