ExpressionEngine add-ons

A quick summary of the available EE2 add-ons.

ExpressionEngine 2 has six types of add-on and the differences between them can be confusing at first.

The original four types - available since EE1 - are:

  • Plugins
  • Modules
  • Extensions
  • Expansions

ExpressionEngine 2 introduced two new types:

  • Field types
  • Accessories

Each type has a different level of complexity and except in the case of plugins and modules their own distinct areas of usage.

I’ll introduce each type of add-on separately.
