How to add a plug-in to php file
Thanks much in advance!!!
Plugins are additional code that change or enhance the way wordpress does something. A plugin can add a feature like adding a like button for Facebook to your post or if can change a feature like changing the editor for posting.
To add a plugin the easiest way is to search for it on wordpress.com then when you find it's name go to your dashboard in wordpress and type the name of the plugin in the plugin search and install it from within your WordPress.
There are hundreds available already. Tell me which ones stand out. What are your all time favorite plugins for WordPress.
Plugins that i use:-
1. Akismet Plugin ( Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web serivce to see if they look like spam or not. You need a WordPress.com API key to use this service. You can review the spam it catches under "Manage" and it automatically deletes old spam after 15 days.)
2. Adhesive Plugin (To make sticky posts )
I have photoshop cs5..where do i download plugins that work? And how do i install them.
You can download plugins from a lot of sites. RedPaw Media, the Plugin Site (only those with 3 stars), Flaming Pear, etc. They've always worked for me.
Look for the freeware plugins at Redfield.
Flaming Pear: Scroll down to the freebie pack.
My favorite plugins are from Topaz Labs but they cost $$$. My favorite freebies are from Filter Forge (and from RedPaw Media above).
How plugins are installed depends on what operating system you're using. In general and using Windows Explorer, they go in Computer>C:>Program Files>Adobe>Photoshop>Plugins.
Especially when installing free plugins in the newest version of Photoshop, you've got to assume that because of coding changes in the program, not all plugins or actions are going to work. If you install a plugin that doesn't work, you just have to go back to the Plugins folder and delete it.
