The General Plugin can be used to create all existing types of Plugins. However, most plugins are already listed as separate content elements. It makes no difference whether you select a general plugin and then, for example, set comments or insert the content element comments directly. All plugins are marked in the content area with the symbol that you see here.
In the general Plug-In, click in the field under Selected Plugin and select the desired option from the list that appears with a left-click. A context window informs you that a change will affect the available fields. Select OK. The next steps depend on which plugin you have chosen.
In the list of plugins you will find only two plugins that cannot be inserted as separate content elements. We present the plugin Email Confirmation in the Account Content Elements. The second plugin that can only be inserted via the general plugin is YouTube Videos. We present the latter plugin in this section.
After confirming the changes, the view is automatically updated, so that you are back in the General tab. The Plugin tab is displayed in red in the register card. Whenever a tab is red or fields are outlined in red, it means that essential information is missing. Without such information a content element cannot work.
