2. Theme. The look and feel of your site. You can buy a theme or have a custom one created for you.
3. Plugins. Add features and functionality beyond the core installation.
You need the WordPress core and a theme for WordPress to work. Plugins are not required.
How It Works Together
1. Content is added to your website / blog through the Administration Panel (part of the core).
2. It’s stored in a MySQL database.
3. Your website shows the stored database content. The appearance is controlled by the Theme.
