WordPress is the most popular blogging tool available. And blogging isn't just for personal use now. It has turned into a great marketing tool that can help spread the word about your product or service. Naturally, if you decide to take on a blog for your company, you'll want to make sure it has as much in the way of features and flexibility as you can get. WordPress offers just that in the way of plugins.
Thousands of plugins are available, and "essential" is in the eye of the blogger. But I've rounded up five that I think are highly useful no matter what kind of blog you maintain.
Jack Wallen is an award-winning writer for Techrepublic and Linux.com. As an avid promoter/user of the Linux OS, Jack tries to convert as many users to open source as possible. His current favorite flavor of Linux is Bodhi Linux (a melding of Ubuntu and Enlightenment). When Jack isn't writing about Linux he is hard at work on his other writing career -- writing about zombies, various killers, super heroes, and just about everything else he can manipulate between the folds of reality. You can find Jack's books on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords. Outnumbered in his house one male to two females and three humans to six felines, Jack maintains his sanity by riding his mountain bike and working on his next books.

I can't find any useful info. It might be my fault, but whatever the case be, the info is hidden successfully.
Whose idea was it to put up a slideshow of just screenshots of wordpress plugin pages? I have to agree with the other commenter: This is useless. It should have been an article instead, not a slideshow.
