Nice posting and thanks!
Very good points indeed. It is easy to mess up your WordPress fast if you make the wrong choices. I like to add also:
- Never ever use pirated plugins that you can buy off some a bit shady websites for much cheaper price than the original authors website. Not only are they often not the latest version and might not ever be updated but they may also be altered code-wise so you run the risk of a double whammy in terms of security issues. Don´t try to save a few bucks which might costly you dearly later.
- Do not have more than 20+ plugins installed if necessary. A rule of thumb here is “less is more“
- A common very beginners mistake is that they overload he system with tons of different plugins which then not only slows down the whole website, but also introduces potential security risk and definitely code crashes between the plugins and WP itself which causes incompatibility issues that might even might bring your WordPress website to its knee.
- Use code instead of plugins if you can. Code is always faster and uses less of the server’s resources such as CPU and memory.
and hmm yep! That is fit or me. 🙂
Follow the crowd and you be just another cheep.
