WPMU Dev Plugins

As part of my job, I get to play around with plugins for the Otis Blogosphere. Slowly but surely, I am adding info about them in the main Help section.

Today, though,  I’d like to tell you about one of the best repositories of plugins, WPMU DEV. We use several of their plugins, some of which you can use in your blogs: CETS Embed RSS, Google Maps Embed, and More Privacy Options. Other plugins help make the main blog a better place including Ada WPMU Sitewide Feed, New Blog Defaults, and Theme Usage Info.

But I want to tell you about the first plugin of theirs that we used – the Anarchy Media Player. The existing Flash player did not meet our needs. AMP, though, allowed our bloggers to embed videos from multiple sources. Though it has been out for ages, we still recommend it.

So far, I’ve only added their free plugins. They offer many premium themes and plugins. Please let me know if you find any that would support your blog by leaving me a comment below. There are many that I would like to use, including the newest version of New Blog Defaults, now called New Blog Template. And their themes, well, I lust after them as well.

There are running a contest to give away a free WPMU Premium membership. Here’s hoping that Otis wins! Regardless …

Thank you, WPMU DEV.
