Top 3 Genealogy WordPress Plugins

If you have a self-hosted WordPress blog, you probably know about the multitude of wonderful plugins available to customize your blog.  These are my favorite plugins for genealogy-related posts/blogs.

  1. Footnotes for WordPress: By adding a simple tag to your posts, you can add footnotes to your posts [ref ]such as this[/ref].  This makes citing sources much easier than trying to add the footnotes yourself.

  2. WordPress Related Post: By using categories and tags, this plugin will give related posts at the end of each post to make it easier for visitors to explore your blog.  For example, if you post about your Smith family, others posts on the Smith's will be linked.

  3. WordPress Editorial Calendar: This is a great plugin for any blog writer.  You can plan ahead and create a schedule to add structure to your blog.  This can be useful for the wide variety of weekly blogging prompts many geneabloggers follow.Editorial Calendar Plug-in for WordPressWhat are your favorite WordPress plugins?
