I've had some issues with my sites being hacked and as a result have installed all these plugins:
I also have some specific-use plugins like Login LockDown installed.
My question isn't so much if these plugins will play well together, but if they're redundant. My WordPress sites are bogged down by too many plugins running, and I'd like to work toward minimizing how many I need. Do all three of the above need to be running concurrently? Some of them appear to have functions that make permanent changes (such as creating
index.php files where needed); can those plugins be disabled after this initial setup?
