How many plug-ins is too many?

Last Update: January 27, 2016

I keep finding new plug-in suggestions from tutorials I have been viewing. My question is, what is the max. I should have? Does it matter? I understand the more I have the slower my site may take to load? Thanks.

As a course of making the website better we will tend to add more plugins. There's no magic number.
Here's a blog the PJ did which asked the same question: hope that helps.

HI, the initial training start off with 5 plugins but as you move forward, other plugin will be suggested and you will find that adding more plugins is almost essential. There is no set number as to how many is too many. The best thing to do is to test the speed of your website each time you add a new plugin and if you find that your site has slowed down, you might be able to find an alternative plugin which is "softer"

wonderful, thank you for the advice. I was hesitant to add plug-ins as I thought it was a negative to add more and more.
