Like the First Five WordPress Plugins I install these Next Three WordPress Plugins with every WordPress installation.
The three plugins listed below, are essentially numbers 6-8, in the natural progression I follow, for every WordPress website I deploy and administer.
Why three plugins and not five, like the last article?
Great question, but you aren’t going to get the answer you are looking for. In my mind, these three just went well together.
It never takes too long for a WordPress powered website to be found. Within a few days, sometimes within hours (even minutes), end users will start to sign up. Without these next five plugins, a person can go absolutely crazy, trying to keep up with all the bogus user account registrations and comment spam.
- 6. Theme My Login:
- The Theme My Login WordPress Plugin (by Jeff Farthing) does a lot. It integrates your WordPress theme with the WordPress Login, Registration and Password Recovery pages. It also limits fake user account registrations, by requiring account confirmation via the supplied e-mail address (or be approved by an admin). It does all this without HTML5 validation issues.
- 7. Conditional CAPTCHA for WordPress:
- Akismet and the Conditional CAPTCHA WordPress Plugin (by Samir Shah), work together to fight comment spam. When Akismet identifies a comment as spam, the commenter will be asked to complete a simple CAPTCHA. Spam is automatically discarding (or trashing) if the CAPTCHA is failed. The comment is passed into the spam queue (or automatically approved) if the CAPTCHA is passed. An authentic (or genuine) commenter, not flagged by Akismet, will be able to comment without the CAPTCHA. There is even a cool option to utilize the Google reCAPTCHA API.
- 8. WP-UserAgent:
- The WP-UserAgent WordPress Plugin (by Kyle Baker), logs the operating system and web browser used to post comments. This plugin can display numerous variations of operating systems and web browsers. You can choose text and/or graphical display options. All of this is available without HTML5 validation issues.
If your WordPress website was designed and built using HTML5 and CSS3 valid code, validation should not fail, after the installation of these specific WordPress plugins, though there could be some non-vital, browser-specific, validation issues.
