This post will show you a list of all the most important WordPress Plugins from 2013, that we personally use these days. These plugins are must have plugins (but do not use them all at once; tho-P). The following list contains plugins that we have tried and tested in WordPress 3.6, and in most cases, are used in the live sites. We hope that’s helpful. If you can recommend any plugins that you think would improve the collection, leave us a comment below the post.
