Three plugins for WordPress

Terrific Trio


The WordPress plugin repository contains many nifty plugins. We take a closer look at three in particular that can extend the functionality of your WordPress installation.

The ability to extend WordPress’s default functionality via plugins is a boon for owners of selfhosted blogs, and the official plugin repository contains hundreds of plugins that can teach your blog a few clever tricks or add a whole new layer of functionality.

This embarrassment of riches leads to the perennial question of choice. Of course, which plugins you choose depends largely on your particular needs, but at least three modules are worth installing in practically any WordPress usage scenario.
