Most appreciated WordPress plugins 2017

Most appreciated WordPress plugins 2017

It is the end of the year and I am making a list, the most appreciated WordPress plugins I have used in 2017. Plugins extend the functionality of WordPress and need to flexibel and trustworthy. Here is my list with some exploitation:

1. GravityForms

Build anything from a contactform to a ticket-system that organizes your business. Very user- and developer friendly and stable plugin updates. This is not a free plugin, but the investment can be worth it.

2. WP Rocket

This is another paid plugin but it has made an innovative leap in 2017. Caching plugins have had a problem with styling above the fold and WP Rocket solved the problem this year. It managed to make a generic system to load styles and scripts in the footer and make a copy of the necessary styles in the head.

3. ACF

ACF or advanced custom fields is a very flexible and durable way to add meta data to anything in WordPress. It is user- and developer friendly and FREE. Combining this with custom posts it gives you the ability to serve most data models in WordPress.

This plugin shows you what theme template parts have been used to view the current page. It does it from a simply box in the admin bar. If you quickly need to learn the structure of an unfamiliar theme this is your tool.
