As mentioned in an earlier post, we’ve recently been putting a lot of time and effort into creating a series of beginner-level guides to WordPress — and today, I’m pleased to say we’ve another to add to the list: Recommended WordPress Plugins. This new guide essentially details almost fifty plugins. Now, I know what you’re thinking: another list! And well, that’s partly true of course, however, what we’ve tried to do, rather than just listing a huge number of plugins with sometimes overlapping features, is to include just one plugin that best represents a particular way of adding new functionality within WordPress.
For example, instead of listing ten different contact form plugins, we’ve chosen just one (Ninja Forms) – and in order to acknowledge that this may not suit everyone, we’ve gone a little step further and below each of our recommendations, we’ve also included a short list of top alternatives (such as Gravity Forms, WPForms, Contact Form 7, etc).
