Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Ever wondered how to choose the best WP plugin from the myriad of Plugins listed for any particular task? Once you have found a few plugins that will do the job you have in mind, use these steps to make your choice.

  • Check when the plugin was last updated. (Within the year is better)
  • Check how many downloads there have been. (More is better)
  • Read the reviews and ratings.

Search your local area for such groups).
