Alex’s Session: “Top 20 Plugins That You Can’t Live Without”

If you’re self-hosting your WordPress website, you’ll want to extend its functionality with plugins. However, there are more than 23.500 free plugins in the WP library. You can of course visit WordPress’ Most Popular Plugin Directory, but it’s a potential time sink and you’ll miss many great ones by not digging deeper. So, we’ve shaken down the interwebs for you to come up with this list of must-have plugins you won’t know how you survived without.

Stay tuned for our last speaker announcements in March!
