This DOTW topic is inspired by the popularity of a recent post on our blog: The Slowest WordPress plugins (and Alternatives to Try Instead)
1. What essential(to you) plugins or services have you replaced due to performance issues?(or other issues - include the reason) and what plugin or service did you replace it with?
2. Are you using any essential plugins or services on your site now that are causing issues and you want to replace, but haven’t found adequate replacements for? If so, name them and include the reasons alternatives you've tried didn't work out(if applicable). Perhaps our community will know of some other alternatives :slight_smile:
I do want to quickly mention here that you should always reach out to the plugins/services support team first and see if they can resolve the issue before you decide to replace it. In many cases, issues are due to conflicts with other plugins - their support team may be able to provide a solution, but of course, that isn’t always the case as I’m sure we all have experienced first hand.
