I get asked occasionally what the best plugins are (other than Church Admin of course).

Here’s some of my favourites…

Antispam Bee is a free replacement for Akismet to stop spam on your site. I’ve been using it for years and it works well!

I use the free version and have never been hacked yet! (i’ve dealt with lots of sites that have and always add Sucuri afterwards!)
