Overview of WordPress Plugin Series

This is last post in my first wordpress plugin series. Rather than making your list larger by suggesting more plugins, in this post I will write summary of things which changed after this series experiment.

First and most important, now this blog allows its commentators to edit their comments as suggested by Johnson & other readers. I will also enable paged navigation for archive pages soon, as suggested by Pavan.

Also while preparing for this series, I revisited broken link checker plugin. I stopped using it few months back after it broke itself with a wordpress version upgrade in past. I am using it now again. 🙂

Now after giving away list of my favorite plugins, I request wordpress bloggers here to share their favorite plugins.

Apart from this, personally I enjoyed this series writing experiment. It turned out to be more time-consuming than what I had expected. Thats why other topic got less attention in last week.

I will give some extra time in advance for my next series so this won’t happen in future again. Meanwhile, I would love to know what you like to read in next series. Few topics that are confusing me are AdSense, Ad Networks, Gmail, SEO tipc, Blogging tipc, Security (Hacking), etc.

Waiting for your feedback,

-Rahul Bansal 🙂

So, here goes my choices:

1. Monetizing our website/blogs and traffic tipc – for me and fellow bloggers.

2. Security – for other readers and fans of you who may be easy targets for online attacks and id theft.

Congrats dear on completing your first series post really nice to know that you take comments seriously and thanks for the mention. 🙂

Now one suggestion regarding your series writing as you said it is really time consuming so i suggest you to write on one series in a month this way you wud get time for your other topics also… 🙂

My choice of topics:

1.As Pawan mentioned above some tips for Monetizing your blog, im really thankful for your post on how to show ads after the first post 🙂

2.Secondly i would like to know that how we can modify our WP install in such a way that it takes less time to load means faster on dialups also, for this which codes shud we remove from our WP files so it consumes less server resources.[i know that there are many such codes in WP which are not necessary but they are there so how to remove them? ]

and one more thing the comment editing thing is really awesome… im lovin it 😉

@To: ALL
Thanks for nice feedback.
So here is my plan…
I will post Adsense series in september first week and other money making tips in third week of september.
If I get time I would love to write series on security first, but I don’t think I will get time for it. 🙁
In next 2 weeks, I will post more wordpress tips as I am currently working on 4 different projects related to wordpress. 🙂
