Hi Cory

There are just so many plugins and they just keeping adding more. Out of the 20 listed. I have about 1/2 of them, and will add the other 1/2. Some of them need to be upgraded like the Platinum SEO Pack. Thanks Cory.

Admin Favicon does nothing besides add a Favicon to “admin” pages, which isn't really beneficial in any way.

Hey Sorry Ryan, for some reason that plugin also changed the Favicon on one of my sites too. However just do a quick look in plugins for Favicon and pick out your favorite.

I can’t figure out how to find and install these plugins on my wordpress page. I’m sure it’s probably easy and I’m just missing something, but if someone could give me some guidance I’d sure appreciate it. :)

Cory, I really appreciate you sharing this one. It helps me break down which plugin does what, and now when I see them in the back office I am able to explain them better to a potential wordpress user. Very user friendly, and if a person takes note it can really help their business land on google’s first page for FREE! Awesome work.

Hi Cory, The information you provided is awesome and very useful to use on WP. Thank you for providing such a great info.  Digg Digg is my favourite plugin. All the plugins shown here are very important. I have come across a new plugin just released which helps to write unlimited sales letters in WP. I found it through this link here >>> http://tiny.cc/fblpk
