There are a lot of free plug ins. Paid plug ins, like themes, are 'pro' version. Generally, if you choose plug ins that have a great star rating, have been downloaded over 100,000 times and are recently updated are worth a try. If you don't like the plugins , it is easily deactivated. Sometimes, plugins interact with each other and cause trouble with your website. If this happens, you should de-activate each plugins separately to find the culprit.

Some plug ins that are worth installing are:

  1. A back up plug in. (search wp-backup)
  2. An image plug in for your widgets. (search wp-images)
  3. Image resize plug in - saves space (smush)
  4. SEO plug in - Yoast/Jetpack (connects with Google for site statistics)
  5. Shop plug in - (woocommerce)
