Nucleus CMS Plugins

Plugins can extend Nucleus to almost everything you desire. The reason why some features are not included in the Nucleus Core is that we didn't want it to become bloated. Some of you will like some features, others will like different ones. Nucleus provides a lightweight tool that can be used for different purposes, by simply plugging in the needed features - commonly called “plugins”.

Authors adding a new plugin (or updating an existing one) please note the wiki template to follow for formatting your plugin's whatisawiki page.

Plugin authors updating the plugin list here are requested to also modify the list sorted by category.


Welcome to the No. 1 Nucleus CMS plugins directory. Here you will find most of the plugins that are currently available for Nucleus. However, this list is never complete since plugins emerge almost on a daily basis, and not all authors submit their plugin to this wiki. I would like to thank all the contributors of this page for making it a good resource. If you want to submit your plugin, please take a look at the template for a plugin page in this wiki.

If this is your first visit to this wiki, don't be alarmed, it's all quite easy. See the Frontpage for an introduction and SandBox for some practice editing. This page can be edited by anyone. So if you've written a plugin for Nucleus, submit it here, and share the functionality.

Missing a plugin? Add it to the Wishlist.

You can find an essential plugins package here for the Nucleus 3.2 release. This package is a bundle of plugins which are considered to be commonly used among Nucleus users. Currently there are 8 plugins in this package, like trackback and blacklist.

(If you know some Japanese, check out the plugin overview on the Japanese Nucleus community site)
