• WordPress Plug-ins


WordPress Plugins allows you to modify, customize, and enhance a WordPress site easily. Instead of changing the core program code of WordPress, you can add functionality with WordPress Plugins.

If you’re new to WordPress, you might find yourself wondering, “what is a WordPress plugin?”. It’s a fairly common question to ask because, in addition to being one of the many new terms that WordPress will introduce to your vocabulary, plugins are also an essential building block of every single WordPress site. Here is a basic definition.

WordPress Plug-ins

A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites.

WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. In the WordPress community, there is a saying that goes around: “there’s a plugin for that.” They make it easier for users to add features to their website without knowing a single line of code.

There are thousands of WordPress plugins available for free at the official WordPress plugin directory. Aside from free plugins, there are tons of amazing commercial ones available from third-party companies and developers.

As a site administrator, you can install/uninstall plugins from the admin area. You can also download and manually install them using an FTP client.

Because the vast majority of plugins are free, it is essential to note that they usually do not come with tech support. For this reason, it is necessary to be careful when choosing which ones you want to install on your site.

Although there are plugins that can do the task you want them to do, some are much higher quality than others. To choose the right ones, you should ask yourself a couple of questions.

How long has it been since it was updated? Is it compatible with the latest version of WordPress? Are people getting answers to their support questions? What type of rating does it have?
