Plugins are ways to extend and add new features to the functionality that already exists in WordPress. They are made to match your specific needs. That’s why there are thousands of them in WordPress, as it’s considered the most popular content management system. WP users prefer WordPress because of the simplicity and quantity of Plugins. Developers in turn create more and more plugins because of the quantity of WP users.

And having more and more custom plugins, that will suit your needs, will lead to the improvement of your  website’s development in general.

Just take a look at this WordPress Plugin Directory that accommodates nearly 1400 pages of plugins. And there are 30 plugins on one page. Do the math. 1,260,000 WordPress Plugins live! 1,260,000, that’s not even considering the plugins in development right now. The figures show that there are more plugin developers than we can even imagine.
