A useful set of wordpress plugins

I have recently started installing a base set of plugins whenever I create a new WordPress powered website. These are the extra tools that lift WordPress from a humble blogging tool to a fully fledged content management system.

Here are just a few of my favorites:

Delete Pending Comments – a great time saver.

Display Widgets – allowing you to turn on and off individual widgets on a page by page basis.

Fast Secure Contact Form – essential communication plugin with inbuilt captcha codes.

Google Analyticator – because data is everything.

Image Widget – a simple widget that uses native WordPress upload to add image widgets to your site.

Share and Follow – easy to use social media tools.

WP-Polls – an AJAX poll system widget.

WP Columnize – for multiple columns within posts
