  • yoast seo ' s free version is the best tool for writing page meta
  • redirect combines well with yoast seo's free version to deal with 404 and redirections
  • Elementor is currently the best free visual editor. I used visual composer for 10 years and switched to Elementor when it was published. They have done a great job improving performance which is often a big drawback of advanced editors. While Gutenberg, the now standard advanced editor for wordpress, has been around for years, I have not yet investigated its power. But sure, in 2024 I will have more experience on that guy as my new blog is built on top of that. Mainly because it is really easy to write on that one.
  • Advanced Custom Fields is the perfect extension to start with data management on wordpress posts via custom fields. Custom Fields is a default feature of wordpress that is greatly extended with ACF
  • Micro Kid’s related post , and old and not updated plugin, lets you select the post you want to relate, works for blogs with a lot of articles via ajax based search and displays related posts. Its very efficient and I still use it in 2023 !!
