6:45 pm Evaluating Plugins: Strategies to Effectively Extend WordPress
Extending WordPress above and beyond core functionality is part of what makes WordPress so powerful. However, the sheer number of plugins available can be overwhelming. A strategy for evaluating plugins makes both developing and managing WordPress easier.
Kathy will share some key evaluation factors and comparison tools, discuss paid versus free plugins (do you get what you pay for?) and managing plugins/updates. Kathy will also share her expertise in researching plugin security history, and how to identify risky functionality.
Kathy Zant is a seasoned digital executive with over 20 years of web development experience for companies large and small. She's been using WordPress for over a decade. For the last 3+ years, she's been a security analyst and client partner for Wordfence, developing services for WordPress users to better understand and manage their site security.
