What is a Plugin?

In a CMS ( Content Management System) a Plugin is a collection of code files that adds one or more features to your web site.
This is the basic meaning of “plugin.” It is basically software.
However,  the meaning of plugin varies, depending on the  CMS you use. eg


In WordPress, a “plugin” is the general term for “code that adds a feature to your site.”

But, be warned, some plugins when installed together will have a ‘conflict’ causing site issues.
That’s why Plugin selection and installation is best left to your web development team!
