Which plugins and themes are allowed?

Last Updated -


Nearly all WordPress themes are compatible. Some cache intensive themes may need modifications to work as expected.

We discourage the use of cache plugins on our platform as we handle caching via NGINX.

We also disallow a small list of plugins that can pose performance problems for our servers. 

This is mostly due to high disk and/or database usage. You can view the current list of banned plugins below.
