WordPress uses what’s called a “plugin” to enhance or add capability to your web site. These plugins are contributed by developers some for free and some requiring a fee to use. Plugins I have found useful for my site are listed below.
Child Theme Configurator – Creates Child Themes
Yoast SEO – Search Engine Optimization
UpdraftPlus-Backup and Restore
Software used for creating websites can be just strict HTML or “content management system” software like WordPress. The advantage of using WordPress is the thousands of themes and plugins created that are free to use. The time to create a website is extremely fast when using WordPress as opposed to strict HTML. The other advantage of a WordPress is keeping your site up to date is very easy.
