Anybody use WordPress for your own website?
If you do use it is it for your entire website, or just a portion like a blog posts page? What plugins can you not live without?
I do use WordPress for my own website. In fact, several of them. It's easier for me to just use it to do the whole site rather than just a blog section. Some of my WordPress sites don't have a blog at all. WP is a pretty good overall CMS now.
The plugins I can't live without are:
Pretty link - for affiliate link tracking
Google Analytics & GA Dashboard - for usage tracking
Remote images grabber - makes porting over images from old sites easier
SPAM free WordPress - GREAT (and free) comment SPAM filter
YouTube Shortcode - a lot like HubPages' video capsule, this plugin makes embedding YouTube vids as simple as grabbing the video URL.
I use WP for my own website, and also for clients' sites so they can operate them without a techie.
My favourite plugins are:
> SiteOrigin Pagebuilder
> SiteOrigin Widgets bundle
> Meta Slider
> Ultimate Shortcodes
> WordPress Fence to secure it
All free, but Pro versions are available for some.
My favourite theme is One Press, also has a Pro plugin.
Hope this is helpful.
I ♡ WP!

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?
