One of the best things about WordPress is its huge community of developers.
Whatever functionality you can dream of, there is probably a plugin that will accomplish it for you. But installing the wrong plugins – or even too many of the right ones – can be bad for your site.
Join David and guest Regina Smola of WP Security Lock for an in-depth look at WordPress plugins. Regina will share tips for keeping your site healthy, including
- How to distinguish the good plugins from the bad, so you don’t inadvertently open your site up to hackers.
- How to completely get rid of old plugins you no longer use (clicking the “deactivate” button is NOT enough).
- What can happen to a site when too many plugins are used, and what to do instead.
