I say Plugins very loosely and I mean plugin, hack, mod list. So what do you think are THE definitive plugins for WordPress? Which are the plugins that you simply could not do without? Are there any that are hidden gems that I have not noticed? Please limit your suggestions and links to WordPress version 1.2 and above only.

What new plugin, when and if developed, would become the definitive plugin for WordPress (spam panacea notwithstanding)?

    Current plugins that I depend on:
    1) Scripturizer 1.3 by Scott Yang
    2) WP Statistics by Ryan Callaghan
    3) Your SpamService 1.0beta

    Plugin I’d really like to see:
    1) A solid, non-tempermental, WYSIWYG editing plugin
    2) I’m sure there’s more, but I’m drawing a blank at the moment…

    If I was allowed only one plugin, I’d have to say it would be Dr Dave’s Spam Karma plugin – its so useful at taking out the trash, er I mean spam.

    I am in love with Spam Karma as well. I haven’t been hit with the amount of spam that some people have, approximately 80 a day, but SK is still indispensable. My second choice would be the WordPress Plugin Manager itself, though I have only used it to install SK. I am using WordPress 1.3 alpha.

    The plugins I use are on their own page (plugins), but my favorites, in no particular order, are:

    1. Acronym Replacer, replaces acronyms with acronym tags and full title attributes.

    2. link clicker, to autolink your links. A lil’ buggy, I should fix it… I am busy…

    3. Spam stopgap extreme, my all-powerful antispam hashcash-like solution.

    4. Plugins used, to list all your plugins in use.

    5. Subscribe to comments, which I do by default on my site. Leave a comment, get email…

    - Get Custom Field Values — saved me when I needed to get Custom Comment text working with my previously added silly custom fields
    Hide/Cut post text — there’s things people don’t need to see…
    Run PHP inside posts; making “static” pages is a hoot with this
    – At A Glance

    Recently commented posts comes to mind as the most important plugin I use. I also really like WordPress RSS Aggregator (http://laughingmeme.org/archives/002203.html)

    Dream plug-ins:

    An easy to install “asides” plugin (never have gotten Matt’s Asides to work with Kubrick…)

    A del.icio.us/flickr like tag generator. This wouldn’t replace the category system, just compliment it.

    The plugins I use are:

    Google Sitemaps
    WP-Backup
    WP-Shortstat (though mine is heavily self modified)
    Crawl Page Generator
