    • Essential Plugins for your WordPress Real Estate Blog
      Jay Thompson – PhoenixRealEstateGuy.com
    • Not a plugin, but the most important thing you can add to your real estate blog is…
      An IDX search solution
      IDX – Internet Data eXchange. The “MLS” on your website
      Choices vary by MLS
      Not all IDX solutions work in all MLS’s
      Not all IDX solutions are created equal
      Test with actual home searchers
      Most likely, you will need a “no sidebar” template

    • What is a plugin?
      A piece of code that adds functionality to your blog.
      Don’t freak out on “code”
      Some plugins conflict with each other.
      Add one at a time, and test
      Some plugins only work with specific versions of WP
      The vast majority are free. Some are not.
      Be careful, some are poorly coded and not supported well.

    • Anti-spam
      Akismet
      Included in standard WP install. Need WP.com API
      WP-SpamFree
      Compliments Akismet. Stops many spambots
      Bad Behavior
      Similar to SpamFree. Plays well with Akismet.
      Captcha’s
      Can be annoying to users
