Hey Gentlemen.
My sister has asked me to build her a website as im the tech savy one in our family, but havent built a site before myself. Just working my way through a word press tutorial, and needed a pro plugin, which has brought me here :)

Hope this place can be trusted not to have viruses?

You should always check that yourself. The Downloads are provided by users so there is always a risk. I personally trust Shadows uploads the most.

But always check it with

Hello, AltCtlDel, welcome to the community. I would suggest Elementor if you need a plugin to start with. They have a free version that is pretty powerful. Also install a free security plugin like wordfence. There are plenty of tutorials on youtube for both. Have a great week and stay safe!

Thanks for the welcome lads :)

Yeah good tip popping on wordfence before adding the plugin. Though i dont think i'll keep word fence installed permanently, slows down site a bit doesnt it?
My host has hardware firewalls, so no sure WF is necessary from a firewall perspective.
