I have been listening to this podcast now for over 6 months. There are so many plugins to choose from it becomes difficult to know which ones to trust and which ones will work without the long tedious process of trial and error. After listing to John and Marcus, you will quickly begin to eliminate this task by listening to their advice and reviews of some of the best plugins for WordPress. John also is a wonderful source for those nasty little problems that have with your WordPress site. He has assisted me on a hacked site as well as a large project and came through in a timely and professional manner in both cases.

This is a simple plugin that makes life easier for your users. Normal operations when craretiing a new site in MU is that it creates and sends a password to the user. This plugin allows them to choose thier password while siging up and with the proper settings on your nwetwork you can enforce a strong password. Pretty easy to use and setup.

Backup, Back and backup again that is my motto. As we all know nothing beats a good backup when things go wrong and we all know how smooth the internet always operates right? Well this plugin allows you to make a complete network backup and store it locally, to amazon s3, dropbox, ftp, Google drive or GreenQloud Storage. You do need to set it to back up the individual blogs on your network. It keeps 5 archives has an instant restore function and saves all important files and data table. an excellent plugin for a network.

Now if your going to run a network of sites for users sooner or later you are going to have to answer some support queries. This system integrates into your network to allow users and you can set the level of access to insure your paying customer get priority support. You also get to create a Q&A section for FAQs that will help everyone. It does take some work to get it customized the way you want and displaying the FAQs for non members requires some coding but it really is a great plugin.
Rating 4 Dragons.

LearnPress is a comprehensive LMS solution for WordPress. This WordPress LMS Plugin can be used to easily create, manage and sell courses online. Each course curriculum can be made with lessons and quizzes which can be managed with easy-to-use user interface.
What I found really unique about this LMS system is that you can migrate and import all the courses to any other WP install that has LearnPress activated.

Sometimes you like a post to be sticky during a time interval in the future and not immediately when publishing. This plugin lets you specify when the stickiness should begin and end. Once you have set the start and end dates, you don’t have to change the stickiness manually, the plugin uses WordPress’s cron job to set and unset stickiness. It works right out of the post editor!
