I’m about to go to Red Alert! These rants have been building up in me. It’s time to get them out for all the world to see.
Over my 10 plus years of working with WordPress I’ve probably had a good look at close to 1,000 plugins. While I love advising which plugins you must have, the truth is, what plugins you must have is a function of exactly what you need to accomplish with your site.
Note: I’ve updated this post as so much has changed since I wrote about Gutenberg Plugins in November 2018.

You’ve heard this one, I’m sure. “Why don’t you get a new theme for your tired web site? It will breathe new life into your site and it’s easy to do.”
