In the previous month I’ve talked to countless people about WordPress. One question keeps coming back over and over again: How many plugins can I install without facing negative affects? There’s only one answer to that question: It depends on the plugins.
I’ve seen slow sites with 5 plugins and I’ve seen rocket fast sites with 30+ plugins. It’s not a question of the quantity, but of the quality. So, where does the myth come from that too many plugins are bad for your site?
