What's a Plugin?
A plugin (or addon) is a small program that adds new function to your Tetra-WebBBS.
The plugin utilizes the core program scripts of Tetra-WebbBS. On the other hand Tetra-WebBBS itself is independent of the plugin.
This makes it possible for plugins to be added, reused on upgrades, and updated dynamically without changes to Tetra-WebBBS.
Tetra-WebBBS' plugins are all super easy to install. In most cases, it's as simple as  uploading the plugin script file(s) to your main scripts folder (the /lib folder coming with the download) and  adding a few lines to Section (3) of your _config.pl(s).
Some day in future Tetra-WebBBS will even attempt to autosense for plugins installed.
Example 1 (one plugin installed):
use lib '/full/path/to/folder/lib'; require 'this_plugin.pl';
Example 2 (two plugins installed):
use lib '/full/path/to/folder/lib'; require 'this_plugin.pl'; require 'that_plugin.pl';
