Documentation:WordPress/Plugins/Enabling Plugins

From UBC Wiki

If you wish to Enable a plugin, simply:

  1. Log in to you site
  2. Go to Dashboard -> Plugins -> Plugins
  3. Click on the Activate link found under the desired plugin's Action column. (NOTE: A Deactivate link will be present if the plugin is already activated)
  4. Click on Dashboard. Your plugin should be installed now!

To Deactivate a plugin, go to the same page where you activated the plugin and click on the Deactivate link that has now replaced the Activate link.

Pro tip: Only activate plugins you are using; fewer active plugins generally means a faster site.
