Recommended WordPress plugin – Photodropper for WordPress

If you post a lot of your blog's content onto Facebook, you really need to include a picture with your blog posts to make it look good, stand out and not look like everything else you post on your Facebook Fan Page or profile.

But of course, you can't just go running to a search engine and steal any old picture, without giving proper credit or paying for it.

Which is where this fab plugin comes in – Photodropper for WordPress searches Flickr for pictures that you ARE allowed to use, and allows you to put them into your blog posts, along with the proper accreditation and copyright notice – all at the touch of a few buttons!

You can search by keyword to find the picture you want, choose the alignment and size, then simply press to insert into your blog – it's so simple anyone can do it!

(If your blog is a commercial one, make sure you check the 'commercial blog' box as some people on Flickr don't want their pictures used on commercial blogs)

To download this plugin, visit the Photodropper for WordPress website.

Recommended WordPress Plugin – WYSIWYG editor for WordPress

OK, the built in editor in WordPress isn't BAD, but it does make some things a bit difficult, so we love this plugin: Dean’s FCKEditor for WordPress

It makes adding blogs and comments to your WordPress blog as easy as using Word.

Whether you want to change the colour of text, add a smiley ( ), change the size of your text, or a myriad of other things, it makes them easy.

For me, the best part about it is the ability to put tables into WordPress easily, which allows much more freedom when it comes to writing blogs!

Plus, it allows for 'styled and colourful comments' – I've not played with this yet but it could be fun ;)

Features

  • Replace the default wordpress editor with CKEditor
  • Post comment with CKEditor to provide styled and colorful comments(Optional).
  • Build-in File manager and upload manager.
  • Build-in WordPress "read more" Button.
  • Control output format.
  • Customizable toolbar buttons
  • Integrated with WordPress media buttons:

  • Manage and insert Smileys into your post.
  • Customize editor’s skin.
  • …and more.

Thanks to @cartoono for pointing this one out – it's going to be a great addition to my clients' blogs!
