Easy Portfolio

https://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-portfolio/

The Lowdown:

Ok so you need a way to show off your work be it pictures graphics or a bunch of websites you have completed. Well this plugin does a nice job of doing that. It uses custom post types to allow you to create your portfolio of items and then display them wherever you wasnt with just some short codes. So not only do you get a nice gridlayout of the items but when they click through for more info you can write as much or as little about the item or project and use that to help your visitors decide on your quality.

Widgets on Pages 0.0.12

https://wordpress.org/plugins/widgets-on-pages/

The lowdown;

Well every once in a while I need to recycle what I often find to be a useful plugin when I want to do a little trickery with widgets and place them in unusual places on a site. This plugin always seems to fit the bill as it allows you to create unique widgets and then with a little codemajic or simple shortcodes you can place a widget anywhere on your site

DB Cache Reloaded Fix

https://wordpress.org/plugins/db-cache-reloaded-fix/

 

The lowdown:

Ok this is an oldie but still a goodie, as one of the biggest issues with WordPress is the number of calls to the DB. This plugin caches the most common calls to the database and speeds up your site nicley. While I have discussed this one I felt since I use it on every site I build it is important ot know about the one thing to keep in mind is that you do not turn on until tthe last thing you do once you go live.
