    Few questions about wordpress plugins and ability to customize.

    - Please recommend some sites that have lots of plug-ins, or some that you personally use/rate high.

    - How do plugins affect server loads, any diffrenece that is notice, or do they run pretty much with ease vs. using none at all? Lets say you use 15+.

    First question is irrelevant as you should have a specific need for a plugin, not just for the sake of using them because they are popular.
    If you asked, "i want to place adsense in my wp blog, what plugin do you suggest" then you will get better answers. But, you should know this.

    The second question cannot be answered as it is entirely dependent on the coding in the plugin. Ive had sites with 5+ plugins on a shared host and they ran no different than a site with no plugins on the same host. But again, one bad plugin can probably bring your site to a crawl.

    That's impossible to benchmark something like that without seeing which plug-ins are being used and how they perform.

    Right, I was looking for more ways that I didn't know about to make a wordpress theme more user-freindly. But I'm betting I would have installed so many unessicary plugins without thinking first. Second - Thanks for the answers I will have to test it out. :bigthumb:
