What Are Your Favorite WordPress Creations?

A heart drawn on paper

If you’ve been working with WordPress for any length of time then you’ll know that members of our community aren’t shy of sharing their opinions. Well, today, I’m counting on that.

I’m cooking up something big here at the ManageWP blog, but I need your help. All I ask is that you share your valuable opinions below in the comments section.

My question to you is simple: what are your favorite WordPress creations?

By “creations” I mean just about anything that you can directly associate with WordPress:

You get the idea. Just share as many of the above as you can think of in the comments section below – stuff that really stands out to you as worthy of mention amongst the best WordPress creations available.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with, but in the meantime, I’ll get started – check out my picks below!

    Hi Tom
    What a great question…. where to begin.

    I’m going for two!

    #1 – The new Divi theme from Elegant Themes really is drag and drop – can’t stop playing with it.

    #2 – The Genesis Extender plugin, which I use on all my Genesis sites. Makes customisation a real delight.

    I could go on and on, but I’ll stop there.

    Though I’m a new in WordPress and just recently started launching my own site, the first thing I associate with WP is GT3 Page Builder plugin! It goes together with my theme http://www.gt3themes.com/demo/?theme=Achromatic%20WP and I really enjoy this useful tool. Maybe for pros it’s not a big deal, but for me it’s really important to add all necessary modules one-by-one, so I can see what’s going on with my custom pages.

    And of course I associate WP with its amazing community, Codex and your blog guys!

    Btw, I can show you my theme

    I’m a huge fan of WP Types and tons of what Pippin creates. I also have a new found love for WP UserPro, Ahmed is killing it with this tool. Big love to the WP community for making so much awesomeness.

    Off the top of my head,,, Jetpack, Yoast’s SEO plugin and ‘Anatomy Of A WP Theme’ infographic, WordCampSF, the Codex, ManageWP, and all the friendly pressers & happiness engineers putting tutorials out there.

      Nice List!

    Too many awesome WP creations out there to choose, but I guess the one plugin that has made me happy most recently was Raw HTML Pro. I convert a lot of old sites to WordPress, and many of those clients don’t appreciate it when WP mangles their carefully crafted HTML code when going back and forth between Text and Visual tabs, or that it does such funkiness with wpautop. Those people love to have ultimate control over their HTML and WP out of the box doesn’t want to give that to them. So Raw HTML Pro comes to the rescue!

    Community of developers and designers that produced enormous number of extensions to the core software.

    And Antispam bee is a very simple and likeable plugin :)

    Alright, so one of my favorite WordPress creations has to be the Distraction Free Editor. I can’t stand to write posts in the normal view so I always stick to the DFE.

    As for plugins, although it’s not the one I use the most, my pick has to be TablePress. It’s incredibly well designed and was created by one of the nicest guys in WordPress that I’ve met.

    Theme-wise, I’m a big fan of Genesis by StudioPress. Seriously sturdy framework.
