Are plugins on WordPress free?

The right answer to the question “Are plugins on WordPress free?” it depends on a plugin you want to use.

Example, for now, the most popular options inside plugins are:

  • Totaly free plugin. Example of the plugin:  Simple Lightbox – this plugin is totally free and you can install it from your Plugins manager inside your WordPress website.
  • The basic version of the plugin is free but the PRO version is payable. An example of this plugin is the popular Yoast SEO plugin. The pro/premium version of this plugin cost 79€ for one site but the basic version is totally FREE.
  • Payable plugins. Example of this plugin is the WPML plugin the license for basic version cost 29$. With payable plugins, you must be careful often you must first pay for a license and then after one year you must renew your license that you get updates and support for next year.   


Can I make my WordPress site from total free plugins?

Yes, you can. If you don’t need very special functions on your website you can create your website from total free plugins. You don’t need to spend money on payable plugins. But you must know that inside Free plugins support is limited often this support is from the community (forums etc). Free plugins are more often not so user-friendly like payable plugins.

Example of a plugin which you can use instead of payable plugins:

  • Contact Form 7 –  very useful FREE plugin for creating forms on your website. You can use this plugin instead of Ninja forms and other payable WordPress plugins.

How do I find out what plugins are installed on my website?

Manually check if you have admin access to the WordPress website:

If you want to check what plugins are used on your WordPress site there is a simple way to do that.

  1. Log in to your WordPress website and click the Plugins button inside the left menu.



Click the Active button inside the filter to display only active plugins on your website.



All active plugins are now displayed inside the table:


Automatically check with the website: wppluginchecker

On the internet, I have found a simple tool to detect the most popular WordPress plugins.

Go to the website: and enter the website name. Example: After that click button Check site. The site will start checking your WordPress website. After 2-3 min you will get a list of plugins that they are installed on your WordPress websites.

Notice: Currently the website WordPress Plugin Checker detects only 50 most popular WordPress plugins. So probably not all plugins will be detected!

What platform is a website on?

Automatically check what platform is used by the website:

If you want to know what CMS/ platform is used on the website you can use What CMS website checker.

Go to the following website:

Enter a URL of the website and click the button “Detect CMS”.


The website will display what CMS/Platform is used by the website.

Example: our website: use WordPress platform.



Manual check what platform is used by the website:

Most often popular CMS systems generate a meta tag generator inside the source code of the website. So you can manually check the source code and check if the generator meta tag is added.

For example, open a website you want to check. Then open an additional popup menu with a right mouse click. Click View page source button.


Inside source code find generator meta tag.

Example: <meta name=”generatorcontent=”WordPress 4.9.10” />    inside content you can find what CMS is used on website and CMS version in our example websites use: WordPress version 4.9.10.
