Allowing plugins (5 posts)

    For some reason I can never find the simple stuff on the support codex...Here is my deal, I just need to know how to call for, or allow, plug ins to be used on my wordpress site. I have a functions.php file, so I was hoping it would be as easy as adding the call to use pictures. Would someone mind giving me a hand, this is the last thing I need before I can get my site up :-)

    You do not have to do anything to be able to download and install plugins on a self-hosted WordPress site.

    Hi Esmi,

    I don't have any problems with the download and install part of the plug ins, I have available right now. My issue is that I moved from using a theme for my WP site, to building and using my own theme. I wanted full control because I know how to create a site, but I still don't know that much about wordpress. Is there a php call similar to the call to use thumbnails that I can place in my loop to call and use plug ins. It seems like I have to do a php call for almost everything on WP (images, css etc...)

    There is no generic function to call a given plugin. You would need to check the code of each plugin so see if, and how, you can call it via a template file.

    Thanks Esmi, that makes sense.
