One of the least understood aspects of ExpressionEngine is the class of add-ons known as Extensions. Many developers don’t understand why they exist, what they actually do or what problems they solve.
This confusion exists among both Extension users and developers alike. A quick browse of any ExpressionEngine support forum shows that a common first step to solving an issue is to “Disable all Extensions,” yet most don’t know why.
This was is designed to demystify the world of Extensions. The goal was to help everyone, from the general user to the new add-on developer, understand why Extensions exist, what they do and how they work.
