These are Wordpress Plug-ins I currently (or used to) use.  Some themes do these functions for you, so not all plug-ins will be useful to you.  I will try to keep this up to date as new plug-ins come out or change, so this page is a work in progress.



  • Akismet - Spam Filter (you need an api key, free for small/ non-corporate blogs)
  • Subscribe to Comments - Allows users to subscribe to future comments on your post
  • Disqus - Provides Spam, Subscriptions and other social features to comments


  • WP Tweet Button - Automatically adds the new Twitter Button to posts and pages
  • Sociable - adds social links to the end of posts
  • Like - Facebook like button plug-in with lots of options
  • Sharebar - Adds a bar that slides down the side with share buttons (like tweet button, Facebook, etc)
