The problem is that each plugin has to be installed and activated seperately, and this can be quite time consuming.
So how would you like to be able to install and activate all your plugins in one go?
Welcome to Plugin Central and 'No' it's not the only plugin you'll ever need. Whoever made that statement by the way? But, it's possibly the only plugin you'll ever need to 'install'.
The way it works is that you install Plugin Central, and then you can give it a list of all the other plugins you want, and Plugin Central will install them all for you with one click.
How kewl is that?
You still have to determine what other plugins to install, but here is a list to get you started. And all you have to do is copy and paste the list into Plugin Central.
The plugins are listed in alphabetical order. Just add and remove plugins as you see fit...
