Plugins are a very handy way of extending the features of your e107 website.

What does this mean?

We all agree that e107 does a fantastic job of managing most of the work needed to maintain a great website. However, there are occasions when there is a need for special features which may not be useful for e107 website. To help with that, the e107 developers have provided a way of integrating other features into the e107 website system. We called these extras "Plugin".

There are a number of plugins which are part of the core installation and some are built by members of the community.

Take Note!

  • Follow the specific instructions provided with each individual Plugin.
  • Non-Core-Plugins are just that, they mostly are written by other developers, so they are not for the core e107 team to support or extend - whilst we do try to help where possible.
  • Some Community Plugins may be experimental or incomplete - but it will usually say that in the read-me/instructions.
  • It is good practice to install any new Plugin (any new software for that matter) on a test copy of your production system first and you should thoroughly test it.
