You may want to install other plugins on your site in the future to add functionality. There are a few places that you can look for plugins:
WordPress.org Plugins - WordPress’ official site, where you can filter by tags and popularity.
Tidy Repo - An independent site that tests and verifies plugins before recommendation.
Code Canyon - A site featuring more than 3,000 custom premium plugins, also filterable.
Google - Can’t find what you’re looking for? Google it! There are tons of plugin sites out there.
There are a few things you should look at when considering a new plugin:
Number of downloads - A plugin that has lots of downloads is generally going to be better than one that has very few.
Plugin ratings - Ratings aren’t everything, but overall good ratings are a positive sign.
Plugin reviews - Read through a few reviews of the plugin you’re investigating and see if there are certain complaints that come up again and again.
Last updated - The best plugins are regularly updated to keep up with WordPress updates and add new functionality. You should avoid any plugins that haven’t been updated in a long time.
- Support - Some plugins offer support and others do not.
