initial WordPress configuration

So myStuff WordPress is loaded, now lets start adding a couple of my favorite plugins:

  • Akismet – Let’s enable it since this blog will be open to comments
  • InfiniteWP – A great multi-WordPress management / admin tool which I used to load all the plugins here.
  • Limit Login Attempts – To prevent some Brute-force attack. I did change increase the lock out minutes and enable email to admin.
  • WordPress SEO – A must have and you need to configure it correctly including setting up Google Webmaster tools, Bing Webmaster tools and the socials to enable Open Graph.
  • WP Smush.it  – If you dont optimize and compress your images or Imsanity  if need to automatically resize huge images

Plugins that I have loaded but only activate when needed
