Lists of top [anything] are a big hit across the interwebs. They pack a lot of information into a neat list that's easy to comb for exactly what you need. As WordPress keeps gaining momentum and popularity, more and more bloggers are posting lists of their favorite plugins that help them stay on top of their game. Instead of posting a top X list, however, DLS reader Staska decided to aggregate. By using the power of community and this list of
top WordPress plugin posts from bloggers around the world, Staska created a Top 30 WordPress Plugins
list by tallying each plugin's mention from all those bloggers.
That's a lot of lists, and a lot of aggregating.
The result is a great success, with a strong list that should have something for everyone, and commentary from Staska on the wide array of WordPress plugins that keep the blogosphere runing.Post by David Chartier
