Which plugins for SMF forums do you use?

    Recently I have started a new forum and this time around I am using SMF.
    Overall I like the fact that it is very easy for mods and admins to navigate through it as I don't really pick the team based on previous experiences with forums, but rather how much they are into the subject matter.

    Now I am ready to do more with the forum and I am wondering if any of you can recommend me some plugin which can make the forum experience a little more social media like.

    Thanks.

    The Referrals addon by vbgamer is a good one. You can use it for referral contests and what not. It lacks a lot of features though. For example, to reset it, you need to clear the database entries for the addon and then reinstall it.

    I also enjoy the custom action mod which allows you to add new pages/actions to the forum.

    RSS feed poster is another good one to help give you more content and work behind the scenes a bit.

    The paid version of Menu Editor Lite is a good one for cleaning up the menu.

    VigLink is the newest one I have been adding, which makes life easier using VigLink on your SMF forum :)

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Do you know if there is also a chat option available?

    I have been using smf for years now.

    The plugins I use are:

    Pretty Urls
    Nofollow all links
    Ad management mod
    Related topics
    MetaTags Mod
    Sitemap
    Show your social media

    I prefer to add social sharing buttons manually without a mod since there is none that works the way I like.

    Good luck.
