The stack of plugins used in almost every WordPress site reflects what WP developers and designers consider essential for the layout and operation of a WordPress Site. The talk will introduce 4 categories for the Essential Plugin Stack :
1)Basic security plugins for all WP sites;
2)Key operational plugins for maintaining and running a WP site;
3)Component/widget plugins vital for layout and editing of menus, sidebars, posts & pages;
4)Conditional design plugins geared to the websites target usage/audience.
The presenter will then introduce his Essential Stack on a whiteboard. Then invite audience members to add/amend the Essential Plugins with their vital plugins. This process should hopefully then reveal a Truly Essential WordPress Plugin Stack. Free and pro/premium plugins will be considered with ratings and pricings.
