    Absolutely brilliant, Andrew! I can’t wait to get comfy with a movie and go through your list of 101 plug-ins. Wonder what’s in store for me? Things I didn’t know were available and can’t live without once I know probably.
    Thank you!

    The trouble with adding plugins is you lose track of what’s really useful and what’s a gimmick. And when you upgrade some stop working or mess up your site. Before I add any of these I will have to ask myself – will this really make a big difference?! Which ones to you swear by?

      Some are personal, aren’t they? Some just make your blog look more professional.

      I try not to add gimmicky ones!

      Which ones have you tried and then thought, “not for me”?

    How do you integrate WordPress blog with Facebook?

    Do you use a special plugin to post to your Facebook wall every time you post to your blog?

    Or is there a setting in Facebook that should be turned on to enable this?

    • Andrew February 1, 2011 at 11:06 am #


      I use this FB application:

      You simply add your blog RSS feed and it automatically posts on your FB page.

        Hello Andrew, just wanted to say that I loved this wordpress plugin list and also I want to implement Facebook comment system in my blog. Do you think that you can show me some links with tutorials?

        Thanks a lot, keep up the good work.

        • Andrew June 2, 2011 at 10:30 am #


          There are a few Facebook comments plugins.

          Simply do a search for that term and you’ll find some.
