Plugins extend the functionality of your basic WordPress site and give it a few more bells and whistles. Plugins can be activated and deactivated as needed on your site. For ease of use, we recommend activating only the plugins you need. You can manage plugins under the Plugins tab on the dashboard.
You are unable to install plugins other than those provided, and but we do consider requests for additional plugins. If there is functionality you believe would benefit WordPress for the Dartmouth community, please contact us. We will consider feedback for future updates, but please note that there is no guarantee that suggestions will be implemented.
We are updating the list of available plugins. The following plugins are available for your site:
- Meta Slider: Create responsive photo and video sliders that can appear on any page or post. (instructions)
- Social Media Widget: Adds links to all of your social media and sharing site profiles, such as Twitter, Facebook, etc. Icons come in 3 sizes, 4 icon styles, and 4 animations. Displays as a sidebar widget. (instructions)
- The Events Calendar: The Events Calendar is a fully featured event management system with multiple views, 3rd party integrations, and a slew of premium add-ons. This is not the Dartmouth Events Calendar. (instructions)
