All in One SEO Pack

Out-of-the-box SEO for your WordPress blog.

Author Avatars List

This must have plugin if you have multiable authors or what to show a list of commetaters.

This plugin makes it easy to display lists of user avatars on your (multiuser) blog. It also allows to insert single avatars for blog users or any email address into a post or page. (Great for displaying an image of someone you’re talking about.)

Avatar lists can be inserted into your sidebar by adding a widget or into posts/pages by using a shortcode. The plugin comes with a tinymce editor plugin which makes inserting shortcodes very easy.

Both shortcode and widget can be configured to…

■Show a custom title (widget only)
■Only show specific user groups and/or hide certain users
■Limit the number of users shown
■Change the sort order of users or show in random order
■Adjust the size of user avatars
■Optionally show a user’s name or biography
■Show users from the current blog, all blogs or a selection of blogs (on WPMU/Multisite)
■Group users by their blog (when showing from multiple blogs), and show the blog name above each grouping (experimental feature).
The plugin makes use of built in wordpress (core) functions to retrieve user information and get avatars.

Single user avatars can be inserted using the show_avatar shortcode and configured to…

■Adjust the size of the user avatar.
■Align the avatar left, centered or right.

Live Blogging

To see this plugin in action, you can watch this screencast: http://www.pling.org.uk/static/Live_Blogging_for_WordPress_2.0.swf

Live Blogging is a plugin developed to support blogs that are doing live micro blogging of running events, such as major sport events or tech conferences. (such as the Roses sporting tournament at the University of York).

Using WordPress 3.0’s custom post types, the plugin allows you to create these micro blog entries in a stripped down version of the normal post edit screen. These micro blog entries then get included in a post which has been activated as the microblog.

By default, the plugin uses AJAX polling to allow your readers to instantly update what they are viewing, including any new comments posted on the post. For professional bloggers, Meteor is supported, which gives the smoothest updating experience for your viewers and also significantly reduces the load on your server.

Additionally, the plugin also supports integration with Twitter – if activated, the first 139 characters of each live blog entry will be posted to Twitter when they are made.

Using this plugin will give you an advantage over your competitors if you’re blogging from live events – your readers will get updates quicker, and it will integrate into your blog better than competing systems, such as CoverItLive.
