Have you wondered what plugins other bloggers are using? Some bloggers are kind enough to share this information by providing a “plugin list” page. However, most bloggers do not do this. So, how do we extract the list of plugins other bloggers are using if they are not sharing them willingly?
hack them! go through a backdoor.
I was reading this article on how we can make our WordPress blog safer by putting a blank index.html file in /plugins/ directory. Only then did I realize we can view the list of plugins that are saved by a blogger. This trick will work provided that the blogger did not block the directory in anyway.
Go ahead and try it. Just type http://www.blogname.com/wp-content/plugins/ and view the list of plugins others are using. You can’t download the plugin directly from the folder. Once you get the file name of the plugin, do a search on Google to find the plugin.
