A plugin is a software component that’s like an app. It provides you with additional features and functionality you don’t usually have without it. With WordPress, there are many different plugins you can install that help you do specific things, like add a contact form or photo gallery to your site. 

Here’s how to install a WordPress plugin:

  1. Go to the WordPress Admin area and click Plugins, then Add New.
  2. In the search bar, enter the name of the plugin if you know it, or type in specific keywords for functionality. 
  3. Review the search results to find the plugin you want.
  4. Make sure the plugin is compatible with your version of WordPress.
  5. Click the Install button located next to the plugin.
  6. Once installed by WordPress, you have to click Activate to enable the plugin.
