WordPress, as most of us experience, is so strong and flexible. It is hard to think of a website that can't be brought to life with it.
Besides this power, it is still simple which is great. This simplicity sometimes ends up in some non-existing features which would actually be nice if they were available when needed -seems like the definition of plugins: )-.
As a designer/developer who spend lots of time with WordPress, I want to share a list of plugins which I use for almost every WordPress setup and they end up saving lots of time.
First of all, of course, I'll begin with a shameless self-promotion. The first plugin (Reporteur) is developed by me but I assure you that it fits the title of this post perfectly (else, I'm sure that the editor would probably remove it without even me knowing).
Oh, I'm also going to include the author's names, especially for avoiding mix-ups. There are many plugins so closely named but so far apart on features, usefulness and quality.
It is a simple Google Analytics reporting tool.
If you want to get your information right in the WordPress admin instead of going to the Google Analytics website, this is for you.
The plugin gives a basic information about your website (which were useful enough for my family and friends who forced and tortured me to create this plugin).
This is a stable Google Analytics code including plugin.
We all know that, things work by just copy-pasting the Analytics code to the footer. Or was it better to the header? And how do we track outgoing link clicks or downloads?
Well, with this plugin, you don't need to worry about all that.
