One of the biggest things about WordPress is the vast number of plugins available to download.
You can think of a WordPress plugin like downloading apps on your iPhone – With a major difference being; when you submit a IOS app to Apple it goes through several checks before being approved. However this is not the case with WordPress plugins.
Anyone with basic knowledge of coding can try their hand at creating a WordPress plugin. The problem with this is if the developer does not know what they are doing; could accidentally create a security vulnerability or even worse purposely create a malicious back door.
We would highly suggest throwing causing to the wind when downloading unknown developer plugins to your site. It could end up being a very costly mistake.
That’s why it’s always best to commission a web developer that can build plugins for scratch for your sites propose. This will keep your site lean, fast, less likely to have vulnerabilities and compatibilities issues down the road.
