Plugins Gone Wild

What many people don’t realize is that the amount of Plugins used on a WordPress site can greatly affect website performance. If Plugins are used poorly, it can affect the site in a negative manner such as increase hacking risk or slowing down site speed. If there are too many plugins installed, it could slow the website down significantly and even cause conflicts on the website. When a significant number of plugins are installed on a single site, there will be endless updates to ensure the site will work properly. If the site is not profitable for a developer, it may be abandoned with no support, which could also lead to hacking.

When it comes to WordPress, it should be avoided if possible to avoid custom coding.
