WordPress Plugins are PHP scripts that extend the functionality of WordPress. They enhance the features of WordPress or add entirely new features to your site. Plugins are often developed by volunteers and are usually free to the public. Plugins are available via the WordPress Plugin Directory. All you want is just go to WordPress dashboard –> Plugins –> Add New –> search plugins from “Search Plugins” Searchbar click install then Activate the plugin
