Plugins are PHP scripts that extend the functionality of WordPress. For example, PHP scripts can enable you to perform plagiarism checks, optimize SEO, and format text. Elementor itself is a WordPress plugin (one of the most popular). No matter what you want to do in WordPress, you’ll be sure to find a plugin to cater to your needs.
So, where can you find plugins? Let’s go over that.
You can browse and install plugins in the official WordPress plugin directory.
