Top WordPress Plugins: The 100 Best For Your Site

The Top 100 WordPress Plugins For Your Site
It looks like a little face…

If you are a regular WPMU reader, you will have no doubt seen the WPMU 100 that we released last month. With the post proving to be so popular, we thought that you might be in the mood for more of the same. So what we have for you today is a resource that will be useful for any WordPress user – from beginner to advanced.

Few of us have the time (or the inclination) to trawl through the WordPress Plugins Directory to find the best plugins. More often than not we discover plugins when they are featured on a site (such as WPMU), or recommended by a friend or colleague.

That being the case, you are probably missing out on at least a few quality plugins that you didn’t even know existed. And let’s be honest – the WordPress Plugins Directory is not particularly user-friendly in the way in which it presents popular and highest rated plugins. So we figured that we would do all the hard work for you.

Which brings us to this – The Top 100 WordPress Plugins. We have extracted all available data from the WordPress Plugin Directory and sorted it to bring you a list of the top 100 plugins for your WordPress site. These plugins have all been updated within the last 12 months, and are listed as being compatible with WordPress v3.0 and up (most of them are compatible with v3.3.x). Enjoy!

There you have it folks — an enormous list of completely free plugins for you to experiment with. However, it would be remiss of me not to mention the offerings we have over at the WPMU Dev premium plugin directory. We may be biased, but the directory was built in order to serve up plugins that surpass the offerings on WordPress.org in terms of both quality and support. With that in mind, it’s well worth checking out. Enjoy!
