The Plug-ins are all kinds of extra features you can add to your site.
Some of the Plug-ins come already installed for you, like the Business Directory, Coupons and Classifieds. Others we leave uninstalled, as these are optional and you may not wish to manage them (things like the Calendar, Jobs Directory, Photo Polls), installing them will be your responsibility.
To access the Plug-ins, you will need to login to your Control Panel using your administration username and password. Click on the icon that is circled in this image (Plug-ins).
Once you have clicked the icon, you will see a menu similar to the one below...

Each plug-in is explained in their own chapter's of this Training Guide.
Look them over before installing a new plug-in. However, they are easily removed.
Note: If you have previously installed a plug-in, and then removed it, you can still install it again. Upon the second installation, you may get a warning message exclaiming that the 'table' for this particular plug-in already exists. This is ok. Your plug-in will have still be installed successfully.
Setting Up Your Plug-in

Editor icon in your Admin Control Panel, you will need to
click the text link for a New Page. In this example, we are going

inserted the page name. This title is also what will be displayed in
your navigation menus. In the Link title I have entered Contest.

decide where you wish the link to display. And finally, since this is a Plug-in,
change the Page type from HTML, to Plug-in. Click the Create
Page button to continue.
Please do NOT use any HTML in this area!
|To complete the activation of your new Plug-in,
you will need to change the Status from Hidden to Active.

default 'Business Directory' to the 'Photo Polls',
or whichever Plug-in you are actually installing.
See left example of changes.
Finally select Update Page.
