Improving Your WordPress Website with Plugins

At a recent meetup we spoke about WordPress Plugins – What they are.. How they work… and How to get the most out of them…

As promised, below is a list of some of our favourite plugins… We usually install these on pretty much all of the sites we create – although there are a number of other specialist ones that we use for more specific functionality.

All of these (except for BackupBuddy) are Free and available from the Plugin Repository simply by Going to Plugins > Add New .. and searching for the plugin name.

  • BackupBuddy (the BEST WordPress site Backup/Migration plugin)
  • Google XML Sitemaps
  • Google Analytics by Monsterinsights
  • All In One SEO Pack
  • Contact Form 7
  • Contact Form 7 Honeypot
  • Duplicate Post
  • Enable Media Replace
  • Black Studio TinyMCE Widget not just install plugins because you can.. make sure that you understand what they do and that you need the functionality… also ensure that you keep them up to date.
