WordPress Plugin Functionality

Make your website function better with WordPress plugins.

Do not install a haphazard mismash of plugins just because they show up on a “most popular” list, or because a guru says they are good, or even just because you like the look of them.

Install plugins that help you fulfil your web business purpose.



There are thousands of plugins for WordPress, and also some themes that add functionality.

I’ve been pleasantly surprised by many, yet frustratingly disappointed by others. My purpose at shrewdies.net is to show you the best WordPress plugins, and how to get the best out of them.

Where I can’t find what I need, I will build it, and share it with you. In fact, that is the WordPress plugin project that I am working on at the moment.

When it is finished, I’ll come back and develop this section further. In the meantime, if you have any burning questions about WordPress plugins, please ask in the website support forum. The same applies to any other aspect of website functionality, and do not limit yourself to questions – shared experiences and opinions are always good here.
