Plugins provide additional optional functionality not available out-of-the-box from WordPress.
At York, WordPress websites come with certain pre-installed Plugins available for any sites to use. The following is considered before a Plugin is installed on the WordPress system:
- whether there is already a plugin in the system that does what the requested plugin does (redundancy);
- whether the plugin works with the multi-site install of WordPress used at York; and
- whether the plugin is secure and well maintained.
To see which Plugins are available:
- Log into your WordPress website
- Click on Plugins
All Plugins available will be listed there.
