WordPress Plugins can get a great asset to any developer. However make sure the plugins you use are maintained and current.
When you are selecting a plugin look at not only the reviews but how many installs and the plugin has and when it was last updated.
This information can be found below the plugin description.
If the plugin isn’t compatible with your version of WordPress don’t use it.
If the plugin hasn’t been updated in less than a year don’t use it. There are plenty of options out there.
Over the next few weeks I’ll provide you some of my favorite plugins and why we like them.
