Sexy Bookmarks

I got my blog some new Plugins including Sexy Bookmarks.  On Facebook yesterday I saw Jeff Turner recommend an Amplify of a post from Social Media Examiner written by Naomi Trower called:

11 Essential WordPress plugins to get your blog in motion

Plugins I added from the list of 11 Essential WordPress plugins

I added in 5 of the 11 recommended plugins...  one is not working, one is not activated yet.  I love my Sexy Bookmarks list of social bookmarking icons.

Sexy Bookmarks - "SexyBookmarks adds a (X)HTML compliant list of social bookmarking icons to each of your posts. See configuration panel for more settings."

The cute little image is showing. There are other settings for different phrases if "Sexy" does not work for you.  Or you don't even need words...  see the configuration panel... (configuration panl is a link on your dashboard plugins page when you have the plugin on your blog.)

CommentLuv  - "Plugin to show a link to the last post from the commenters blog by parsing the feed at their given URL when they leave a comment. Rewards your readers and encourage more comments."

Activated byt NOT working darn it all.

Platinum SEO Pack -  "Complete SEO solution for your Wordpress blog."

I can not tell if it is working... or even if I have it set up completely.  It is activated.

SEO Friendly Images - "Automatically adds alt and title attributes to all your images. Improves traffic from search results and makes them W3C/xHTML valid as well "

Good I'd be up all night worrying if my images were " W3C/xHTML valid" if I had a clue what it means.

I can not tell if it is working yet...

Yet Another Related Posts Plugin  -  "Returns a list of related entries based on a unique algorithm for display on your blog and RSS feeds. A templating feature allows customization of the display"

I deactivated it... need to look to see if I need to do more to set it up.

Adding Plugins

I probably should only add one plugin in at a time so that if one causes problems I could isolate it.  I had heard about Sexy Bookmarks at the last virtual rebarcamp... wish I could tell you who gave the presentation.  Very down to earth.  Great presentation about blogging.

ActiveRain WordPress Group

In an ActiveRain post Cheryl Johnson said a mobile plugin she used needed some tweaking.  I am very intimidated by tweaking so I have not tried the mobile plugin... on the Social Media Examiner post YET.  I want to see if this is the Plugin Cheryl shared with the ActiveRain WordPress group or another.

I already had two of the eleven on the list... I have something that serves the same purpose as the third.. that still leaves more there for me to explore.

If you blog on as well as ActiveRain join us in the WordPress group.  Visit the Social Media Examiner post (link above ) for links to the other individual plugins!

HI Maureen:  I wrote about WPTouch  ,,, and please change out my word "tweak" for the word "configure".....  if it makes it sound friendlier.... wouldn't want to discourage anyone   ... :-)

Thanks for the link Cheryl. 

The moblie plugin on this list is WordPress Mobile Edition by Crowd Source.

I think I will try to add it first then try your recommendation if it also needs tweaking.  For me "tweaking and configuring" or "tweaking or configuring" both  make me "a little bit nervous." I am taking a bigger interest in my WP blog lately...  and being less timid about plugins.

I think this is a very, very important plugin.  Probably a lot more important than many others since so many of us are accessing the internet on our itty bitty phones.

Hi Maureen,

  I have used the Sexy Bookmarks plugin, sans any phrases, for several months at the bottom of all pages and posts on my website.  It works great and I really like it.  A 'Thumbs Up' vote from me.

And you are 100% right about only adding one plugin at a time.  My days as a programmer taught me to never make more than one change at a time to a program unless I wanted to just guess which of the changes caused the problem!  A general idea for plugins is to add as few as you can get away with, not the most you can.

and the exciting new thing with 3.0???  opportunity to add all plugins? Update all plugins in one fell swoop.  I did not because I have noticed a problem with images on old posts. 

I removed the phrase.
