jQuery Lightbox for Native Galleries

Makes the native WordPress galleries introduced in WordPress 2.5 use jQuery Lightbox by balupton to display the fullsize images.

Disable Theme Preview

Disables the cool but sometimes annoying theme preview feature added in WordPress 2.6. You’ll still be able to preview themes by clicking a link located below the theme’s description.

Direct Image URLs For Galleries

Modifies thumbnails to link to fullsize image instead of the page containing the medium thumbnail.


Statrix plugin collects data about your blog visits. It creates charts and lists of the full data history in real-time, which you can browse, filter and export immediately after plugin activation. The plugin keeps the full visits history, so you can make reports about any period of time you want.

Version Information

This plugin displays version and configuration information for WordPress, PHP, MySQL, and the web server. A summary is displayed in the Site Admin dashboard and more details are displayed under a Version Information page under the Site Admin Plugins menu.

Peter’s Collaboration Emails

Enhance the “Submit for Review” feature for Contributor users in WordPress 2.3 and above. This plugin enables automatic e-mails to the relevant users when posts are pending and when they are approved.

Peter’s Custom Anti-Spam Image

This differs from the other image plugins in that it creates an anti-spam jpg using random words of your choice (adding a fun element) and it does not require visitors to have cookies or JavaScript enabled. It also generates audio files for visually impaired visitors.

Extra Feed Links

Adds links to the specific feed for each page type in WordPress. Ex: Comments Feed for single posts and pages; Category Feed for category pages etc.

    I’ve used Peter’s anti-spam image on a few niche sites, and more than being just fun, it adds a nice touch. I’ve changed the list of words to ones relating to the theme of the site in question.

    Commentors really appreciate it a lot, and it;s brought a few smiles.

    The Lightbox galleries plugin is excellent. Props to the author, and thanks for sharing that with us.

    I guess the Version Information plugin is very similar to Lester’s WP-ServerInfo

    Thx for the list
