One of my favorite things is hearing people share what plugins they use on a regular basis so I thought I would toss that question out to everyone as well. Hopefully we can all find some cool new plugins as well. Here are my top five:
Gravity Forms - It’s a commercial plugin, but it’s my go to for forms.
BruteProtect - You might be amazed how many unauthorized attacks you get (kinda scary actually) This guy helps block them
LeadIn - Recently started adding this to my sites to see how visitors use the site
WP Migrate DB Pro - I can’t begin to tell you how much time this plugin has saved me during dev (and after).
Launch Check - I use this plugin when launching a new site to make sure I didn’t miss anything obvious. (Disclaimer - I built this one to help me stop making stupid errors)
I would love to hear what you are using. Please post your top five in the format below.
Plugin Name - Description / Why you use it.
