Recommended & Useful WordPress Plugins

A list of popular plugins that are useful and recommended for most WordPress websites.

  • Jetpack by WordPress.com

    Jetpack is a "Swiss Army Knife" type of plugin. From social sharing buttons to website uptime monitoring - it packs many (free) features and some paid features.

  • Wordfence Security

    Secure your WordPress website with Wordfence. This plugin provides amazing protection for your website at zero cost. Very easy and friendly to set up.

  • Yoast SEO (aka WordPress SEO)

    Arguably the most popular SEO plugin for WordPress. Unless you have reasons to use a different plugin, this one is probably the only one you need.

  • Shortcodes Ultimate

    According to best practices it is recommended to use shortcodes via a plugin instead of having them inside theme code. This is why our themes contain zero shortcodes.

  • W3 Total Cache

    If you have more than 5 daily visitors then you need a caching plugin. This one is one of the two most popular ones. More features, but more difficult to set up.

  • WP Super Cache

    The second of the two most popular caching plugins. Easy to set up and owned by Automattic (developers of WordPress). If you are only getting started with WordPress then start with this one.

  • TablePress

    Currently WordPress doesn't have an included tool to build Tables inside of posts and pages. This free plugin fills the gap.

  • Loco Translate

    Most plugins and themes are developed in English. This plugin helps you easily translate texts that are coded directly into theme files (like button labels, back-end strings, etc.)

  • WPML

    The most popular (premium) WordPress plugin used to create multilingual WordPress websites. All our themes are compatible with WPML.

  • Polylang

    Polylang is another plugin that can be used to create multilingual WordPress websites. Both a FREE and a PRO version are available.

  • Insert Headers and Footers

    Insert your Google Analytics, AdWords Tracking, Facebook Pixel and other third-party scripts via plugins. This will ensure that your code is not lost when switching themes.

  • Contact Form 7

    This is the most popular free plugin for creating and inserting forms into posts/pages. We recommend pairing this plugin with the valuable (and free) Flamingo plugin.

  • Disable Emojis

    Emoji support was introduced back in version 4.2 of WordPress and is enabled by default. This means that your website loads unnecessary resources (scripts) with little to no use. This plugin automatically disables this feature.

  • Regenerate Thumbnails

    Most WordPress themes define and use custom image sizes (in addition to the sizes that are defined in Settings > Media). If you install a new theme on a WordPress website with existing content, you will most likely need this plugin during the transition.
