More *Must Load* WordPress Plugins

I get several requests per week for more info on WordPress plugins. I think it’s because I am such a geek when it comes to WordPress and plugins.

No matter.

Today, I share a video I created just to share some of the *must have’s* with you, and exactly how to set them up.

WP-DBManager

Starts at 3:24
A WordPress plugin for maintenance, designed to backup your blog’s database on a schedule that you setup. It will optionally email that backup to you, in addition to saving it on your server. This plugin also contains features to allow you to optimize your database on a schedule, or repair or restore your database via the built in control panel. The WP-DBManager WordPress plugin will protect your asset by sending you a backup daily.

In the event of a server hack or crash, you will need to restore your database back to a good version. Don’t wait until you need to restore a database to load and setup this plugin. Set it up now, and let it run so when you do need it, it is already there

Thank Me Later

Starts at 10:31
This WordPress plugin allows you to setup custom messages that will be sent out to people that comment on your blog. You can set up a schedule, series of messages and define the probabilities for each message. The Thank Me Later WordPress plugin will make your visitors feel pampered.

Sexy Bookmarks

Starts at 20:01
This WordPress plugin allows your visitors to share your excellent content with their friends, Facebook profile, Twitter, Reddit and any one of a dozens more social sites. Making it easy for your visitors to share your content is crucial to getting them to take that action. Easier = more will do it.

Don’t skip this important step in setting up a successful blog, install Sexy Bookmarks and start getting your visitors to share your content.

Fixed Social Buttons

Starts at 27:34
Like Sexy Bookmarks, Fixed Social Buttons allows your visitors to share your content, but it also allows them to connect with your social profiles. This stays onscreen as they scroll your content, quietly reminding them to share what they like. Install Fixed Social Buttons to provide your visitors another way for your visitors to connect with you, and share your content.

Load Balancing

Starts at 31:39
Getting all those really cool plugins to play nice with one another can sometimes present a challenge. Unless you start off on the right foot that is. I share a secret technique to find problem plugins and ideas for balancing the plugins you want with the speed and page load time you need.

When To Edit

Starts at 39:15
We will also take a look at when to edit your theme or add code in a widget and when to load a plugin. You might be surprised at what’s possible with a little bit of help.

  1. Hey Cenay. I really like your presentation style, especially now that I can see you on camera LOOKING AT ME! 🙂

    Great tutorial, and I’m off now to add some sexy bookmarks…..the plugin that is.

  2. Hey Cenay

    Would like to get the code for Wanna Get Notified, Keep up the great work I love your site.

  3. First things first, THANKS! I appreciate you taking the time to let me know you like the site.

    The code you requested is shown below. Just remember to save the images (from my site) to your local computer and then upload to your domain. Also, change the HREF locations to point to your profiles and feeds.

    <td rowspan=”2″ ><p>Have all the posts and updates sent right to your <a href=”http://feeds.feedburner.com/VideosbyCenay” rel=”nofollow”>RSS

  4. Hey Cenay

    Thanks for the code thats awesome, Question though; this may sound stupid but where do I upload the images at? I’m currently using the Thesis Theme with FileZilla Client. I put the images into my image folder with no luck. any help on this would be very much appreciated

  5. Hi
    Thank you for a great video. I have a littel problem and a question regarding the WP-DBManager.
    I asked my host(unoeuro.com) for the Path To mysqldump og Path To mysql.
    I was told that I could not get that because web and mysql is not on the same server.
    I tryed to set up WP-DBManager without that and it has sent me a backup to my email.
    So is the Path To mysqldump og Path To mysql necessary and what exactly is it?

    Thanks
    Anders

  6. In addition to saving them to your local computer (from my site, just right click the image and select Save Image As), you must upload to the /images folder on your site, and THEN, update the code to show YOUR location, rather than mine.

    So, for example,

    Change
    <td width=”49″>
    <a href=”http://feeds.feedburner.com/VideosbyCenay” rel=”nofollow”>
    <img src=”http://www.videos.bycenay.com/images/rss-48×48.png” width=”48″ height=”48″ border=”0″ /v</a> </td>
    TO
    <td width=”49″>
    <a href=”http://feeds.feedburner.com/YourFeedBurnerID” rel=”nofollow”>
    <img src=”http://www.YourDomainName.com/images/rss-48×48.png” width=”48″ height=”48″ border=”0″ /v</a> </td>

    I really hope this clears it up for you. If not, email me and we can discuss it. cenay@nowyouaretalking.com

  7. Cenay-

    Thank you so much for your wonderful videos! I just found your website and this is exactly the what I needed. I started a blog in October and really wanted to add some of the plug-ins you talk about here but I had no clue what I was doing. So your step-by-step guide was awesome!

    I’ll be adding you to my reader– thanks again!

  8. Cenay

    Thank you for the information packed videos they have really helped. We will be adding the Sexy Bookmarks and will try to add code for wanna get noticed to site.

    Thank you.

  9. Cenay, today morning I signed for 7 days member and so far you didn´t give me a retorn. I still not been able to access the vídeos.

    Last week I send you a message asking you about a problem on my site, and I didn´t got a retorn even to say that you couldn´t help me.

    Why? All the work you do is so fantastic, you are teaching me so much, but the feedback isn´t working well.

  10. My profound apologies. I don’t have this process automated yet (you would think I had found a solution I liked, right?), and I have been suffering from Food Poisoning this week. Today is first day out of bed/bathroom. I setup your account, again…my apologies for this taking a while. Want to send an email about your site problem? See if I can help? Email direct at cenay@nowyouaretalking.com

  11. Hi Cenay!!! Forst of all, please excuse my english. I’m spanish. I’m trying to create a website about woodworking. Let me tell you how great your videos are, you explain everything so clearly that even I can understand 🙂
    I’m very very new in website creation and in wordpress, but then I found you and the sky is open again!! Thanks for sharing all your knowledge. I’ll ask for your help once in a while if you don’t mind.

    As I’m so ignorant that I couldn’t fix the notification that appears in my wordpress database options panel saying that I had to move the htacess from one place to another. But internet is amazing and so it is youtube, here is the answer if somebody need it. I hope you don’t mind me recommending other’s people videos 🙂 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhvMGwl8JoQ
    The name is “Fix for htaccess WP DBmanager Plugin for WordPres”

    Thanks again for your time and for sharing all this,
    Simon

  12. Have you found a plugin I should be recommending? Something you use? I’d love to hear from you.
