10 Plugins Your WordPress Site Needs
WordPress is a great platform for so many different reasons, including its power as a framework and flexibility with different themes and plugins that can take one website structure, be utilized by millions of different people, and each experience is both unique and great. You already know that we love Standard Theme by the 8bit team, but we have never formally come out with what plugins we use for this site.
Before we get into the plugins, let me reiterate for those that do not know my stance. Plugins are great, but can cause a lot of problems if not used sparingly. Each plugin you use requires database calls, hooks into the WordPress theme, and sometimes unnecessary clutter, so be picky about what you use. Too many plugins can cause your site to run slowly or even crash it and deliver it dead on arrival. I personally subscribe to a minimalist approach with plugins, only using the ones I absolutely need and I would urge you to have that same precaution.
