WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems in the world, powering an estimated 30% of the sites on the Internet. One of the main reasons for WP’s ever-increasing popularity is the fact that it’s so customizable—it can be made to do almost anything, serve any purpose. And plugins are the key to customizing WordPress. So what is a plugin, exactly? Simply put, a plugin is just a bit of software written to work with WordPress to help it do something more than it normally does “out of the box”. In other words, it takes your existing WP installation and adds some new functionality that it didn’t have before. Plugins let you do more with WordPress—and because there are literally thousands of them to choose from, they let you do almost anything you could ever want or need to do. In this article, we’ll take you on a tour of some of the best plugins on the market that will help you develop better, faster, safer WordPress sites.
