    Since you probably got a lot of good plugin ideas here, here is my advice. Use a little plugins as possible. Don't bloat your website with unnecessary plugins. I do use 3 or 4 plugins almost always. Including caching plugins, image optimization, the classic editor, woocommerce (when needed). But I try to avoid plugins. Beside that it adds bloat, they can be a security risk if the plugin wasn't built correct or hasn't been updated in a while.

    For me it's DIVI for fastest theme building.
    WP Rocket for most user friendly optimization.
    WP Fastest Cache for caching.
    Wordfence for secury.

    CiviCRM, Jitsi-meet for WP. I use others mentioned, but for overall value added, these have been the ones that give my site the most "Value Added" features out of the box.

    Agreed. I love Elementor, but it's really easy to keep adding Elementor Add-On plugins that really slow your site down.
    If you use Elementor as your page builder, try to just use the core Pro plugin and not buy a bunch of ultimate addons, unless there is some amazing functionality that you desperately need.

    To optimize images for free (and a lot of more good features), try Clearfy.

    My must have plugins depends on the site but I would say these ones are always:
    • WP Rocket (for now the best caching plugin in my opinion)
    • Yoast Premium (again, for now is the one that works best for me)
    • Clearfy (image optimizations for free and several other interesting features)
