10 most downloaded WordPress modules


The WordPress repository currently stores more than 23,500 freely available modules, and there are ten record holders at the imaginary top of the charts that we would like to introduce today. However, are the most frequently downloaded modules also at the top of their category and is their position in the top ten deserved? The following post may help you find the answer to this difficult question.

10. WordPress Importer

The first ten opens the module that you will use when exporting an existing WordPress installation: WordPress Importer will pack all the posts, pages, comments, custom fields, categories and tags into one file.

9. WPtouch

A simple, powerful and elegant mobile theme for your website, so it is possible to characterize the module, which is also used on wp.sk by the way. Do visitors view your WordPress presentation or blog via mobile devices? WPtouch automatically translates the content of the site into a very user-friendly mobile form and is definitely worth testing.

8. Google Analytics for WordPress

Monitoring website statistics is an important part of the life of the vast majority of websites, and Google Analytics for WordPress offers a comprehensive way to include GA in websites. Easy installation, asynchronous tracking, choice of tracking code location, overview of external links, downloads, logins or registrations and other functions are included in the module in eighth place.

7. Jetpack

The package of useful cloud services provided in the WordPress.com network is the seventh most frequently downloaded module, a more detailed description of the Jetpack module was published some time ago in this post .

6. WP Super Cache

The module that converts the dynamic content of a WordPress presentation or blog into static HTML files is especially suitable for websites with high traffic. WP Super Cache will help significantly reduce server load and speed up page loading.

5. NextGEN Gallery

The most popular module for complete photo gallery management is a great tool with a number of functions from mandatory photo uploading, including Zip file support, through gallery and album management, to a number of additional “features”.

4. Google XML Sitemaps

An efficient Sitemap generator can already provide a very decent service. Combined with other setup options, it is an almost perfect tool and should definitely not escape your attention.

3. Contact Form 7

“Just another” contact form, but jednoduch Its simplicity, in contrast to its flexibility, reusability, support for sending an AJAX-based form, or security features, catapulted it to a bronze bar.

2. All in One Seo Pack

The claim that the All in One Seo Pack is the most usable tool in its category confirms the second position in the number of downloads. Search engine optimization, generally considered to be a great alchemy, is manageable for beginners thanks to this module, but it can also make life much easier for an experienced user.

1. Akismet

Spam in the comments is to some extent a tax on success. The more traffic your blog receives, the more likely it is to be filled with fake comments and backlinks. The solution is Akismet, a module distributed thanks to developers from Automattic, and the fact that their intention was successful is evidenced by almost 14 million downloads from the WordPress depository.

At the end of this list is the famous statement of J. Cimrman: we can discuss it, we can have disputes about it, we can disagree with it, but that is all that can be done against it. However, it is good that there are almost always more ways to deal with specific situations in WordPress. Did you find a more useful alternative to the above mentioned modules?
