Plugins & Widgets A large part in the flexibility of WordPress is from using Plugins and Widgets ~ ~~~~~~~~~~~ Plug-ins extend the functionality of WordPress (it is something that is installed and activated on the WordPress site) ~~ ~ Widgets are placeholders or user interface elements that have data visible to the user.
  5. 5. Plugins Plug-ins can: ● Add new menus & configuration options to the Admin Dashboard (post types, spam filters, content importing) ● Add new features to the frontend of your website (social sharing tools) ● Change the way your site is displayed (mobile) ● Collect stats (analytics) ● Automate tasks (security, backup)
