  Attention : The following wiki section covers how to install and activate a plugin. Note that third-party plugins may not be safe to run! They may break your installation! Please, proceed carefully! In the case in which you do need to use a plugin but you do not know whether you should run it or not, contact your LimeSurvey instance provider!

For advanced information on the plugin system, check our wiki section for advanced users.


The following panel allows you to access the settings of the active LimeSurvey plugins (they are located in the Plugin manager).

To access the local plugin panel, click the Settings tab and scroll down until you see the Plugins menu:

Click the Simple plugins button. A page with all the active plugins that allow survey administrators choose certain plugin-related settings will be displayed:

In the above screenshot, the "AuditLog" plugin is active and asks the survey administrator whether the survey logs should be audited or not.

  Attention : Please note that certain providers limit the access to third-party plugins. For example, LimeSurvey GmbH provides Professional packages (quick access to LimeSurvey instances) without providing the necessary permissions to its users to install third-party plugins because of security concerns - e.g., the installation of an unsupported plugin may break down your LimeSurvey instance.
