Plugin Description: This will create 4 ad zones:
1. Headerinlude - This if perfect for inline ad systems like Kontera where you need to add script tags inside head.
2. Top Ad - This is in the header template underneath the navigation bar.
3. Inline Ads - These are ads between posts.
4. Footer Ad - This is in the footer template above the bottom navigation bar.

These allaround musthave mods should probably suffice.
For starters?

Good thread, Tom. I'm interested to see some of the goodies I haven't found yet.

I'm using myBB v1.4.4 - mods I have installed (all available from http://mods.mybboard.net)

No need to add them to the original post if they are already listed once in the thread. ;)

Well if this thread gets many replies - I don't think many people will go through the thread looking for MUST HAVE MODS.

I would suggest the videolink one (Ok is mine), but I think is a Must have for every forum that wants to embed video and audio in it.
It is FREE (you do not have to subscribe to anything), and also you can embed 200+sites at this moment.
It is working wit MyBB 1.4.* and also with MyBB1.2.*

Another plugin that I will suggest is: Hide From Guests
It has:
- possibility to show only x numbers of characters from message,
- to show or not the signature
- to show or not links
- to show or not the images
- to show or not code
- to show or not the quote
- To choose in what forums you want or do not want to hide each from the above (0 will hide in all the forums)
- for portal you have to select 0 (zero) as the option for the forums.
- it is working fine with any SEO software existent
- all the options are independent one of each other you can chose only one, two ... or all of them, will not interfere one with the other.
- you can change the language. At this moment it is translated in english, french, romanian, italian, arabic and hebrew languages. (all of them in the zip file.

Again it is FREE, and again it is mine :p

My favorite MyBB plugins are:
MyPS, MyBlogs, MyShop, MyBB Subscription plugin, and the PaidtoPromote plugin. :)
The most important plugin is the SEO plugin by spicefuise.com ;)

This is one of the BEST kept secrets!

It is called XThreads.
http://mybbhacks.zingaburga.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=31

With that you can add a downloads system, blog, gallery, and a slew of other things. Possibly one of the most complex/biggest plugins in all of mybb and best of all it is FREE.

A number of other goodies on that site as well. All are free ofcourse.

Also one of the other most used plugins is the Games Section. A full Arcade complete with tournaments etc. This is one of the best arcades on the market of any of the forum scripts that remains free.

Brilliant, thank you.

I did see those mods but thought they were for showing members only.

Just installed and it works a charm :)
