Useful Wordpress Plugins?

Which Wordpress plugins do you use?

Here's a few I like:
  • Yoast's SEO - it's very handy and helps with SEO, as well as leveraging Facebook's social graph stuff etc., NB: It isn't a "magic bullet" for SEO
  • Feed Press - with the death of Feedburner it's a good replacement
  • Main WP - if you're managing multiple Wordpress sites this will help preserve your sanity
  • Wordfence - available in both free and paid versions. A "must have" if you want to avoid security issues with your blog
  • WP Super Cache - caching helps speed up your blog a lot
  • Google Adsense - the official Google plugin for Wordpress makes adding adsense to your site very easy
  • Intagrate Lite - handy if you want to be able to use your Instagram images in your blog easily.
There are literally thousands of plugins available, so the list above is nowhere near comprehensive, but they're some of the ones I use most commonly.

Presumably the files remain reduced?

Well I assume there's two versions of each file .. I guess I could simply look instead of guessing :)

It is the official wordpress plugin so I am assuming it is working OK. To be honest I do not know.
I've been having "similar" issues with the official "instant pages" plugin, which seems to dislike pretty much *any* text formatting ....

Oh I also forgot Leadin from Hubspot. It does not work in LeadPages but in last job it was great as everytime someone filled out a sign up/ contact / demo / subscribe form it would tell you what pages that person previously visited and give you more info on them.
