    in my opinion these are the essencial ones:
    Auto Social Poster
    All in One SEO Pack
    MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer
    Google XML Sitemaps
    Dagon Design Sitemap Generator
    WP Page-Navi

    then, you have lots more to choose depending on what you want to do with wordpress!

    My faves:

    Redirection (essential)
    Simple Tags (mass tag editing)
    In Series (great way to create posts linked in a series)
    Caffeinated Content (pulls Yahoo Answers into Posts/Comments)

    Trota- do you still need MaxBlog Ping Optimizer with WP2.5? I thought they fixed the future post and saved pinging problems in the latest WP release.

    I'd like to know if that's a feature they fixed goon cause if so I need to take my maxbping plug in out. I was under the same impression that 2.5 was still a wp ping problem.

    My faves right now are
    sociable
    All in one SEO
    Google Sitemaps
    WP-Stats
    WP-Cache
    WP-DBManager
    WP-Autotagger
    I'm also using the WP Traffic Plug ins:
    Socialize it Pro
    Rss aggregator


    Not to hijack the thread but 2.6 just came out today too guys. If anyone experiences any problems with upgrading and their plug ins maybe we should open a new thread. Fawk it I'll do it anyway. :)

    Only thing Caffeinated Content is that in every post he adds a link back to the Caffeinated site. Is there way to get rid of this?

    I got rid of the caffeinated link as well. I think it was a bug in the file you use to add additional links to your posts and comments. It automatically comes with his links in the sample file. After one of the updates, it pulled from the link file even if you didn't check the box. Easy fix is to change the links in the file or clear out the contents all together.

    There are two text files in the one of the folders. called Link1.txt and link.txt. In there there are the links which you can edit or delete all together.

    So;

    1: Caffeinated
    2: All in one SEO
    3: Google XML Sitemaps
    4: Feedburner

    Hey Pofecker-
    I'm very interested in your opinion on Platinum SEO. Why is it better than All-in-One?
    By they way, spooky avatar.

    If you do it right (i.e. take the time to set up lots of multiple accounts and stuff), then AutoSocial Poster is the #1. If you don't do it right, it's worthless.

    That said, I also really like:

    Sociable
    Simple Tags
    Google XML Sitemaps
    All-in-One SEO

    Those seem to be pretty standard.

    Features of Platinum SEO Plugin:

    * Optimized Post and Page Titles for search engines

    * Generates all SEO relevant META tags automatically

    * Helps you avoid duplicate content

    * Lets you override any title and set any META description and META keywords, for any post or page

    * Compatible with most other plugins, like Auto Meta, Ultimate Tag Warrior and others.However you may have to disable All in One SEO pack

    * You don't have to fear changing permalinks. If you are not satisfied with the current permalink, change it through Settings->Permalinks in your admin panel, without worrying about loss of Page rank or google penalty.Platinum SEO plugin will take care of issuing a 301 redirect to the new location. This is a new essential feature, not present in All in one SEO

    * Add index, noindex, follow or nofollow, noarchive, nosnippet, noodp, noydir meta tags to any post/page.

    ^^These options are not available in All in one SEO Pack.
