The WordPress UI is one of the best CMS’s on the market and continues to improve with every version. That being said there are a few features that seem to be missing which could make your experience a whole lot better and I am going to show you a few plugins to fill that void!
Media File Sizes
The Media Library leaves a lot to be desired, with Media File Sizes we can add a new column showing the file size of your media. Allowing you to sort by size and identify any media that might be taking up a bit to much space on your site and possibly causing slow load times.
Enable Media Replace
Sometimes you upload an image and realize it needs to be replaced, maybe you’ve already posted it in a few places on your site. By default, WordPress doesn’t give you a way to swap it out with Enable Media Replace you can replace your media sitewide! (Note: I have experienced some weirdness when used in conjunction with Jetpack’s Photon)

I find Duplicate Post particularly useful when dealing with posts that have a large amount of custom fields or sites using page builders. You find yourself creating a bunch of pages with similar layouts or content and instead of having to copy and paste or dragging and dropping over and over again you just want to make a duplicate and change the content our a bit. Duplicate Post solves this!
I often find I don’t want my page headline to be what the title of the page is. There are a few ways to solve this, but I’ve found the least involved process is to disable the title and add my own H1 heading in the editor and with Disable Title you can do that!
