A list of plugins that I regularly use for Wordpress sites.
ACF, create custom fields for a specific page or template. Use case examples: making text editable, images for a carousel or just any custom content field really.
Updraft, setup automatic backups that can be automatically uploaded to a remote cloud storage.
Polylang, simple site translation (pages, strings and medias).
Contact Form 7, basic form plugin with easy wp_mail integration.
Akismet, filter spam comments, free for personal use.
EWWW Image Optimizer, lossless image optimization on upload.
W3 Total Cache, caching and code minification.
