Elite Plugins You Should Have for WordPress
I call these elite plugins because they are some of the most awesome plugins that sometimes are not well known, some are well known, but they all have Apex predator level awesomeness. They all are excellent for their price range and all provide excellent results. Please note that plugins that are not sold generally will have their developers stop updating them. That is not always the case but it is the case often. Just be aware of that.
