Recommendations

Here are a few of my favorite things

I'm regularly asked which plugins or themes to use with WordPress or WooCommerce. I've created this list of my favorite things to make it easy for you to get these recommendations quickly and easily. Nothing goes on this page without me owning my own personal license. I use these and recommend them regularly.

Notice: some of these links are affiliate links which means if you click and buy something, I get a small commission.
