How to Install WordPress Plugins

Learning how to install WordPress plugins is essential to any blogger out there. There are so many different tools you can integrate into your blog by knowing how to install them.

For example, I currently have a plugin that buffs up the security on my website so I don’t get hacked. I also have a plugin for Newsletter popups to help me get more sign-ups on my blog.

There’s literally a plugin developed for everything. However, some plugins require a payment to unlock the full features. Otherwise, most plugins are free to use.

Here are the steps to installing WordPress plugins:

1. Accessing the plugin screen
