Activating and Deactivating WordPress Plugins

WordPress® offers a large number of plugins to add functionality to your Website. They range from anti-spam comment filters to helping you build a small-scale social network.

To Activate WordPress Plugins

  2. Click Plugins.
  3. Click Add New.
  4. Search for the plugin you want to use, and then, beneath its name, click Install Now.

How you manage and use the plugin depends on its developer. You can view all of the currently installed plugins by clicking Plugins on the menu.
