PollDaddy

One of the best WordPress poll plugins available. Easy to setup and use, and has a built-in post ratings feature for posts and comments.

New2WP Author Box

What this plugin does is utilize the WordPress dashboard profile section, which is so very neglected to my knowledge. It will replace the Yahoo IM field that most people may find rather useless, with a Twitter field.

Authors can then add their Twitter name, if they choose, and using the other existing fields they can add their URL to their website, with a little blurb about themselves in the biographical info box, and obviously their email address. It’s very basic, but does the job for most multi-author sites.

WP-PageNavi

Adds a more advanced paging navigation to your WordPress site.

WooTumblog

Create a tumblr style blog using this plugin. Simply install the plugin, add the easy to use tags to your theme, and your blog will be transformed into a Tumblr-style blog. Create posts direct from the WordPress dashboard, your iPhone, or the familiar WordPress interface.

Pods CMS Framework

Pods is a CMS framework for creating and managing your own content types.

Create your own content types

A pod, or content type, is a named group of input fields. The Pods plugin lets you create your own content types. Instead of with custom post types, each content type gets its own table.

Create a variety of different input fields, including text, paragraph text, date, number, file upload, and relationship (called “pick”) fields. Pick fields are extremely useful if you want to create relationships among your data. One example is if you want to relate an “event” item with one or more “speaker” items.

Easily display your content

There are several ways to get Pods data to show up throughout your site:

  • Add Pod Pages from within the admin area.
  • Add PHP code directly into your WP template files, or wherever else PHP is supported.
  • Use shortcode to display lists of Pod items or details of a Pod item within WP Pages or Posts.
  • The Pods API allows you to retrieve raw data from and save data to the database.

Migrate!

Pods includes a Package Manager, which allows you to import/export your database structure. You can select which features you want to “package up” and export it for easy migration. Pods also includes an easy to use PHP API to manage all types of Pod-related data for complex operations.

Hikari Category Permalink

One of these permalink structure tags is %category%. By default, WordPress always use the category with lowest ID, making %category% impractical for SEO optimization.

Hikari Category Permalink allows post authors to choose among each post’s categories, which of them is used in that post permalink, giving much more flexibility and power to permalinks.

Kitchen Monki (www.kitchenmonki.com) recently announced a beta program for Monki Publisher, a set of API tools for “live recipe” syndication on blogs and other websites that feature recipe content.

Engineered for WordPress bloggers, Monki Publisher is a plug-in that creates a permanent recipe repository that’s searchable via an iTunes-like interface.
