    Hi,

    As you know different people use different WP plugins based on the type of site they have; blog, store, tube style etc but there are few plugins which I always install, regardless of type.

    here are mines:

    Classic Editor
    Jetpack
    Loginizer
    WP Super Cache
    Yoast SEO


    So what is your Must Have WP plugins?

    Same, it's super bloated (50% size of wp itself) and almost anything useful there can be put together with singular plugins.

    For me, def the plugin that gives the most overall performance increase is Hello Dolly.

    I'm using Jetpack for it's photon feature only (Image optimized and CDN), all other features disabled. I know that installing Jetpack for that feature only might be too much but TBH I can't find any other plugins to replace it (free, automatically optimize). You guys have any recommendations?

    Other plugins I install on every site are:
    Cache Enabler
    Either Sucuri or Wordfence
    Disable XML/RPC
    Yoast
