Wordpress plugins, round one...

These are plugins that I tested and used in pages. As usual this list is mainly for me - to remember what I found out earlier. if you find it useful, you're welcome :-)

Attachments

With this plugin, you can attach multiple files to your posts. This is useful, if you don't want to create a custom post type just for this.

Breadcrumb NavXT

If you need to use a breadcrumb, this is really easy to use and integrate in your PHP code.

Comprehensive Google Map Plugin

This plugin creates a shortcode to embed in your posts/pages and only that. It doesn't appear on the post editing page, stays right out of your way.

Contact Form 7

This is a simple to use contact form that can be used for almost anything. It is very customizable and easy to work with.

Custom Content Type Manager

With this plugin you can easily create custom input fields and assign them to your current post types - or create new ones. This really solved a lot of problems for me.

HTML Page Sitemap

This adds a shortcode to easily add a sitemap to anywhere on your site.

NextGEN Gallery

To tell the truth, I don't like the admin GUI logic here, but I didn't find a better gallery plugin yet.
