Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Like many people, I rely on plugins such as Superfish, Nivo Slider, Google Charts, etc. for Web design.

Which Stackexchange site is the best to ask customization questions on these plugins? I am not talking about writing code (in which case Stackoverflow would be my choice), I am just talking about questions on the out of the box configuration options, or alternatives to a given plugin.

I have found older, similar questions, but people seem to have divergent opinions. I'd like to know the "official line" (I tagged this question "support", not "discussion").

First and foremost: Stack Exchange isn't a forum. It's a network of Question and Answer sites. They are fundamentally different from forums. (Check the FAQ and the /about pages for more information on that). Now that we got that out of the way:

I think your best bet is on Web Masters, that's assuming the plugin discussion is web-based, and you're looking for extra configurations or settings.

If you're interested in extending them code-wise, Stack Overflow is the place for you.

Point taken, I have removed the term "forum" from the question. – Christophe Feb 28 '13 at 18:46
Actually even though this site isn't a internet forum, it is still a forum as in a place for discussion. So I wouldn't go all bold on people for using such a term. – daramarak Feb 28 '13 at 22:21
