If you are wondering how my sidebar is sticking instead of scrolling that is due to a wonderful new jQuery plugin from the guys at Forrst. I absolutely love it, it is exactly what my new design needed.
One of WordPress’s greatest strengths is its ability of add functionality through the use of plugins. The problem is so many plugins are being used that the information (which is why we are actually visiting your site) is being obscured and the site is becoming slow to the point of uselessness. I find that I need very few plugins. For this site I use WordPress SEO by Joost, Gravity Forms, Wootumblog, Akismet, Obox Mobile, and Backup Buddy. I’ve helped some users who have convinced themselves that they need 20+ plugins. I guarantee that if you look at the plugins you are currently using you will find that they are unnecessary. </rant>
