For those who have used WordPress, it is impossible not to know the concept of plug-ins. Open web platforms always give you a lot of opportunities to be able to set up different features, helping to increase the efficiency of running your business websites. January 28th every year is Thank a Plugin Developer Day, celebrated to thank the people who developed the plugin.
A plugin is a program, you can call it a piece of software written to be integrated into a WordPress website. Plugins themselves often carry one or more outstanding features to help the website display and operate better. WordPress website plugins are written in PHP language. This is one of the popular languages to support building open platforms like WordPress that we still use today. It is estimated that there are currently several thousand Plug-ins written for WordPress websites. Most plugins are free. But there are also some more "Premium" plugins that have to be paid to use. But you will feel the great advantages of these paid plugins. Thereby giving you a better experience with your own website.
As a website administrator, you can easily install a plugin from the WordPress admin interface. Or you can download the plugin and upload it directly to FTP.
Plugins are an indispensable part for you to run your website effectively. You can also install or remove plugins to not make your website heavier. Because the more you use the plugin, the more it will make your website load faster. This will cause a bad user experience and will adversely affect SEO.
The advantages that plugins bring to WordPress users can be mentioned as: time saving. Finding and installing a new plugin for your WordPress website is less than 5 minutes! Avoid mistakes. Most plugins that are built into word press are up and running right out of the box. Unlike the fact that we have to write code and then have to test it over and over again. Users can install and uninstall it at any time without having to worry about it affecting your website or not.
