I’ll be updating this blog post from time to time with my list of essential WordPress Plugin’s. These are the plugins that I find myself using time and time again on different sites because they are reliable.

Divi Builder from Elegant Themes

See https://www.elegantthemes.com

This is a great page builder for easily creating professional websites. There are alternatives but I’ve found that the Divi Page builder has a good support eco-system online and Elegant Themes are constantly developing and adding new features.

Child Theme Configurator By Lilaea Media

See https://wordpress.org/plugins/child-theme-configurator/

When working with third party themes it’s essential that you don’t directly change the vendors theme files because any changes you make will be wiped out when you receive updates.

The correct method of making local customisations is to create a child theme. You can do this manually but I find it really helpful to use this great little plugin.
