Recommended plugins

If you went through the theme setup wizard, recommended plugins would be already installed and activated. However, here is an alternative way to install the plugins and a basic usage description.

Trawell plugins are not required but we warmly recommend to use them if you want to make the most of the theme features.

All the plugins are hosted on the official WordPress repository, which means they are 100% free and you can use it in any other theme as well. You can go to Appearance -> Trawell Plugins to install and activate recommended plugins with a single click.

Watch the process in this short video:
