In this article we will learn what plugins are and how to install and manage them in WordPress.

What is WordPress Plugin?

You guys can understand plugin (plug-in) in WordPress as a small “software package”, written in the PHP language, based on the WordPress source code. It contains additional features that WordPress and Theme do not have or had but not “delicious”.

Additional features of the plugin can help prevent SPAM comments, clean up “junk” on the website, support image management, optimize images, etc.

Install Plugins

The WordPress plugin store is very large, at the time of writing this article, there are many WordPress plugin stores 47.869 the one and the download is 1,475,369,868 . Too many to choose right.

However, we should only install the plugins that are really necessary, installing a lot can make the website heavy and managing those plugins is also tiring. Then here I will install a plugin sample for you to try!

  • From page Dashboard >> select Plugins >> select Add New to add a new plugin as shown below.

  • You can type in the search box a plugin by name. For example, here I want to install the Yoast SEO plugin to support writing articles, I will search with the keyword “Yoast SEO“. Then select Install Now and Activate done as above.
