Several popular blogging plugins have become obsolete with the launch of Gutenberg. Most recommendations are now outdated. That's why we've decided to come forward with a fresh list of the best WordPress blog plugins that provide simple and efficient functionality. As a bonus, we've included the cornerstone plugins to help you manage SEO and improve your social exposure.
This little plugin allows your contributors with a new WordPress role, Revisor, to submit revisions for existing posts and pages. A revision can be submitted for both self-published content and posts by other authors.
The head Editor can then approve these revisions and publish them immediately or schedule an update for later.
Revisionary works with Gutenberg and the Classic Editor and supports custom post types.
TablePress allows you to create custom tables and doesn’t require any coding. The plugin gives you a shortcode to insert into your posts or pages.
You can import and export tables, include formulas that will be evaluated, sorting, pagination, search feature, and more.
The plugin is free to use, tested with the newest WordPress version and has over 800,000 active installations.
We have already published our list of essential WordPress plugins for every website and that’s where you’ll find their detailed descriptions, including plugins listed below.
Yoast SEO is our plugin of choice for grading the SEO of your posts and pages, as well as giving insight on the readability of your content, and more.

AddToAny Share Buttons is a highly customisable social sharing tool. The plugin includes both official and custom buttons that allow your visitors to like and share your content, follow your social media accounts, and more.
