  1. My favourite plugin? That is a task specific question. Like seo ultimate is my favourite seo plugin. But the list is huge!

  2. Cool biscuits. Congratulations on the update. When can those of us who bought through wp-tao.com expect updates?

    On you book page 165, you speak about Google Reader… Google has closed this service in June 2013

  4. My favorite plugin? PODS – for sure. Now I just need to really learn how to use it effectively! :) Hope I win!!!

  5. My favorite plugin: NextGEN gallery. Congrats on the update!

  6. Favorite Plugin? Favorite color? Who’s better Clapton or Page? – Advanced Custom Fields.

  7. My favorite plugin is the premium version of CommentLuv. (There is a free version available that works well especially for new blogs that aren’t getting a lot of comments yet.)

    My favorite free plugin is Widget Logic. It’s a wonderful tool for customizing pages for a different look.

    BTW – Jeff, I’d like to thank you for so quickly sending a new password to my new email address. (I purchased this book back in 2010 and no longer use that domain. That really is life-time support!)

  8. Tough call! Pods is the plugin I install first on every new website, it’s a damn fine tool. I also absolutely love Polylang for multilingual sites, it’s awesome.

    My favourite plugin with which I can’t run my site’s is WordPress SEO by Yoast. It does work of many plugins like sitemaps, google authorship, breadcrumbs, twitter cards and facebook meta.

    And I would love to grab a free copy of this amazing book ;)

  12. My favorite plugin: WP Super Cache. With this plugin, the cpu usage of WordPress will reduce.

    Hope to get the great book!

  13. My favorite plugin at the moment is the All-in-One Event Calendar (Timely) – super powerful yet user-friendly!

  14. It would be hard to choose one favorite plugin for me, but I’d be glad to mention Force Regenerate Thumbnails as one of them. Very useful at development stage.

    Akismet is simply my favorite WordPress plugin :)
