    Hello,

    I am planning to build a network out of Wordpress Minisites. I am now asking myself what Plugins should I use with it?

    I have already installed:

    XML Google Sitemap
    All in One SEO
    easyCONTACT

    Any other suggestions?

    THX

    You'll probably need a plugin for Adsense / Amazon and some Image Managing one as well. Max Banner Ads is pretty good for your CPA banners too.

    Adsense is already implemented in my theme so no need for that. Amazon links will be done manually.
    Hm Image Managing... It is included in WP, isnt it?

    yea but by default ur images will be quite poor... better to get a plugin that will let u automatically optimize them... u might also want to get a privacy policy plugin

    Before your question can be answered... What do you want the plugins to do?

    I mean, are they for SEO, automation, imbeding videos, scraping content, social bookmarking, making your site pretty, or what?

    If all you want is to include a link to another site at the end of every post, you only need to edit your theme's "single.php" file.

    1) Go to the /wp-content/themes/ directory

    2) Enter to your theme folder

    3) Open "single.php"

    4) Find this code (or something similar):

    Code:
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    Below that, you'll see your post template.

    5) Paste your link BEFORE this code:

    Code:
    <?php endwhile; ?>

    If you can't handle that, I suggest you visit http://codex.wordpress.org

    Another option would be to use something like this plugin: http://www.freetimefoto.com/add_post_footer_plugin_wordpress

    Good luck!

    That's a cracking list of Plugs and many of them are ones I've not heard about before. Thanks for the time in listing them - will add them to my blogs now.

    No. Platinum OR All in One. Both serve basically the same purpose.

    No problem :) Glad to be of help.
