Welcome to Torque’s Plugin Madness 2023! The bracket-style competition where we pit 64 plugins against each other to find the best of the best. There are thousands of plugins to choose from, and we are on a mission to find the very best ones. The hidden gems that make life easier, that make sites cooler, and improve functionality.
WordPress would not be what it is without the incredible work of these plugin developers and we want your help thanking them.
In order to find the top 64 plugins, we need the experts, the community, to nominate your favorites. Is there a plugin that you can’t live without or one that solved a tricky problem in a few clicks? We want to hear about it!
Nominations will be open from February 6- February 15.

Past Plugin Madness Winners
Plugin Madness has been running for eight years and in that time, amazing winners have been crowned. Last year, first-time competitor The Plus Addons for Elementor had a slam dunk and brought home the prize.
Of course, we couldn’t talk about Plugin Madness without shouting out the very first winner, Advanced Custom Fields. ACF took the crown all the way back in 2016 and has made an appearance on the bracket every year since.
We cannot wait to see who fights their way to the top this year! Voting begins on Feb. 27, 2023, and the winner will be announced April 10, 2023. Coming back to vote every week is important but we can’t show the love unless you send in a nomination.
