You have Jetpack and Askimet, but here are a few not-so-popular WordPress plugins that you need to make your life easier.
7 Must-Have Free WordPress Plugins
Other the years, I have learned: there’s a plugin for everything. Like seriously – most challenges in WordPress can be solved with a plugin. Plugins are easier to install and download. Here are some of my favorites!
Delightful Downloads makes keeping track of your downloads easy and countable, and I like it much better than just linking to Dropbox, Google Docs, or the WordPress file. You simply input the code where you want the “Download now” box to be.
This is a great plugin for adding a quick disclosure to posts with an affiliate warning, health/liability warning, or review warning.
I honestly don’t know where I’d be without Term Management Tools. It allows you to make bulk edits on categories and tags! You can merge, set parents, delete, etc. – all within a click of a button.
With rebrands, deleting, and life, broken links are bound to happen, but can have a negative effect on your site. This plugin alerts you to broken links, allowing you to fix them!
After trying several comment reply plugins, this one was ultimately my favorite, since it is quick to set up and is reliable.
With the rise of Pinterest, images are a way to visually communicate. However, they can take a long time to load. WP Smush compresses images so they can load faster for your readers.
I needed this post especially when I had just switched from Blogger, so I could just direct people to /thispost instead of /2015-05-20-this-post-here.html.
Social Warfare does everything from SEO to social media sharing settings to social media buttons. This one is paid, at $24 a year.
