If you are reading this, chances are you are aware of what WordPress is. If you fall in the small percentage of the population that has escaped this term, let me clarify. Like every other rapidly expanding market, the internet was constantly shaping itself into a simpler, easier to manage version of itself. Day by day, update on update, new remarcable discovery after another led us to the creation of WordPress. Long gone are the days of HTML and CSS, the gods of visual design and web maintenance have blessed us with WordPress. No more spaghetti code and tangled messes of lines. The design is visual, as it should be.
Now that we have grasped the meaning of WordPress, let’s try to summarize what a plug-in is. Let’s draw a parallel between us, as beings, and WordPress. Crazy, I know, but hear me out. Imagine that the webpage is our body. The way anybody looks is thanks to their genetic material – WordPress. Our DNA is something like our parents using WordPress with a very limited amount of visual commands. Although, very limited in a visual sense, what we have an abundance of is plug-ins. The manners that our loved ones and close ones taught us, willingly or unwillingly, are our little human plug-ins. Carrying on with the metaphor, the functionality and “manners” of your webpage depend on your plug-ins, so choose what you teach your children.
Do you dream of your webpage being safe when not under supervision ? If it was your child, wouldn’t you call a babysitter ?

One of the best, if not the best, plug-in to take care of your webpages traffic.
Instantly take control of redirects, links, regain and manage traffic. Don’t get me wrong, WP 301 Redirects is a really good tool, but it is a tool that was made out of necessity. To quote the people that built it – “We built the 301 Redirects plugin out of necessity to fix issues that every site has. Other sites linking to its pages that don’t exist! Instead of frustrating users with ‘clever’ 404 pages, redirect them to the page they really wanted to see.” The most advanced link-scanning plug-in to date. Covers all your tight spots, from the links you have posted that might be out-of-date, to the ones that just crash out of nowhere, WP 301 Redirects has got your back.
How many times have you clicked on a plug-in to update it? Countless, probably. How many times has everything gone sideways after that? In my personal experience, the number is pretty close. What you wouldn’t just do to take the update back, and just keep your page un-updated until the time is right. Sometimes the fix is easy, you can just poke and click yourself out of a bad position, but sometimes it’s a nightmare. Think of WP Reset like of a earthquake insurance policy. The chances of a catastrophe are slim, but never zero. Imagine an earthquake leveling your house to the ground, and you having the ability to say “A-a nature, not today !”, pushing one button and *poof*, your house is just like it was before the crisis. Invest in your webpages safety.
If you’ve made it this far down the article, you probably are a person who is already pretty educated about plug-ins and WordPress, but again, I might be wrong. So in that case, WooCommerce is an ecommerce plugin for WordPress. It makes creating and managing an online store simple, with reasonable levels of flexibility and several vital features such as inventory and tax management, secure payments, and shipping integration.
If you’re fighting a battle with an ecommerce site, fighting alongside WooCommerce gives you a good chance. WooCommerce is basically a plug-in that has its own plug-ins. Crazy, I know. Like “Inception” but for WordPress. Some of the plug-ins for WooCommerce worth mentioning are :
- WooCommerce Table Rate Shipping – Pro
- WooCommerce Order Export – Pro
