I suppose I try to limit the number of the plugins i install on any website because if you load up your site with too many plugins it can cause the site to load slower or occasionally you may run into conflicts. I have a core set of plugins that i use alot…maybe 5 or so. ACF Pro, Reveal Template, Yoost SEO Plugin, and a couple others.
if i can avoid installing a plugin, i will. I don’t like wondering if when i update the plugin if its going to break my website.
But, since you talked to the developer of the plugin you are using and are happy with that route, that should work just fine for you. Good luck!
