WordPress Plugin List
WordPress Plugin’s are usually free and serve you very well, they often come with a Pro version that cost, it’s up to you to judge if the upgrade is a benefit to your website’s purpose. These plugins I have tried and tested myself and find them very useful – if not I find a similar plugin to replace it = many hours of research and trials. I can install and employ as many as you think appropriate on your site, some of them – 1 to 5, I consider the must have plugins. Contact us to get a quote.
