With the recent release of WordPress 2.8 Baker I thought a good “Five” series entry would be to highlight five plugins that have been updated for WordPress 2.8 compatibility.

These are not in any specific categories like previous “Five” posts but just a sampling of those already showing compatibility with WordPress 2.8.  A complete list of compatible plugins is available here for your review as well.

Socialize This – Socialize This is a WordPress plugin that allows the user to easily generate Social Icons and spread to word about their blog posts. It works essentially out-of-the-box with little to no configuration required.


WP-Twitter – WP-Twitter is a plugin that creates a integration between your WordPress blog and your Twitter account that allows you to post a tweet from the WordPress Admin Screens, including option to reduce the URL before sending as well as a Widget for displays yours latest tweets in your WordPress blog.


WP-Content Protector – Protects your blog content from getting copied by disabling right click on your blog and also disabling selection of text so that no one can simply copy and paste the content of your blog in there blog or site.


Theme Options – This plugin manages theme customization. Everything is managed in the WordPress Backend. Code snippets can be activated, copied, created, deactivated, deleted, edited, and uploaded.

Smart Archives Reloaded – Smart Archives Reloaded is an enhanced version of the Smart Archives plugin by Justin Blanton.  This plugin has an easy setup – no code editing required and it has better caching – no waiting after a post is published for it to be in your archives.


So which of your favorite plugins have already been updated for WordPress 2.8 Baker compatibility?
