The roots of Really Simple Plugins :)

Really Simple Plugins creates plugins for WordPress, with a focus on ease of use. Our most used plugin is Really Simple SSL, now used on over 1 million websites.

With our small team of three we build cool plugins that will make life easier.

We like to build add-ons for our favourite plugins, like Easy Digital Downloads, Ultimate Member, and WP Job Manager. Starting with two add-ons for Ultimate Member, we’ve created the UM tagging, EDD Moneybird, Guest Post Publisher (free) and UM New Members (free), and are continually extending the number of add-ons.

Recently we have added Complianz GDPR (free, but there’s a premium version as well) to our family of plugins, which has reached 700 active installs in only three months, which is pretty fast. We’re expecting to hit 1000 before the end of november.


Rogier Lankhorst, WordPress developer in Groningen, the Netherlands.

I love the WordPress community and mindset. That’s why I dedicate all my time to creating fun WordPress projects (community websites) and plugins.

My name is Willem van der Veen and I’m a web developer since 2014. After I graduated in Biomedical sciences at the university of Groningen, I decided to switch to web development which is my passion ever since. Although my main expertise is Javascript, I also have experience in programming with php and various other programming languages.
