Nucleus allows you to install custom plugins, adding extra functionality. Plugins can do different things:

  1. Act as a skin variable
  2. Act as a template variable
  3. Hook into events generated by Nucleus. The 'move up' and 'move down' links in 'manage plugins' screen can be used to define the order in which plugins will be called when such an event occurs. The first plugin in the list will be called first, the last one will be called last.
  4. Act as actors when called through action.php

Note that the responsibility for plugins is entirely with the plugin author. He should make sure that everything works fine.
