Optimal number of plugins to have?
I know the recommended number of plugins is 5 or less.
But there are a lot of essentials that are needed e.g.:
- SEO plugin,
- social buttons plugin,
- google analytics plugin,
- pretty links plugin,
- form maker plugin,
- the ewww image optimiser, the Header/Footer plugin ...
... and there's just no more room for any other plugin; at least not without affecting my site speed (as it is, it seems very very slow already).
There are so many cool plugins I want to use to jazz up my site ... even just a couple more plugins would make me happy ...
How are people resolving this juggling act with plugins? Please share!
