What Is A WordPress Plugin

Hi you! 🙂

In this article, I talk about the modules that extend the functionality of the WordPress platform and allow you to add advanced features to your blog : WordPress Plugins

What is a WordPress plugin?

A WordPress plugin is an application that allows you to add tools and features to your blog on the WordPress platform . There are over 50,000 plugins available in the library for you to use that allow you to customize your blog


Plugins allow you to extend the functionality of your blog and make it more advanced, making it easier for you to customize your blog since they do not require computer skills to be used.

WordPress was built in a way that would allow third party developers to implement their code in native WordPress code

How To Install A WordPress Plugin

Installation is very simple, you can install a new plugin by selecting ” plugin ” in your blog dashboard and then select “add new” (on the left side of your blog dashboard)

Below you will find a page with a set of plugins . On this page you can search for specific plugins thanks to the search bar or load one directly from your computer in .ZIP format (thanks to the “load plugin ” button)

once you have selected your plugin you just have to click “install now” and you are ready to install your new plugin

another procedure you need to know is to uninstall your plugins

Always remember to uninstall plugins you don’t use as they can cause your blog to slow down

find all the plugins in the ” plugin ” section of your dashboard and if you want to uninstall them you will find the “uninstall” button under each of them
