    Download the plugin and review the source code. Really that's all that there is to it. If you're using a plugin from the official repository on this site you're pretty much assured that it's OK because these are checked before being added.

    @Catacaustic Thank you man, But once upon a time I have downloaded from wordpress.org and added to the one of my Results website( whatismyresults )website but it was containing the shell and my website was hacked. So now I have moved the complete website to blogger platform.

    So, WHY was it hacked? HOW did the hack happen? What code was it that let the hack take place?

    If you have found a problem with a plugin that's hosted on wordpress.org then you should report it. To be honest, when you say "containing the shell", that doesn't make a lot of sense, and I know that a lot of people would like to find out just what you are talking about so that it can be fixed.

    You can export content from WP -


    For the rest, you'll have to ask Blogger - we only support WordPress here.

    This is also an old thread on an unrelated topic - so start a new thread if you have other questions.
