[Well....] Streamlining Plugins

This may be an odd request, but your mission (should you choose to accept it) would be to go into our site at trekfederation.com and take a look at all of our plugins from so many different authors to see if any can be replaced by WPMUDEV plugins instead.

I'd much rather be running WPMUDEV plugins than someone else's, so if there are any third-party plugins that we have installed that could be replaced with WPMUDEV plugins, I'd like to do that. I just need to know which ones could be replaced by yours.

Thanks...just in case you take this mission.

    Hello RUSS

    Hope you're doing well!

    Would you please grant access from WPMU DEV > Support so I can have a closer look at the plugin list?

    Please see the detailed instructions on the link below:
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/docs/getting-started/getting-support/#chapter-5

    Let me know when you do! Otherwise please share here a list of the plugin you're using.

    Also, you can find all WPMU DEV plugins on this page:https://premium.wpmudev.org/projects/category/plugins/

    Please advise,

    Kind regards,
    Nastia

    Hello RUSS

    Hope you're well!

    Instead of the PopUp Pro plugin, please try Hustle, which is an upgraded version, that includes slides-in, popup, embeds and even social sharing icons:
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/hustle/

    The Hummingbird plugin can replace the WP Super Cache. It also comes with Page Caching, browser Caching and Gravatar Caching; plus it allows to upload all your assets ( CSS and JS files) to WPMU DEV CDN. Please note, we do not suggest to have both plugins have activated the same features at the same time.
    Hummingbird also comes with advanced minification option which will help improve the performance of your site

    The UpdraftPlus - Backup/Restore plugin can be replaced with Snapshot Pro backup plugin:
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/snapshot/

    The Snapshot Pro plugin can create local backup files which can be upload to destinations like Google Drive, DropBox, and Amazon, and Managed Backups, is an emergency backup/restore option, that will backup up the whole site, along with it folders and database and upload to our WPMU DEV Cloud Storage. Where these can be kept up to 30 days. The WPMU DEV Cloud Storage is expandable up to 1TB.

    The Contact 7 and the Caldera Forms plugin can be replaced with the Forminator Pro plugin:
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/forminator-pro/

    It provides not only forms, but polls and quizzes. The forms are integrated with Google Sheets, MailChimp, ActiveCampaign, Zapier, AWeber, Trello and Campaign Monitor, so all submitted information automatically transferred to these services.

    I've noticed you have no security plugin installed. Please consider trying Defender plugin:
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/wp-defender/

    It is a security plugin that will offer to add security tweaks to your site to harden it against attacks. it can detect if any WordPress files where modified and comes with IP and 404 lockouts and more:
    - 2-Factor Authentication
    - renaming wp-admin page
    - Hub Security Manager
    - Security Key Updater
    - Audit Logs
    - Blacklist Monitoring

    Hope this helps! Let us know if you will have any questions!

    Have a good day and take care!

    Cheers,
    Nastia

    I've gone ahead and installed the WPMUDEV plugins and deleting the other plugins that do the same thing. We have a small issue, though.

    Hummingbird is freezing each time we set it to do its initial scan. It is never able to complete and run. Can you log in and see what you can do to fix?

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
