The Newspack Plugin brings together a collection of custom plugins and themes developed by the Newspack team.

We also maintain a list of approved third-party plugins that can be used by any Newspack site. If any publisher wants to use a plugin that doesn’t yet appear on this list, we have a review process to ensure the plugin is secure, performant, and reliable. If the plugin is not being maintained and you see a notice indicating that “This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest X major releases of WordPress.” on the WordPress.org plugin page, we will not review or approve.

To submit a plugin for review, please use this form.
