Extending Textpattern

From Textpattern CMS User Documentation

Textpattern is a lean publishing platform, and appropriate use of Forms and Tags can do a lot. When certain requirements cannot be met by Forms and Tags along, Textpattern can be extended with Plugins.

Plugins allow functional extension of Textpattern without jeopardising paths of future updates. While there are no guarantee that plugins will continue to work as intended after an update (plugin authors must ensure their plugins work at every new Textpattern release), there is a lot of effort put into maintaining backwards compatibility within the development branch of Textpattern itself.
