Well there are two links that showcase 11 and 10 fixes and hacks respectively.

Most Desired WordPress Hacks: 11 Common Requests and Fixes: Noupe lists 11 commonly requested WordPress hacks and elegant fixes for them. They include avoiding duplicate content, having category specific menus, sidebar login boxes, most wanted categories etc.

10 WordPress Hacks to make Your Life Easy: Jai lists another 10 hacks to play with. His hack tutorials include adding gravatars to comments, Twitter, image gallery, author bio etc.

Some of these are just tutorials on how features work within WordPress and how to incorporate them into existing themes while others are all our modifications of code in themes and in various other places. None of them look too difficult and some of them can be accomplished with plugins. However, all of them are worth checking out.

    Hartley don’t even think about any wordpress editing – you’re an absolute hack of a webmaster. I saw your site about desserts and it looks like the work of a small child.

    Neat lists! Some stuff we already knew, but some very neat and innovative stuff, as well. Thanks for the links.

    Jai’s gallery info was great. I would like to learn more about wordpress’ built in gallery function. I’m curious about adding more than one gallery to a page. what if you want one main gallery page, with several different galleries to choose from? Like a gallery>albums set up. I would love to not need to use a plugin for this. Does anyone have any links they can share?

    Thanks for sharing this. It’s very useful. I’ve written a post about the combo box hacks at my own site, with a note about accessibility.

    this is a good list. not everything will be of use to everyone, but i’m sure most people will find one or two tweaks that will be handy.

    i’ve already got a couple of these planned for my site!
