  1. don’t a lot of these plugins overlap. For instance, I use Swift Performance for caching and it has many of the autoptimise? I optimize my images in advance…how would WPCompress help?

    1. Hey Michael, thanks for the comment and question.

      The main takeaway from the video is that these are my preference and recommendations.

      If you’re finding Swift is working well, stick with it. A tool like WP Compress is very useful for not only compressing your images but also generating WebP versions and optimising the additional files that WP generates when an image is uploaded.

      Optimising your images before uploading is good practice (as pointed out during the video), but it won’t help with the files WP creates for every image upload.

      Do you need a tool like WP Compress? No. But it does have benefits if you need them.

      I hope that helps? 😁

  2. Hey Paul, great video! Do you have any solution to cover custom login, register, password recovery forms in elementor?

  3. Thanks Paul. Awesome as usual. You got me going building my own website from scratch using your video tuts. Love it.

    1. @WPTuts  Thank you so much for the fast reply, really appreciate it. I was looking at Termageddon service and now i will look into this other one 👍

  5. Once you become aware of him saying “go ahead and” & “I’ve gone ahead and”, it becomes really annoying.

  6. Hello and thank you for the video. Any chance you do a video detailing which Plugins or types of Plugins are now longer needed in 2022 since WordPress itself has evolved and includes features that were only available via a Plugin? our site was designed in 2015 and has had incremental plugins added and remove since, but I often wonder if we can remove some of the Plugins to speed up and secure the site (Blog and Woocommerce store) better. It would be helpful if Worpress upgrades came with details on which plugins features they’ve incorporated into the program so you no longer need to add the plugin.
