What Is A Plugin

A plugin is a small class which can alter the contents of some text for gadgets.

There are two types of Plugins:

  • Friendly Plugins: Any plugin that can have BBcode, for example: AlbumCover?, Emoticons, etc.
  • NonFriendly? Plugins: Those that author can't modify. Plugins that are written to help you in how the data is processed. For example: nl2br_jaws (modified version of nl2br), AntiSpammers?, etc.

A plugin can be enabled on a per-gadget basis, for example allowing the use of phoofinder in blog posts, but not in comments.

Plugins are controlled from the control panel, under the Component Management option and Plugins tab.
