    Good presentation Ben. It was an interesting evening, and it was good to get other peoples views on various plugins.

    Dear Ben,
    The idea was that if you could do a presentation around how to select a plugin, then install & update it. I am wondering if some plugin authors have purchased lots of fake reviews. - e.g. plugin has lots of 5* reviews, no 2,3,4* reviews, and quite a few 1* reviews. Perhaps also include 3rd party marketplaces like Envato. Then (I probably) was going to split everyone into groups of 4/5, each group creates a list of top 10 plugins. Then from each group, endeavour to create a top 10 master list. Hopefully anyone who rates a plugin that no-one has ever used, would be happy to spend a minute or so describing it's pros and cons.

    Hi all, as you may know I've happily volunteered / been roped in to do a little speech at the meeting about must have plugins.

    Rather than it being a entirely subjective affair I wondered if any of you might help out by suggesting some of the essential plugins that you have been using across your sites?

    It might also kick off a discussion which would lead us into nicely into the meeting itself.

    Quick question.. I'm looking for a place to manage our Wordpress site, to do updates to plugins, wordpress updates and backups. Can anyone recommend the best place or know what the average cost is likely to be? thanks!
