WordCamp UK 2010: ‘Great Plugins (WOW Plugins?)’ by Michael Kimb Jones


WordCamp UK 2010: 'Great Plugins (WOW Plugins?)' by Michael Kimb Jones

On Day 2 at WordCamp UK 2010, Michael Kimb Jones (@mkjones) presented a list of WordPress Plugins those are really useful and excellent plugins people may have missed or are just unaware of. For example the much talked about RoleScoper plugin which was highlighted during his NHS presentation and the new Inline-Comment tool being developed by Mike Little (@mikelittlezed1).

Free Plugins

  • Import HTML Pages Imports well-formed static HTML files into WordPress. It requires PHP 5. This plugin will import a directory of files as either pages or posts. You may specify the HTML tag (e.g. <body>, <div id="content">, or <td width="732">) or Dreamweaver template region (e.g. ‘Main Content’) containing the content you want to import.
  • Role Scoper for WordPress Role Scoper is a comprehensive enrichment for capability enforcement and administration in WordPress. Assign reading, editing or administration roles to users or groups on a page-specific, category-specific or other content-specific basis.
  • WordPress Beta Tester This plugin provides an easy way to get involved with Beta testing WordPress. Once installed it will enable you to upgrade your blog to the latest Beta or Release candidate at the click of a button using the built in upgrader.
  • After the Deadline After the Deadline helps you write better and spend less time editing. Click the proofread button in the visual or HTML editor toolbar to check spelling, style, and grammar.
  • Redirection Redirection is a WordPress plugin to manage 301 redirections, keep track of 404 errors, and generally tidy up any loose ends your site may have. This is particularly useful if you are migrating pages from an old website, or are changing the directory of your WordPress installation.
  • WP-Table Reloaded WP-Table Reloaded enables you to create and manage tables in your WP’s admin area. No HTML knowledge is needed. A comfortable backend allows to easily edit table data.
  • GigPress GigPress is a powerful live performance listing and management plugin designed for musicians and other performers. Manage all of your upcoming and past performances right from within the WordPress admin, and display them on your site using simple shortcodes, PHP template tags, or the GigPress widget on your WordPress-powered website.
  • WP Geo WP Geo is a Google Maps plugin for WordPress which enables you to easily attribute a location and map to a post or page.
  • TinyMCE Advanced This plugin adds 15 plugins to TinyMCE: Advanced HR, Advanced Image, Advanced Link, Context Menu, Emotions (Smilies), Date and Time, IESpell, Layer, Nonbreaking, Print, Search and Replace, Style, Table, Visual Characters and XHTML Extras.
  • My Page Order My Page Order allows you to set the order of pages through a drag and drop interface. The default method of setting the order page by page is extremely clumsy, especially with a large number of pages.
  • Mingle WordPress Plugin The simple way to turn your WordPress blog into a Social Network. Mingle uses your standard WordPress website and standard WordPress theme to create profile pages, user friending, profile page posts, profile activities, social comments, email notifications (with privacy settings) and a full directory of members.
  • BuddyPress BuddyPress is completely free and open source. Unlike hosted services, BuddyPress allows you to stay in control of your site and create a totally customized, unique experience.
  • White Label CMS The White Label CMS plugin is for developers who want to give their clients a more personalised and less confusing CMS.
  • WP-CMS Post Control Post Control from WordPress CMS Modifications gives you complete control over your write options for every user level/role. It not only allows you to hides unwanted items like custom fields, trackbacks, revisions etc. but also gives you a whole lot more control over how WordPress deals with creating content.
  • Members The Members plugin is a user, role, and content management plugin. Its purpose is to make WordPress a more powerful CMS by giving you fine-grain control over the users of your site.
  • Query Posts Widget The Query Posts WordPress widget is finally here. I figured after I’ve let you all beta test this thing for over a month, it was about time. This widget has everything you’ll ever need to show posts on your site without touching code.

Paid / Commercial Plugins
