    I am running a WP site that is related to gaming. Well I have quite a few post and pages on it. What plugins would you recommend that would be best for something like this?

    I was thinking of maybe something like an auto-social poster that would post the links to social sites when I create or update a post/page.

    Any thoughts on must have plugins? I am not used to dealing with WP.

    Auto Social poster is in the download section and for pop up i want you to use any of the plugin..because pop up domination is too costly ..once you have that much importance then purchase it..i had tried to find this plugin but no luck..so if you get it then send me the pm//

    Hello,

    SEO Smart Links for auto internal links, set max links per post to 4 or 5, depending on word count of your posts.

    WP Smush It to compact images for faster loading

    Login Lockdown - stops hackers from hacking your username and pass - set it to max 3 login retries and lock out for at least 1000 minutes.

    If you are using images to show gaming software or similar then you can use - Featured Posts Grid or Category Grid View plugin. These display all posts with featured images nicely in a grid like fashion on home page or wherever you want with shortcode by category, something useful for sites like gaming.

    Social Sharing Toolkit is a nice social icons plugin with many customizeable features, great for visitors to share your content, can be placed in posts/pages, with shortcode, in sidebar.

    Lastly, for gaming site another useful plugin would the List Posts by Category plugin, this one allows you to list posts in Widgets from different categories, a great way to organize content for a big niche.

    Good luck!

    Yes, you might have plugins. I recommend you WP super cache plugin, this is a very fast caching engine for WP that produces static html files. Hope it will helpful to you...

    Good Luck!
