When you use a WordPress theme, you quickly learn about plugins. and no, it’s not an air freshener.
Plugins are tools that extend the functionality of WordPress. Using plugins offers custom functions and features. This gives you the opportunity to add extra features to your WordPress site for a more custom look.
For instance, most people want a way for their readers to follow them on social media. You can search through the plugin catalog for social media plugins and likely come up with a dozen or more plugin options. Once you click the “install” button, the system installs it for you and all you need to do is set it up to use it. Setting up a plugin could be as easy as drag and dropping where you want the social icons to appear and adding links to your profiles.
