LimeSurvey has been supporting plugins since version 2.05. Some plugins are supported by the LimeSurvey GmbH team and and some plugins are supported by others, outside the LimeSurvey team.
To access the current available plugins that come with your LimeSurvey installation, click Configuration, and select Plugins.
The following panel will be displayed:
LimeSurvey GmbH supports at the moment the following plugins:

LimeSurvey internal database
The Auditlog plugin creates a log of administration events in a specific table called <DB prefix>auditlog_log.
Export results to R
If enabled, you will be able to export your survey results to R.
If activated, the pages will be displayed in the "wide" mode - the white margins will be reduced in size.
By activating this plugin, you can perform basic authentication against an LDAP server. Make sure your PHP configuration has LDAP support enabled.
Enabling and configuring settings for plugin AuthLDAP v2.05+:
- Enable LDAP in PHP.INI.
- Verify that phpinfo.php shows that LDAP is enabled.
- The location of LimeSurvey's built-in phpinfo.php is: Configuration -- Settings -- Global Settings -- Overview. Then, below the table, you will have a link for "Show PHPInfo".
- Go to LimeSurvey Plugin Manager.
Configure LDAP plugin.
Old url (pre-2.0) compatible system.
Activate it if you wish to export your survey results to a STATA .xml file.
Hit the Configure button to choose whether you want the .xml file be compatible with Stata 8 - State 12, or with State 13 or later.
This plugin leaves authentication to the webserver and reads the result from a configurable server setting. This method has been around for a while, and was configured from config.php. If you used this authentication, you should enable the plugin in the plugins menu and move your configuration from config.php to the plugin's settings.
