    When you first visit Hotaru's Plugin Management page in Admin, the number of plugins can be quite overwhelming, especially if you've uploaded the Quick Start Plugin Pack or are working from the SVN.

    Install order for a social bookmarking site

    Here's a quick start guide for the order in which the main plugins should be installed:

    First, install the plugins that have no dependencies:

    SB Base
    User Signin
    Widgets


    Then install key plugins that depend on those:

    Users
    Submit
    Comments
    Category Manager


    Now those are done, the rest are easy. Here are the other must-have plugins to bring your social bookmarking site together:

    Categories
    Search
    Tags
    Vote

    Post Manager
    User Manager
    Comment Manager


    Now you're free to pick and choose other plugins to enhance your site from those that remain.

    When you're done, enable the DB_CACHE from the Admin -> Settings page.

    Configure the plugins

    Next, click Plugin Settings and go through the list of settings pages for each plugin to configure your site.
