Recently I wrote an article about Accessibility For Everyone. I mentioned that one important step is to listen to your site and strongly consider removing plugins that make your site inaccessible. This is one of many reasons you don’t need that plugin. I was raised in the military so we moved every 2-4 years. Part of moving in the military is a weight limit on the items you bring.
