What is a WordPress Plugin 

WordPress plugins are pre-written pieces of code that developers in the WordPress community create to “plug in” to your WordPress site. Plugins are something that can expand the capabilities of the already-existing features on your site.  

Imagine the WordPress core software as a new smartphone with the manufacturer’s default settings, and plugins as additional apps that you add to it. A smartphone is perfectly functional out of the box, but most users add more apps to improve their device’s usability and overall functionality. You can download, install and uninstall these applications whenever you want.  

Plugins for WordPress function similarly.  

WordPress is capable of powering a wide range of websites, including small personal blogs, professional portfolios, websites of large corporations and eCommerce shops. With the help of plugins, WordPress websites can have their functionality expanded while also being completely unique.  

Tip: WordPress plugins support self-hosted websites, also known as WordPress.org. While hosted versions like WordPress.com typically provide options for themes to customise websites, it is not possible to install plugins without restriction on these platforms.  To learn more, you can read our guide here.

What can plugins do 

With the help of plugins, it’s simple to transform a simple WordPress website into a fully functioning blog, online storefront, membership site, or website that can handle the intricate business requirements of a large corporation. Plugins can add necessary features for any WordPress site as well as features for particular requirements.  

Plugins can enhance your WordPress site by improving user experience with navigation, comments, subscriptions and security. They can also speed up loading time, optimise searchability, schedule posts, manage social media sharing and email lists, and improve site appearance with designer fonts, galleries, and media players. Some plugins are necessary for theme performance and to achieve site goals, including eCommerce features like product pages and shopping carts, landing pages, paywalls and other essential functions.
