    I’m very interested to see if the Simple Sitemap plugin is better than the XML-Sitemap plugin. For instance, does it submit updates to the sitemap to the 4 top search engines? I like the layout of the Simple Sitemap better, but communication with each update to the search engines is important.

    Thanks for this. I’ll definitively use some of these on my site.

    I love wordpress 3.0 but what really sucks is the lack of plugins that support the multi-site network feature. Even some of the more basic, much needed plugins for common site functions such as “sitemaps” are jacked up. I wish there was better support for WP 3.0 multi-site. It’s like deja vu, as this was also a prime concern with WPMU….oi vey.

    Oh~THX for sharing. I do love SimpleSite. It is the most convenient plugin I have ever applied in my own website building. URL Shortener is also practical due to its URL simplicity reducing the time to configure the original lengthy URL address.

    Thanks for these plugin. WordPress Multiple Author Ad management is very useful.
