UPDATED: The 21 Most Popular WordPress Plugins

For the past 3 years I've kept an updated list on the 21 most popular WordPress plugins.



At the end of 2020 I updated my list as determined by wordpress.org. I found a few surprises and you might too.

In some cases these are not the best WordPress plugins. IMHO some of these are not even the best of breed in their category. I think of this as a popularity contest to see what others think and what plugins people are using for their sites.

What To Check Before Launching Your New Web Site

No better way to start 2021 with my article reviewing the things you should be doing before launching - or re-launching - your web site.



Ok, maybe there is a better way, but late last year I prepared a checklist of what to be looking for as we got ready to launch a client site.

As I wrote the list I was reminded of how multi-disciplinary web site design and development truly is. Reasons why so many, like me, love it.

PLUGIN: Media Deduper

Ever want to remove unused images from your Media Library but weren't sure how to do it?



Sure, you could go through your library and delete them one-by-one but that could take a long time.  You're liable to delete ones that are still being used and miss those that no longer are in use.

I wanted to remove a lot of images from my library as part of my site overhaul which is now 90% complete. No need to keep around images no longer in use.

Before you remove any images you need to try out what you are doing with a Staging Site. I suggest Media Deduper or an alternative, Media Cleaner. I found the former to be more accurate in determining which images are no longer in use.
