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.
