Speed & Responsiveness
WP Super Cache – Greatly increases the speed at which your website runs by caching a pre-generated copy and only rebuilding it when necessary. (ie something is changed)
Quick Page Post Redirect – Provides powerful redirects for both existing pages (maybe you need to change the Permalink) and raw URL-to-URL translations
OPIC – Causes WordPress to use OSU’s internal avatar system OPIC for profile avatars rather than Gravatar. (Note: This one isn’t available from WordPress via the standard install method and needs to be downloaded and installed manually).
