The flexibility and power WordPress offers for the creation of a wide range of purposes is one of the main reasons which makes it the most popular CMS platform available. WordPress Plugins exist to perform just about every commonly requested function needed as well as some really special functions. The following list of WordPress Plugins gives us a good idea of what people use plugins for primarily and helps us identify some of the most reliable plugins on the WordPress plugins directory to date.
As we always advise, checking ratings, reviews, number of downloads and last date the plugin was updated are some of the best ways to assess the reliability of a plugin. It’s also way better to test plugins against a demo or development version of your site before deploying it live to ensure compatibility and to avoid any major problems or data loss. Additionally, backing up one’s site before installing plugins is always a good idea.
