Your list of must-use plugins?

Jul. 12, 2018

There are dozens of "X Essential WordPress Plugins You Should Use", but I thought a community discussion and a community-driven list would be preferred.

So what plugins do you use on your sites?

I'll start:
- MainWP for managing multiple sites.
- The SEO Framework instead of Yoast SEO because of less bloat.
- EWWW.io for image optimization.
- Akismet
- Accelerated Mobile Pages by Ahmed Kaludi and Mohammed Kaludi
- Super Socializer if the theme doesn't have built-in social features.

That's about it. All the other plugins I use depend on the use case.


How long have you been using MainWP?
How many sites are you managing?
Did you notice plugins missing or deactivated after upgrade?
I'm looking for an alternative sulution for WPremote.


I haven't had any issues with missing or deactivating plugins. Actually haven't noticed any bugs whatsoever

Probably something like that:

- Ad Injection
- Cookie Consent
- Icegram
- NK Google Analytics
- Really Simple SSL
- Share Buttons by AddThis
- Simple Wordpress Backup
- Yoast SEO

Dave Warfel

- iThemes Security
- UpdraftPlus for backups
- ShortPixel for image optimization
- WP Rocket for performance & caching
- Code Snippets for quick custom plugins & functions
- Yoast SEO (even though it's bloated :-/)
- Duplicate Post (only sites that produce ongoing content)

For any site accepting comments...
- Akismet
- Basic Comment Quicktags

John Locke

- Yoast
- ACF Pro
- Gravity Forms
- Simple Sitemap
- Custom Post Type UI

Blant Simonetti

- Ad Injection
- Cookie Consent
