The WordPress community is fantastic in continuing to provide amazing plugins which add great functionality to your site quickly and easily at no or very little cost.

Here at WPZOOM we continuously recommend our customers to use plugins for extra features they need on their website and keep their themes unmodified, in order to prevent possible problems in the future that may occur during theme updates. That’s why we are dedicating today’s post to some useful plugins for WordPress that deserve more attention (and downloads/sales, of course).

So, let’s begin:


1. Advanced Excerpt (Free)

With every new WordPress version, numerous features are being added to the Theme Customizer, and it seems that in the future you’ll be able to change everything in the theme from one page: widgets, colors and even menus.

We’ve already implemented numerous styling options and other theme settings in our latest two themes: Angle and Capital, and one thing that we found that’s missing in the Customizer, is an option to reset everything to default settings.

Luckily, we’ve provided a solution to this problem by releasing a new plugin called Customizer Reset.

Essential WordPress Plugins for 2013

Written by Alex Denning on in Plugins 37 comments

One of the great things about WordPress (apart from the amazing themes, of course!) is the plugin system, which allows users to “plug in” bits of pre-built functionality to their site.

Here at WPZOOM we’re often asked to recommend WordPress plugins to add various features to people’s sites, so here we’ve rounded up some of the top essential plugins for running a powerful WordPress site in 2013.

WordPress SEO

Yoast’s WordPress SEO Plugin is hands-down one of the best plugins for WordPress SEO around and is used by hundreds of thousands of bloggers.
