4. Reerate ThumbnailsIf you often set a new size of thumbnails, whether in your theme or plugin, you may find Reerate Thumbnails useful. It allows you to reerate all the thumbnail s in the library in the new size you want, with a single click. The process, however, may take a while depending on the amount of s – especially when you run it in a live site.
s5. RTL TesterSince there are many WordPress users out there who rd and write from right-to-left (RTL), you might need to test your theme or plugin in RTL mode as well.
