Plugins are tools that extend and expand the functionality of WordPress. WordPress allows you to automatically install plugins from WordPress Plugin Directory using the Admin Panel Search Option or by uploading a plugin in ".zip format". In this article we will guide you on how to install new plugins in WordPress. Please note that only user with administrator privilege can install new plugins in WordPress.
This is by far the easiest way of installing a WordPress plugin. However, please note that you can only install plugins that are available in the WordPress plugin directory. Only free plugins that follow GPL and all WordPress guidelines are available in this directory.
If the plugin you want to install is not in the WordPress Plugin directory for some reason either because it is a paid plugin, or a non-GPL plugin, then this option is the choice for beginners.
