Antes que nada aclaro… Dije “tener en cuenta”, NO “tener instalados”. Lo digo porque varios de mis amigos (y suscriptores) son instaladores compulsivos. Ellos profesan como si fuera una religión, aplicando a los plugins de WordPress aquello de que “todo bicho que camina va a parar a la cocina”

Asi que vamos a revisar una lista, que querrás tener a mano, ya que iré incluyendo tutoriales de cada uno de estos plugins en mi Curso de Expertos en WordPress.

Por favor, no olvides dejarme tus comentarios al final de la página. Y ya sabes… Si te gusta lo que ves, compartelo!
