My Optional Modules

A bundle of optional WordPress modules to enhance functionality.

My Optional Modules (or MOM) is a bundle of optional modules for WordPress which give extra functionality not currently available in a fresh installation. They are designed to be lightweight and easilly implemented by even the most novice of WordPress users.

No Unnecessary Load

MOM only loads what you want it to load - so no matter how many modules come packaged, the only ones that get loaded are the ones that you ask for.

Standing on the shoulders of geniuses
