Affecting Your
Website Performance
Plugins are very useful assets that extend the
functionalities of your WordPress website. All
you need to do is go to the WordPress repository,
search the plugin that you need, hit the install
button and then activate. Its that simple to
use WordPress plugins on your website and
leverage its functionality. But do you know that
plugins also have a negative effect on your
website performance?

If the plugin comes from an accomplished and
trusted Wordpress d eveloper, chances are low
that they will break your website. But if it
isnt, your website may run into serious issues
that will affect your bottom line. For example,
some plugins may show up errors when you update
your WordPress website or some plugins may not
work well with the customized source code of
your website. This could create unnecessary
problems and your users might see errors or
broken pages on your website. However there are
certain things you can do to prevent your website
from falling victim to a faulty plugin. For
instance, check the number of users who are
using a particular plugin before you install it
on your website. Also check when that plugin was
last updated and how many issues have been
reported about that plugin. Just remember, if a
plugin is being used by a large number of people
and is updated on regular intervals, chances are
high it is a good and bug-free plugin. However,
still there are chances that the chosen plugin
may break your website. To prevent it from
happening you can keep checking the status of
your plugins and regularly update your WordPress
website. In this blog, Ill share 6 best
practices to prevent WordPress plugins from
affecting your WordPress website. But before you

event WordPress Plugins from Slowing Down Your
Website

  • Install Plugins From Trusted Sources Only
  • Plugins can be installed from various sources but
    we suggest installing it from reliable sources
    only. WordPress repository is a great example of
    this and you must check it out when you need any
    plugin for your site. In addition to that, you
    need to check the number of active users of that
    plugin and its last updated date. This will give
    you an idea of the quality of the plugin that
    matters for the smooth running of your website.
  • Also dont forget to go through the reviews of
    the plugin to know whether any user has reported
    any problem in the plugin or it is running fine.
    Always remember that a plugin with a large
    number of active users and recent update date is
    safe to install on your WordPress website. It
    shows that the plugin is being nicely maintained
    by its developer and has least chances of
    creating any problem.
  • Use Limited Number of Plugins On Your Site
  • You might not know but using more plugins on your
    website could make it sluggish. First off, too
    many plugins consume a lot of space on your
    website and also use high server resources. Thus
    they could affect your websites functionality
    and it won't be able to perform well on the
    online platform.
  • Also, plugins with poorly written codes may not
    be compatible with the source code of your
    WordPress installation or other components of
    your website. This can cause problems in your
    website functioning and could affect the user
    experience. Simply remember, the lighter a
    website, the better its functioning ability.
  • When you remove unnecessary data from your
    website, the chances of problem emergence
    reduces and thus your website runs in a
    frictionless manner.

  • In case your website has slow load time, you
    should be aware that it is costing you
    conversions. So, to speed up your website and
    boost your conversions, you can have a word with
    our Wordpress website design c ompany.
  • Use A Widely Used Theme On Your Website
  • To ensure that your plugin works smoothly on your
    website, its important to ensure that it is
    compatible with all the components of your
    website. In other words, plugins should
    seamlessly integrate into your website so that it
    doesnt create any problem in your website
    operations. To make sure that it happens, you
    need to choose a popular theme that is compatible
    with your plugins.
  • Besides this, you also need to keep in mind that
    since the technologies to develop plugins is
    constantly evolving, it is necessary to update
    your theme regularly.
  • Use A Caching Plugin
  • By using a caching plugin on your website you can
    improve the performance of our website. The main
    job of caching plugins is to turn your web pages
    into static HTML pages that can be loaded
    quickly. This will save the time of your users
    while accessing your website and you will be
    able to provide them a good user experience.
  • Bear in mind that most of the internet users
    remain in a hurry so its your accountability to
    provide them the required information as soon as
    possible. In case you need help to accelerate
    your website, you can get in touch with our Los
    Angeles web design company to avail website
    enhancement services.
  • Compress Your Website

Next, you need to compress the larger files on
your website that are making your website
heavier. By reducing the file size of your
images, videos, and other files you can improve
the speed of your website and take your users
experience to the next level. Not just that you
can also compress the CSS and Javascript files
of your website to improve the loading time of
your site. Once you have done these things, you
can expect your website to offer an awesome user
experience. 6. Take Regular Backup of Your
Website Having a backup of your website ready
for any type of mishappening is extremely
important. You dont know when your website might
get crashed or you lose half of your content. In
that case if you have a backup of your site you
can easily restore it and get it up and
running. Be mindful, you should regularly take
the backup of your website and especially before
installing any new plugin. If your website is
malfunctioning after installing a particular
plugin, you can connect with our Los Angeles web
design company to get a quick fix. Over To
You So, I have told you that if you install
plugins from a trusted developer, its less
likely that your website will show up any bugs.
This is correct but its not guaranteed that if
you follow the above advice, your website will
never crash. This is because the source code for
themes and plugins keeps getting updated
frequently and its your job to keep an eye out
for those changes and update them
accordingly. If you are not sure whether the
plugin you are considering to install is good
for your site or not, simply set up a staging
site, install the plugin and test its
compatibility.
