Interesting Free WordPress Plug-in

This post is to summarize some of my favorite free plug-ins used in my blogs and forums. All of them are free. They are used for certain purpose and it will be used based on requirements. Many of them are widely used  alredy, such as, Akismet Anti-Spam, Jetpack by WordPress.com, WP Super Cache, wpForo, Yoast SEO, Cloudflare, etc. Here, I am trying to put some of special purpose used plug-ins.  

If you found some interesting ones, let me know. I will try them out then put it here. 



    Easy Table of Contents

    It is a user friendly, featured focused plugin which allows you to insert a table of contents into your posts, pages and custom post types. Tons of features. You can find it from this link.


    It gives your readers a easy way to see your article's structure and navigate to the interesting part. 



    All-in-One WP Migration

    This plugin exports your WordPress website including the database, media files, plugins and themes with no technical knowledge required. Here is plug-in link at wordpress.org. 
    The free version has size limitation for 500MB, after you installed another extension "All-in-One WP Migration File Extension". It is enough for me since all of my screenshots and photos stored at CDN.


    Featured Image from URL (FIFU)

    This plug-in helps reduce the efforts spent on thumbnail regeneration, image optimization and never-ending imports. You can easily link your article's thumbnail to a external image or first image in your article. 

    It also helps save your storage in your media folder, which also dramatically helps to reduce your backup file size. 


    WP External Links

    This link automatically configures your external links put some configuration around it, such as opening external links in a new tab or window, controlling "nofollow" and "noopener", setting font icon; SEO friendly.





    Encrypt WordPress with a plugin

    WordPress plugin- My Private Site ,  is a plugin specially used to encrypt WordPress, which can restrict access very easily.

    After installing the plugin, select Settings – Private Siteheck the Private Site option to encrypt the entire WordPress site.
    My Private Site

    Only the logged-in user can access the website after encryption, and other people will automatically jump to the login page.

    This method is highly recommended for newbies and users who use virtual hosting, it is simple and easy to use


    If you use WordPress built with Pagoda Panel, then the encryption will be very simple. Pagoda Panel has a built-in website encryption function.

    Open the setting options of the corresponding website in the pagoda panel and select the website directory
    Turn on password access and set a strong password that only you know

    Pagoda Set Website Password Access

    When you visit the website again, you will see the following password box. Only enter the correct account and password before you can continue to access
    Website needs to enter account password to access

    This method can cooperate with the Private Site plug-in above to achieve double encryption


    Visual Form Builder is a plugin that allows you to build and manage all kinds of forms for your website in a single place. Building a fully functional contact form takes only a few minutes and you don’t have to write one bit of PHP, CSS, or HTML! By the way, the default 2 digits verification method helps to defeat those spammers. 

    WPForms definitely will be better. But once it comes into attachment feature, it will charge you $39.50/year.
