The WordPress software is pretty impressive. So far, I have been able to do everything I have wanted to either with the sofware itself, or with a plug-in.
These are the plugins that this site is currently using:
- WP-Stats: statistics page
- Front Page Categories: only show certain categories on the front page
- Search Pages: advanced search functionality
- AMM: Amazon Media Manager
- WPG2: embeds Gallery within WordPress
- FlvPlayer: sets up a page to play Flash videos on your site (see my post on how to install it properly)
