my plugins

Well im using 25 wordpress plugins *jeez* .Some of them are resource hungry and I have tried more than 50 plugins but ended up removing unnecessary things. Here is the list what is currently active.

  • All in One SEO Pack (Out-of-the-box SEO for your WordPress blog.)
  • Autor Exposed (Simple and elegant way to get more information about author.)

  • Contact Form with Captcha (Simple Contact Form with Captcha Enabled)
  • DamnSexyBookmarks ( DamnSexyBookmarks adds a (X)HTML compliant list of social bookmarking icons to each of your posts.)

How do you integrate W3 Total Cache with Nginx? I’m very interested in this issue. Please share your method. Thanks 🙂


5 Ruchira December 23, 2010 at 7:25 AM

actually w3 total cache with nginx doesnt require any rewrites. Just upload the plugin and it works! 🙂


6 TungNT December 23, 2010 at 7:38 PM

Interesting! From your experience, which functions of W3 Total Cache works with Nginx? I see in your other article that Memcached function works. Anything else…? 🙂


7 Ruchira December 23, 2010 at 8:39 PM

everything works without any rewrites on nginx! 🙂 There is no limitation like wp super cache!

Hiya, I am really glad I’ve found this info. Today bloggers publish just about gossips and web and this is actually annoying. A good blog with exciting content, that is what I need. Thank you for keeping this web site, I will be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Can not find it.
