Plug-ins are little mini-programmes that add functionality to your website. They allow it to work faster, to do things more easily, to do things you couldn’t otherwise do.
We’ve included a small number of plug-ins as standard that can allow you to create polls, embed photo slideshows from Flickr, and embed calendars from Google.
If there are plug-ins that you would like to be able to use please leave a comment here with a link to the plug-in page that you would like. We’ll then make an assessment of the security and reliability of the plug-in and make it available if suitable.
Some people have asked why they can’t install plug-ins themselves. The answer is that plug-ins work across the whole norfolkparishes.gov.uk site. If an unreliable plug-in was installed then that could affect all 110 sites on this domain. Obviously we don’t want the sites breaking so we need to restrict the uploading of plug-ins and themes.
