Hello WA family,
so I received a message from a member who was trying to comment on my site but couldn't due to possibly a server problem. A couple of days ago, I noticed that my google chromes kept sending a pop-up every time I click my website page saying "Untrusted site" with reasons like the site is new, etc.
So, I went to check my website health, and it recommended I reduce my plugins to less than 5. So, my question is how can I add important plugins without compromising my website health (loading speed, anti-spam, losing data (rollback)?
Thanks for helping out?

Depending on what you need to solve on your site, you might not need a plugin.
For example, if you want to increase the speed on your site,
like using lazy load for images and videos - you don't need a plugin!
You can do it yourself, read my training: And here: How to speed your site without using a plugin for images.

In almost every issue you want to deal with your site, there are solutions that are not solved by plugins only

Thanks Marian,
I will go through the trainings you presented and see how it goes especially now that I have removed all my plugins.

Plug-ins are awesome but we must be careful not to bog our site down. Load times are very important so I always load one at a time and add one each day as they pass my testing. Sometimes we have to find a plug-in that works with our themes and browsers. Good luck Benson! :)

Hi,
You right, I read about all the plugins that my theme said is compatible and I figured they all made sense. As a busy guy trying to automate things and find the easy way, so I added all not knowing it will come back and bite me lol!!!
The great thing about been brave is that you make mistake and learn from it.
Thanks for all your response.
Stay bless.

You can have more than 5 plugins, that is ok, as long as they are good plugins. I.e. well coded and maintained.

When you say you get an error of untrusted, do you have a screenshot?

Hi Christoper,
Thanks so much. Unfortunately, I didn't take a screenshot.
Because it doesn't do that when I open my website in safari so I initially thought it could be my Norton security installation until Catherine brought it to my attention.
Yes, it didn't make any sense to me to only have less than 5 plugins when the website already came with pre-installed All-in-one SEO, classic editor, and Kramer image optimizer. Then I added Sassy Social Share, Rollback, Sitekit for Google analytics, WPSSO, Ad inserter, Something like inserter header and footer.
Immediately I deleted all to five, my website health went back to 100%.
If I add more plugins and it happens, I will take a screenshot.
Thanks again.

No worries, it sounds like one of those plugins might be the culprit, but it's not all of them or the quantity that is causing the issue. Let me know when it happens again.
