    Hi Ray, good video! I’m looking for a plugin that when I put the mouse on the product (without doing click), I can see the description of the product. Looking forward for your answer!

    Awesome list! We just made a video highlighting essential WordPress business plugins and have many of the same plugins! We also agree that it is important to keep the number of plugins that you have installed limited. 2 other suggestions are a caching plugin and security plugin. Great video!
