Recommended Plugins

The theme will work just fine without our list of recommended plugins. But, if you would like to extend Dulce’s functionality, as we have in the demo, you will want to download and install them. Each plugin has been hand chosen and vetted for compatibility and stability and, though we cannot guarantee someone else’s work, we firmly stand behind these recommendations:

  • Cleaner Gallery by Justin Tadlock
  • Contact Form 7 by Takayuki Miyoshi
  • Codestyling Localization by Heiko Rabe (if you need to translate the theme)
