Going plugin crazy

I haven’t been myself lately, so that’s why I’m lacking recent quality posts.

I’ve installed two WordPress plugins yesterday that I think deserves your consideration:

WP-Print is great because it “displays a printable version of your WordPress weblog post”. It removes all formatting except for the most relevant content: post title, post content, and the full URLs contained in the post, kind of like the ones in SitePoint plaintext newsletters (example). It’s great when links displayed like this for print because normal links on printed paper mean nothing.

Lately, I’ve been printing articles to read later (or maybe things my mom or friends might find interesting). If blogs would use this plugin, it would be much easier to follow up on the links.

As for Flickr Post Bar, it’s much easier not having to navigate through Flickr to get the code for a post. You can insert the latest photos from your photostream, or search tags – all within the post page.

It’s finding gems like these that make me wonder if I should just stick to just blogging here rather than splitting myself also at Bryan Off Topic…🙂
