What are plugins?

Plugins are pieces of code that help make WordPress work better. They allow you to add features to your website, customize it, or make it more efficient.

To install a plugin, first go to the Plugins page on your WordPress admin panel. You can find this page by going towordpress.org and searching for “Plugins.”

Once you’re on the Plugins page, you’ll see a list of all the plugins that are installed on your website. To install a plugin, click on the button next to it and then follow the instructions that appear.

If you want to learn more about how plugins work, you can visit the WordPress Plugin Directory. This website has detailed information about every plugin that is available on WordPress.

How to install plugins manually

WordPress is a popular content management system (CMS) that allows you to create a website or blog. It is easy to install and use, and there are many plugins available to help you customize your site.

To install a plugin manually, first find the plugin you want to install on the WordPress Plugin Directory. Once you have found the plugin, click on the “Download” button next to it. This will open the plugin file in your browser. You will then need to save the file to your computer.

Once you have saved the file, you will need to extract the files from it. To do this, open a command prompt window and type:

unzip filename.zip

This will open a folder called “filename” on your computer containing the files from the plugin. You now need to copy these files to your WordPress directory. To do this, type:

cp filename/* wp-content/plugins/

You can now activate the plugin by entering its name into the “Add New” screen in WordPress and clicking on “Activate”.


WordPress is a great platform for blog owners and website builders, but sometimes plugins need to be manually installed. In this article, we will show you how to do this on both a WordPress site using the built-in editor and on an external server using a plugin installation manager.
