Many people want to change their permalink structure, for example,
But doing so will make all pages indexed by search engines become invalid,moreover, losing visitors from other sites or bookmarks that links to you.
There is a way to tell the search engines (and browsers) that the page has permenantly moved, and that the old address should be replaced by the new one. Itâ€™s called a â€œ301 Redirectâ€, also known as a Permanent Redirect. When you do this, Search engines will update their indexes quickly and you wonâ€™t lose your pagerank.you will continue to receive traffic as though nothing had changed. This works for search engines, bookmarks, and links from other sites.
By now, you know how can you change your permalinks without losing the traffic youâ€™re already getting. You can download this Permalink Migration Plugin to achieve this for you.
This plugin will generates a â€œ301 Redirectâ€ when user or spider visit your site through old permalinks,and redirect them to the new permalinks of the same post. Permalinks Migration Plugin allows you safely change your permalink structure without breaking the old links to your website, and even doesnâ€™t affect your search engine rankings.

My Top Commentators is a plugin that allows a blogger to discover who are the most active commentators on his blog (via the WordPress Dashboard, so other people will not see this information). You can also use different time frames for this, so you can see the top commentators: Today, Yesterday, Last 7 days,This month, Last month, This year, Last year.
Secondly, you can also see all the comments left by a single person, and edit or delete them via the plugin interface. People that comment often on your blog are your most loyal readers, so it would be useful to know exactly who they are.

The idea of BuddyPress is to take a standard vanilla installation of WordPress MU and turn it into something that represents more of a community building tool, or niche social network. BuddyPress is essentially a set of WordPress MU specific plugins. Each plugin adds a distinct feature (or component) to BuddyPress and only handles functionality for that specific component (for example, private messaging). The standard features of BuddyPress are:
The extended profile component allows site admins to create specific profile fields for their members to fill in. They can create as few or as many profile fields as they like, be as specific or vague as they want. Profile fields can then be grouped.
This is everything WordPress has to offer for publishing a blog. The only difference is that all administration tabs will be moved underneath a â€œBlogâ€ tab. A Memberâ€™s blog will also appear under â€œ/membername/blog/â€Â or /membername.domain.com/blogâ€ rather than at the root.
BuddyPress private messaging works like internal site email. Members can message people on their friends list as well as forward and reply to received messages.
Members of a BuddyPress social network can be connected together by one member adding another as a â€œfriendâ€ and then the other member accepting the friend request.
Groups in BuddyPress are a gathering of members, blog posts, photos and any other user generated content.
This is a place where friends can come along and post to a members profile. This would be a short message and could include a picture and some basic HTML. The TinyMCE editor will be used to allow for basic formatting.
Status updates in BuddyPress will appear on a memberâ€™s profile page. A member can update their status as frequently as they want to. All status updates are logged in a memberâ€™s activity log.
Members of a BuddyPress installation will be able to create their own photo albums. These albums can be shared with friends and groups. Each member is given a certain amount of space, which can be set by the site administrator.
As each one is a separate plugin, there is no reason why site admins canâ€™t pick and choose which components they want and donâ€™t want. There is also no reason why additional components couldnâ€™t be written, or other existing WordPress plugins be used alongside.

Disqus, pronounced discuss, is a service for blog comments. Disqus enables bloggers to make the conversations on their blogs more interactive and manageable. Our distributed comment system connects readers across blog communities, while empowering publishers in promoting their content. In short, using Disqus is a better way for people to participate in conversations initially started by blog posts.
Discussions on your blog are now made more interactive and social. Readers can rate comments to help make sure only good comments stay in the conversation. Rated comments contribute to a commenter’s clout, or reputation, on blogs across the web. Disqus is currently a free service to use. If you do not use any of these, Disqus also provides a general code snippet for any website as well.
Disqus is a hosted service. This means that the discussion threads are completely powered by their software and servers. However, they do not make any claims to the ownership or control of the comments. You do still own your comments.
