Our PERFORMpro & PERFORMelite Feature Premium Plugins
Our plans include access to a wide range of plugins, featuring both premium plugins from respected third-party developers and those from the WordPress plugin repository. The number of plugins available goes up along with the price of our plans, and premium plugins are only included on our higher priced plans. Looking to create powerful forms with Gravity Forms or build an e-commerce site with a Cart66 shopping cart? Our premium plugins have you covered, and their value can be worth more than the cost of our service.
We’ve tested an extensive range of plugins, and we continue to test both updated versions of existing plugins as well as new introductions in a separate development environment running the “bleeding edge” version of WordPress. You won’t waste hours searching for the right plugin and wondering if it will break your WordPress site. We eliminate the guesswork and the searching by giving you access to stable plugins that you can activate as you choose with a few mouse clicks.
For all plugins, we have a few guidelines. We only install plugins from the WordPress plugin repository or from respected third party developers. Generally speaking, we install the latest stable release of a plugin, but if there is a tested beta or development version that solves a known problem for a range of users, we’ll consider installing a beta or development version instead of the latest stable release. The version we’ve installed is shown in the table below. We’re looking to find what we consider to be the best plugins in a given area, and we’ll install that plugin and possibly 1 or 2 alternates, because we take seriously our role to make the right selections. We fully support the WordPress team’s ideal of “decisions, not options.”
Keep in mind that since many of the plugins on our list are from unpaid open-source developers, development can stop without notice. When active development or support stops, it’s often only a matter of time before a plugin is no longer usable. We may have to drop support for plugins that aren’t updated or are discovered to break a WordPress site. After all, you don’t want us making it easy for you to install that type of plugin. If we have to drop support for a plugin, we’ll always give you as much notice as possible and try to include at least 1 replacement offering similar functionality. And as hard as we try to curate the plugins we make available, plugin compatibility sometimes comes down to the mix of plugins you install on your WordPress site. If the mix that you choose to install creates a problem, we’ll help you get it sorted out.
