15 Free And Useful Google Chrome Extensions For WordPress

Browser extensions can improve our browsing efficiency. With the right kind of extensions, you can boost productivity or automate certain repetitive tasks in some way. Right now Chrome has more than 70% browser market share that means more people use Chrome. Good thing is that there are several chrome extensions for WordPress to make your blogging easier.

It would certainly be an overkill to do everything the same way for years when browser extension can certainly make it more convenient for us. Surely there are more popular browser extensions for Chrome but this list is focused mainly on WordPress.


1. WordPress Plugin Search


You can search plugins by relevance, ratings, update and installs. Install plugins in a 60-minutes sandbox for free with registration, comes with 6 languages. Although I’m not sure about why there’s a codecanyon link and it’s confusing.  As stated in the app description –

This extension replaces the default search for plugins on WordPress.org with the search engine from Addendio.com. It also provides additional information about the plugin you are viewing, including related items and whether the plugin has a freemium model. Through the “TRY NOW” button you can also immediately test drive any plugin in the WordPress repository on a FREE sandbox.

You can filter your plugin search by less than 1,000, 1,000 – 10,000 and more than 10,000. Last update with less than 6 months, 6-12 months, 1-2 years and more than 2 years filter. Pricing model filters are Free, Freemium and Paid. On the individual plugin page, you can see all the plugins the same author has created (If any).


2. WP Content Discovery

Discover content on WordPress sites, using the WordPress REST API. This extension uses the WordPress REST API that was introduced in WordPress 4.7 to fetch almost all posts and pages on almost any site with WordPress 4.7 or above – even pages that are not linked from menus or posts. Pretty useful for developers that wanna check that the websites they build do not leak any private or sensitive information.


3. WordPress Stats


A real-time WordPress visit counter, You can check easily who visits your WordPress.com blog.


4. Version Checker For WordPress


Check what version of WordPress a web page is powered by. Version Check for WordPress determines if web pages are powered by WordPress, what version they are running, and indicates if the version in use is outdated.


5. Wpsniffer

6. WordPress Plugin SVN


As simple as it gets, On WordPress plugins pages show a button linking to the plugin’s SVN repository under the .zip file download button. Note – SVN repository can be directly accessed from the plugin page without any additional extension. 4/5 years ago this extension would have been useful but not now.


7.WordPress Keyboard Shortcuts


Gives a complete list of keyboard shortcuts for WordPress. Keyboard shortcut includes Visual Editor shortcuts, Comment moderation shortcuts, and Advance shortcuts.


8. Scan WP Detect WordPress


After you install the extension, an orange WordPress logo will be added to your browser. Clicking on that button will show whether the site was built with WordPress and just press that logo. Within a few seconds, you will know everything there is to know about the theme and plugins.


9. WordPress Checker


Checks for one or more WordPress blogs for unapproved and spam comments. Although the extension hasn’t been updated for a long time, might not work in most cases.


10. WordPress Admin Switcher


This extension is great for power users who want to skip the manual steps of always having to type “wp-admin” into the address bar to log in to a WordPress site, or always having to reach for their mouse/trackpad and click a link in the WP admin bar in order to switch to/from the admin; those processes are replaced with a single keyboard shortcut instead.


11. WordPress Admin Bar Controller


If you have a love/hate relationship with the “Admin Bar” of WordPress with this extension you can hide it. It can be handy when jumping between the front and backend of a site or when writing content but it can also get in the way when doing design or trying to build the aesthetics of a site.


12. WordPress Site Manager


If you manage more than one site this is a plugin you should check out. It stores your WordPress site information and allows quick and easy access to your site’s main pages, Also provides more functionality to the WordPress theme editor by turning it into a CodeMirror editor.


13. WordPress Style Editor


If you’re doing too much style changes on your live site it can get pretty boring, changing the styles in the inspector and then adding it later into the stylesheet. But with this extension, you can save CSS changes made in developer tools, directly to the WordPress stylesheet.



14. WordPress Theme and Plugin Detector



Detects the theme and plugins used in WordPress and display information about them. Plugins detection is done on a remote server and then sends the result to your browser.


15. WordPress Switch

It helps you to switch between different WordPress blogs, easily.


Final Thoughts
