This is list of personal favorite plugins for wordpress. I’m using it on sites that I created. Plugins are mainly free but there is two premium that I buy from Codecanyon.
Free Plugins in wordpress repository:
- Lightbox Plus ColorBox by Dan Zappone – With this plugin you can handle beautiful image overlay. It is simple and yet very complex for advance users. I’m using it on every site I made.
- MP6 by MP6 Team (Matt Mullenweg, Mel Choyce, Isaac Keyet, Empireoflight) – This is plugin for wordpress admin area. Using it on all sites and it’s really work inspiring with nice retina ready icons…
- Google Analytics by Kevin Sylvestre – Simple plugin for themes without google analytics support, simple insert you ID and get starting.
- Flexible Posts Widget by dpe415 – Although there is million similar plugins in wp repository, this one is my favorite. It’s displays standard posts or cpt in any widget area and is easy adjustable for almost any purpose. I’m using it on this site: http://www.knjiznica-kutina-zf.com.hr for displaying movies on home page from specific category (taxonomy).
- Event Organizer by Stephen Harris – Great plugin for creating and managing events. Creates custom post type and custom taxonomy, you can add date, time, event category, event tag, event place (google maps included). Events can be displayed in four widgets or custom page types. There is premium version also.
- WP-PageNavi by Lester ‘GaMerZ’ Chan & scribu – This is something essential and it should be built in wordpress install. I’m using this one on almoust any site where is need for page navigation. With WP PageNavi Style, for those with less CSS experience, you have beautiful and stylish page navigation.
- Advance WP Query Search Filter by TC – This one is super commando assassin for filtering the search through various elements like custom post types, custom taxonomies etc.
Premium Plugins bought on CodeCanyon:
- User Bookmarks by CG Cookie, INC – “Complete bookmarking system that gives your users a way to save their favorite posts to their own personal bookmarks list…” There is not much to add, using it on http://www.knjiznica-kutina-zf.com.hr for creating lending lists for movies.
- wpDataTables by cjbug – For easy and interactive tables in wordpress. It uses excel or csv file, sql query, xml, json, etc. for source input. Graph render possible. Great plugin that worth every $ paid.
