As many of you know – plugins can add significant functionality to your website. For instance there is a plugin that will add an entire forum to your site (Simple:Press) and there is another one that will allow your visitors to contact you via a customizable form (Contact Form 7).
What if you were just looking for a few plugins to fancy up your site a little bit or maybe add a small piece of functionality or info? Well they exist as well and sometimes it is the simple touches that really finish a site off.
Here are a few of my favorites:
- Shockingly Simple Favicon changes your sites favicon – that is the small graphic that shows up in the address bar of your web browser when your on a site. This even sticks when you switch themes after installing it.
- Simple Feed Copyright inserts a copyright notice at the end of full text articles in your RSS feed.
- Branded Login Screen lets you add your own graphical logo or brand to your login screen.
- Blog Copyright (BC) inserts a copyright notice in your websites footer. It automatically updates the year range each new year and prevents you from having to manually go in and provide an update to the date range.
- WP Relative Date uses terms like ‘Today’, ‘Yesterday’, ‘2 Days Ago’, ‘2 Weeks Ago’, ‘2 ‘Seconds Ago’, ‘2 Minutes Ago’, ‘2 Hours Ago’ to describe when a post was written instead of just the date and time.
So what are some of your favorite simple plugins for WordPress?
