Working with wordpress has a lot of benefits. One of them is the ability to use plugin in order to avoid not necessary code. Since i work with this cms only a few time a worked without plugin. Let’s see some of them, plugin useful to you.
There are hundreds of plugins and services which can provide statistics about your visitors. However even though something like Google Analytics provides an incredible depth of information, it can be overwhelming and doesn’t really highlight what’s most interesting to me as a writer. That’s why Automatic created its own stats system, to focus on just the most popular metrics a blogger wants to track and provide them in a clear and concise interface.
Once it’s running it’ll begin collecting information about your page views, which posts and pages are the most popular, where your traffic is coming from, and what people click on when they leave. It’ll also add a link to your dashboard which allows you to see all your stats on a single page.
Finally, because all of the processing and collection runs on our servers and not yours, it doesn’t cause any additional load on your hosting account. In fact, it’s one of the fastest stats system, hosted or not hosted, that you can use. Our stats reports reflect new visits typically within ten seconds.

CloudFlare has developed a plugin for WordPress. By using the CloudFlare WordPress Plugin, you receive:
Correct IP Address information for comments posted to your site
Better protection as spammers from your WordPress blog get reported to CloudFlare
The main purpose of this plugin is to ensure you have no change to your originating IPs when using CloudFlare. Since CloudFlare acts a reverse proxy, connecting IPs now come from CloudFlare’s range. This plugin will ensure you can continue to see the originating IP.
Every time you click the ‘spam’ button on your blog, this threat information is sent to CloudFlare to ensure you are constantly getting the best site protection. I recommend that any user on WordPress and CloudFlare should use this plugin.

Some features can be problematic if you don’t have enough RAM to support them. All my testing servers allocate 128MB to WordPress and usually don’t have any other plugins installed. I have seen issues with file check and database backups failing on servers with 64MB or less of RAM, particularly if there are many other plugins being used.
Please read the installation instructions and FAQ before installing this plugin. It makes some significant changes to your database and other site files which, without a proper backup, can cause problems if something goes wrong. While problems are rare, most (not all) support requests I get for this plugin involve the users failure to make a proper backup before installing.

Then, it downloads the translations, scans them and stores the translations in the database.You don’t need to install any .mo files or edit your wp-config.php to switch languages.
