I’ve never heard of this one until now. Nice work; I could use this in a lot of more complicated projects.

Indispensable especially for larger sites: lam_browse_by

tjh_listfilter does the same thing but has the added advantage of being persistent. The filter is still applied when one returns to the article list. I find that to be very useful because I often find myself having to carry out the same action to more than one article in a section or category. Probably wouldn’t be so useful if I always got things right first time ;-).

Thanks for that, very useful indeed.
However lam_browse_by does the same for the images’ listing.

Would be great if this functionality would be integrated into the core.

Re: What are your "Top 10" Textpattern plugins and why?

I could not think of more than seven right now, the more I use textpattern, the more the core system seems enough for most things.

Here we go, with star ratings and all.

upm_image ***** the only way to deal with images in multiple ways
tru_tags **** been using this more and more
asy_wondertag *** still waiting for 4.0.7! :)
asy_jpcache ** still really handy for page caching
zem_contact_reborn ** obviously
wdm_update_url * a plugin you feed to a fresh install, more like a TXP fix
rvm_if_this_article * thinking outside the “Article Form”

.

and on an unrelated note, I love formatting tables with textile. ;)

Re: What are your "Top 10" Textpattern plugins and why?

Wow, what an interesting list!

  • Definitely rss_show_advanced_opts – simple but essential for me
  • Related is sed_section fields – show certain custom fields per section
  • zem_contact_reborn is indispensible
  • asy_wondertag is awesome! Makes the impossible possible
  • chh_if_data is very handy
  • upm_image can really help customize image display

I agree this is a useful resource to see which plugins are really being used by other TXP developers and to what end.

Re: What are your "Top 10" Textpattern plugins and why?

Bumping a (very) old thread after a search, this thread seems to be the most complete.

rss_show_advanced_opts
jnm_audio
mg_setheader
rah_replace
rah_sitemap
rss_admin_db_manager
rss_admin_show_adv_opts

Thank you to the previous posters for making me aware of some plugins I had no idea even existed!

Re: What are your "Top 10" Textpattern plugins and why?

A few more good ones:

ebl-image-edit / Advanced Image Editing Plugin for Textpattern

pap_contact_cleaner / Prevent Spam through Zem Contact

act_if_mobile / This plugin adds conditional tag to determine, if user is browsing from mobile device, or not > very cool conditional tag that allows you to provide alternative code/content for mobile browsers such as phones or pads

wet_if_page / Conditionally tests for the current page number being member of a list. > very nice to be used with soo_page_numbers. Lets you set conditionals based on the page number you’re on, for example display a certain header only on page 1 of the paginated list…
