This is one of those rare exceptional plugins in the WordPress ecosystem. It is very promising and they have a generous number of features in the free version. I love the intuitive interface and the easy way to enable/disable the modules. It is installed on every single website I manage.

I’m typically not one for plugins that try to do too much. I much prefer plugins that try to do what they do, and do it very well. However, most of those plugins end up evolving (devolving) into feeble attempts at becoming swiss army knives that get more and more bloated as they grow. That being said, if a plugin came along and said “I’m going to do a number of different things very well, without the bloat” I would be foolish to pass it by. It turns out that such a plugin came along – WP Extended – AND it does a number of things very well without the bloat, AND it comes with a responsive development team who regularly seek out user feedback to incorporate. Bought the Pro version immediately without hesitation, even though the free version has all the functionality I want, and am eagerly awaiting more from the development team as their toolkit grows. I have a feeling this is going to be one to watch in the essential WP plugin space.
