Plugins by Category

I’ve tried to come up with some function categories of plugins in order to focus the search for what you would want for your website.  If you are looking for a plugin to provide a specific function for your site, chances are a search of the WordPress Plugin Repository will turn up dozens if not hundreds of  potential candidates.  I’ve tried to create a handful of useful umbrella function categories and give a short list of plugins i have found useful and or have gotten rave reviews. For the most part I’ve limited my selections to the free plugins but there are a few exceptions where a premium plugin is clearly superior, so I will list those as well.
