Last thursday was the first WordPress Meetup in Apeldoorn organized by Karim Osman and Max.nl. I held a short presentation about how you choose good plugins and/or themes. Regularly I get questions about good or bad plugins and how you find them. So in the talk I talked about the things you should look for, when choosing a plugin or theme.
Here are 9 points you could look at when you’re searching for a good plugin or theme in the WordPress.org respository.
- Description / Changelog
- Latest Update
- Number of downloads
- Reviews on forums, blogs or other websites
- The authors reactions on the WordPress.org support forums
- Ask the community!
I would like to thank everybody who attended the WordPress meetup and a specially Karim and Max.nl! On Apeldoorn Direct is a great recap of the meetup.
