Howdy folks, thought it may be interesting to know what plugins some of you guys use for your wordpress sites, I'm looking out for new seo, forms, forum plugins etc to use on my site but have not used WP for a few years, so would be cool to learn about the latest and greatest WP has to offer.

Cheers Washy.
