I would like to know if there is any article or a guide with the instructions and precautions to take if we use several plugins on a WordPress installation
There were several articles which warn us to use 'as less plugins as' necessary. There are many articles which suggest 7 plugins is the best and 10 plugins are more. But I can't just adjust with that.
The experts like @Andrea_r says there is no magic number for plugins and we can use any number of plugins if we really need them. I agree with her . She also suggests that the plugins should be well coded and WP installation should use a good web host
But every one believe that Magic Number. MultiSite and BuddyPress installation may need several plugins. There is no meaning in believing 7 or 10 magic number in that kind of installation type.
I would like to hear others experiences and suggestions in this matter. Users who use Multisite are greatly appreciated
