One of the great things about WordPress is the plethora of available free plugins for expanding and customizing your website. However, with most things available on the internet there is a measure of risk both in terms of security and poor performance. At 1SmallClick we have chosen to limit the number of available plugins you can use. This is done to ensure your privacy and protection and to ensure your website performs optimally. By default the list of available plugins we provide are listed below.
- Jetpack by WordPress.com – This Plugin provides awesome features to all WordPress installs that previously were only available to those who hosted directly with WordPress.com. Today these features are available to everyone. For a complete list of these features visit JetPack.me.
- WordPress SEO – Developed by Joost de Valk, this plugin is the most complete search engine optimization (SEO) plugin that exists today. Take control of your titles, meta tags, and more to ensure the internet search engines accurately display your website in their search results. For a complete list of features list visit Yoast.com.
- Contact Form 7 – Labeled as “Just another contact form”, this plugin is a simple and versatile contact form to allow your visitors to get in touch with you. Visit their website to learn more about Contact Form 7.
If there is something else you want to use, let us know and we will evaluate it or provide an alternative that we feel will provide better performance or security.
