WordPress Favorites feature

There is not a day that goes by with out seeing a list of WordPress Favorite plugins recently I was at a WordPress users group meeting and the presenter showed the feature of wordpress.org introduced in 2012 Version 3.5 where when you are Log in you find a plugin you could add it to your favorite list and the next time you are looking for plugins when you create a new website you can quickly find the ones you need.

Installing Favorite Plugins

Viewing a user's favorite plugins in the dashboard
To install plugins from a user's list of favorites within the WordPress dashboard:
1. Go to Plugins > Add New.
2. Under Favorites, type in the WordPress.org username of the user who's favorites you would like to install and click Get Favorites.
3. Follow the Installing Plugins above to install the plugins you would like.

my userid is steinpc.com with the basic plugins for when I start a site.

If you have a list of favorite plugins email me the name and the reason people should look at the list like beginner, developer, social, or a brief description of who might like your list.
