I just designed and programmed my Spelman College 10 Year Reunion class website, and in the process I learned about a few really handy dandy plugins I want to tell you about.
1. Reveal IDs – Reveals hidden IDs in Admin interface that have been removed with WordPress 2.5 (formerly known as Entry IDs in Manage Posts/Pages View for WP 2.5). See Options Page for options and information.
2. Theme My Login – Themes the WordPress login, registration and forgot password pages according to your theme.
3. Admin Thumbnails – If your theme supports the thumbnail feature introduced in WordPress 2.9, this plugin will display attached thumbnails on the admin area’s manage posts and manage pages screen.
4. Advanced Custom Fields – Fully customise WordPress edit screens with powerful fields. Boasting a professional interface and a powerfull API, it’s a must have for any web developer working with WordPress. Field types include: Wysiwyg, text, textarea, image, file, select, checkbox, page link, post object, date picker, color picker, repeater, flexible content, gallery and more!
5. Cimy User Extra Fields – Add some useful fields to registration and user’s info
6. Public Post Preview – Enables you to give a link to anonymous users for public preview of any post type before it is published.
7. Post Thumbnail Editor – Individually manage your post thumbnails.
8. Responsive Slider – A responsive content slider for integrating into themes via a simple shortcode.
9. WP-Members – WP access restriction and user registration. For more information and to download the Users Guide, visit http://butlerblog.com/wp-members. A Quick Start Guide is also available. WP-Members(tm) is a trademark of butlerblog.com.
10. WP Better Emails – Beautify the default text/plain WP mails into fully customizable HTML emails.
