    Plugin is an extension which provides a function that is associated with any trigger events. Following are the files required for creating a simple custom plugin in Joomla.

    1 myfirsttest.xml
    2 myfirsttest.php
    3 index.html

    First for creating a custom plugin we need to create an xml file which includes information about the author of plugin and what files are required for that plugin.

    <extension version="2.5" type="plugin" group="content">
            <name>plg_content_myfirsttest</name>
            <author>Kshitiz dixit</author>
            <creationdate>december 18th, 2015</creationDate>   
        <copyright>Evontech</copyright>
            <license>GNU General Public License</license>
            <authoremail>kshitiz.dixit@evontech.com</authoremail>
            <authorurl>http://www.evontech.com</authorurl>
            <version>1.0</version>
            <description>Simple custom plugin which prints text  in any article content.</description>
            <files>
                    <filename plugin="myfirsttest">myfirsttest.php</filename>
                    <filename>index.html</filename>
            </files>
    </creationdate></extension>
    

    Next step is to create a php file which does all the work. As we are creating a content based plugin name my firsttest, so file should be saved as myfirsttest.php.

    <?php
    
    defined('__JEXEC') or die;
    
    class plgContentMyfirsttest extends JPlugin
    {
        public function onContentAfterTitle($context, &amp;$article, &amp;$params, $limitstart)
            {
                    return "my first test plugin created successfully!";
            }
    }
    
    ?>
    

    Next and last step is to create an index.html file in which we don't need to place any code inside that file and compress into a zip file name as myfirsttest.zip.
