Competition was fierce until the very end, but a winner has emerged in this year’s Plugin Madness tournament sponsored by Torque Magazine. The voters have spoken, and The Plus Addons for Elementor is the top WordPress plugin identified by Torque readers for 2022! 

The Plus Addons for Elementor allows you to supercharge Elementor like never before with additional features for the popular page builder including expanded page-building functionality and a WooCommerce store builder. It also has a one-click unused widget scanner, allowing you to identify and disable unused widgets quickly.

The Plus Addons for Elementor edged out Health Check in the final round of Plugin Madness voting. Health Check is a plugin that scans your WordPress installation to detect common configuration errors and known issues, and also allows plugins and themes to add their own checks.

Now in its seventh year, Plugin Madness is a bracket-style competition in which Torque readers’ favorite plugins go head-to-head in weekly competitions until a final winner is crowned. It begins with 64 of the top plugins identified by Torque readers, broken into four major categories: Optimization, Maintenance, eCommerce, and Marketing. From there, readers cast their votes until a winner emerges.

“Plugin Madness is such a fun way to show our love for one of the most important parts of WordPress—the incredible ecosystem of plugins and the developers and designers who make them available to the WordPress community,” said Emily Schiola, editor of Torque Magazine. 

“Every year is a great opportunity to support established plugins that the community has relied on for a long time, as well as elevate new plugins that are providing users with a ton of value.”

Every plugin included in the competition is available for free in the WordPress plugin repository, and this year’s entrants include plugins that help site builders with everything from site security and speed to content translations and media compression. 

Voting began on March 7 and with voting in the final round now wrapped up, The Plus Addons for Elementor joins an illustrious list of previous Plugin Madness winners including Elementor, FluentCRM, and Smush image optimizer
