Core Plugins

This page will detail all the plugins that are included in the e107_plugins folder when it is uploaded… You may wish to remove these plugins before you upload them if you know you won’t use them… If you remove them you can always upload them at a later date. Please not that not all plugins have as much detail as others as I have not really used them. Please feel free to edit the page and add more detail.

Plugin Manager

To view and install all plugins that you have uploaded to your e107_plugins folder go to your plugin manager, which is found in your admin area.

Alternative Authentication

This plugin allows your site to use different methods of authenticating your vititors on sign up or login… This boosts your sites security and stops any possible malicious scripts from signing up accounts on your site.

See: Alternate Authentication plugin description

This plugin allows your members to chat on a menu that can be shown on all pages or on certain pages. The menu can be activated in the menu section found on your admin area, and visibility can be changed.

Content Management

This plugin allows you to publish and organise content, custom pages and content manager do different jobs, although the outputs can look exactly the same. With custom pages you’d struggle to manage 100 pages, and the navigation would start to takes its toll. Content Manager allows you to have thousands of pages of content, while still been able to navigate easily using the tabular menu and category system.
