Quick WordPress reminders or tips that shouldn’t be forgot [a moving checklist]
- Pick plugins carefully. Look at the number of active installations and user ratings — higher numbers reflect its usefulness and security. No one in their right mind will use an known insecure plugin. Look at the date when it was last updated — it shows how active the developers are in modifying, upgrading, improving their plugin.
- Pick themes with care. Check the theme details, click on Live Preview and see how the site looks with it. If I cannot do a Live Preview, move on to the next that interests you. I usually look the the featured themes as I assume they have been looked over by a human third party not involved in the theme’s development.
