Plugins Gone Wild
What many people don’t realize is the amount of Plugins used on a WordPress site can greatly affect website performance. The last thing you want is to have your plugins gone wild! If Plugins are used poorly, it can affect the site in a negative manner. For example, it can increase hacking risk or slowing down site speed. If there are too many plugins installed, it could slow the website down significantly. Plus, it 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.
