What Is A WordPress Plugin?
A piece of software that “plugs into” your WordPress website is known as a plugin. You may build almost any type of website, from eCommerce stores, business websites, and portfolios to blogs, using WordPress plugins, which extend or add additional capabilities to your site.
Depending on their functionality, plugins might make minor adjustments to your website or significant alterations. For instance, you might install a plugin such as WooCommerce to give your website eCommerce capabilities or simply add WhatsApp chat functionality. Or, if you operate an online store, you might add a plugin to process payments or let customers make reservations online with a calendar booking plugin.
