But don’t be so happy, installing numbers of them to your page. The sad truth is plugins slow down your website, and the more plugins you install, the slower your site will work. Also, plugins can come into collision and stop working together. When you download plugins, made by different vendors, they don’t always collaborate with each other and you might lose functionality instead of obtaining it. That’s why sometimes you need to spend time and money on customization tuning each plugin in order to fit your website.

If the chosen theme contains too many functions, that you will not use, be prepared to get the extremely slow website.
