They are often used to add new functionality or enhance functionality to existing WordPress sites. WordPress plugins can be integrated seamlessly into WordPress because they are entirely written in PHP. It does not matter what your technical knowledge is, you can install a WordPress plugin. Many plugins also have ‘learn more’ tools to show you how to use them.
