Free WordPress Plugins: The Top10 of November 2015

Top 10 Fresh, Free WordPress Plugins of November 2015

The best thing about WordPress is its adaptability. Everything you can think of is generally possible, and a lot of it can be done very fast. You just need to search through the official WordPress plugin index to find the features of your desire and even more. Just install a plugin and your website becomes a bit better and more functional. But be careful: you shouldn’t use every plugin. You need a guide through the repository. That’s why I present ten free WordPress plugins every month. They are the best plugins of the last four weeks and with them, you’re always on the safe side.
