FULL DISCUSSION
 

Plugins: as many as you need, but no more than necessary.

Before looking for a plugin, I ask myself:

1) How do you code it yourself?
Learn something!

2) Is it worth the time to learn a fix?
I usually put a time limit, if I'm not getting somewhere in 30 minutes with this problem, move on.

3) Will this plugin fix other problems?
I recently used a date plugin because dates are nasty to work with. Life got better.

4) Does the plugin really save time?
If you spend hours fighting with a plugin, find another solution.

5) How many moving parts does this project have, should we add more?
The more plugins you have, the more likely there is to be a conflict... with code you didn't write.
