WordPress Plugins I’m Using

There are three main components to an WordPress powered website. There is WordPress itself, the core of the website and its functionality. Then there is the theme, which controls the styling of your content, and is responsible for the first impression that a user makes on the site. The third component are the plugins that add extra functionality.

Below is a list of plugins that add functionality to the Elemental Fiction website.
