A plugin is a small program that adds a function. Plugins on FC2 Blog are supplementary tools and functions that are usually added to the blog's sidebar.



You can easily individually manage, add, delete or change the order of the sidebar's list items or functions or parts made up of plugins. You can change the template without changing the source code so you don't have to be an expert in HTML. Most of FC2's templates support plugins.
