FAQ - Frequently asked questions about the topic

WordPress Plugins

  • How do I install WordPress plugins?

    Many WordPress sites already come equipped with a variety of features. While often you will be able to find a WordPress theme that serves your particular needs, sometimes additional functionality is required. Plugins give all WordPress users the freedom to quickly adapt their site to changes in their business or in the way people use the Internet - keeping your website as relevant as possible. Installing them is extremely easy, and it does not make WordPress more complicated. All you have to do is download the plugin, unzip the file, and then upload it to the WordPress plugins directory. Each plugin normally comes with its own set of instructions, so check the author's manual before. You can then activate it using the plugins tab. It is also possible to edit the PHP coding if you need to customize it. If you want to remove a plugin, then all you have to do is remove any code manually inserted and deactivate it in the plugins tab.
  • What exactly is WordPress?

    WordPress is a blogging and content management system (CMS). It is the most popular online publishing platform and offers its users the ultimate flexibility when creating a website. With literally thousands of professional, responsive designs - whether a blog, eShop or resource intensive corporate website - WordPress is sure to have a template that can be easily adapted to your needs.

    The power of WordPress lies in its user-friendly design. Users can create a professional website without ever needing to know any coding. However, if you are savvy with HTML, CSS or PHP, then WordPress is the ideal platform to test your skills. It also comes with a range of useful add-ons, such as WordPress plugins and widgets that enable users to customize and tailor websites even further, regardless of technical knowledge. Behind this is the open source WordPress community located around the world. This means that there are always new and innovative products being developed for the WordPress platform to help websites adapt quickly to industry changes. So whether you're just starting out online, or you're looking to move to the next phase of your business model, WordPress is there to help you take the next step.
