WordPress 2.0 plugins



One of the real hesitations I had in moving current sites to WordPress 2.0 was the thought of “what plugins will break?” From what I saw the supported plugins list was short and so was the “broken” plugins list. Which said many were likely untested. So, after I installed a new wordpress 2.0 setup… I started copying over some of my favorite plugins (from my 1.5.2 sites) to see how they did.


For starters, one that I use quite a bit is wp-stattraq, which I’m glad to say worked without a hitch in WordPress 2.0 it’s been a while since the plugin has been updated, and there is google-analytics, but there are still some things I like about wp-stattraq and am glad to keep around.

Obviously, I use Google Adsense in this site and my others (sometimes I probably put them a bit too thick…)…. so a few of the tools are related to that… Adsense Logger (dead link/no new updates) which no longer is being developed is a handy plugin that works well with 2.0, adsense-deluxe also works with 2.0

I had a couple plugins that had extra “stuff” in the template pages and without the plugin, the layout would hang at that point. The first is the “breadcrumb” navigation plugin which gives category links at the top of a page. (Posted in …. category) Also a “this date in history” plugin.

Two other plugins I like are a Google Sitemaps plugin, which automatically generates and updates your google sitemap (pings the google server as well.) Also, the wp-amazon plugin gives convenient access to create and insert amazon.com product links from your posts.
