The beauty of WordPress is its ability to scale. You can start small and build out your website as you go. Adding functionality to any WordPress is done with Plugins. So it goes without saying you want to carefully choose which WordPress plugin to use for your unique function you want to add.
A few things to consider when choosing WordPress plugins:
- Is the Plugin software up to date? You never want to use a plugin that has not been updated. It may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.
- How much control will you have over the layout when displayed on the website page?
- Is the Plugin compatible with your Theme?
- Is the Plugin salable? Meaning can the plugin handle future growth of content.
So take your time and review all plugin options because changing plugins after you have a few years of content written can create a lot of work to reenter all that content and that doesn’t even address the URL redirect issues.
