How to Install a Plugin

Install through the Search

  1. Navigate to PLUGINS>ADD NEW
  2. Search for your plugin in the upper right side of the screen.  As you type the plugins will begin appearing.
  3. Choose the Plugin you'd like to install and hit the Install button.
  4. Wait for it to install and then click the Activate button.

Install by uploading a zip file

If you have purchased a third party plugin or downloaded a plugin from the WordPress repository, you can also upload the file right from your WordPress dashboard.

  1. Navigate to PLUGINS>ADD NEW
  2. Up by the page title you'll see a button that says Upload Plugin.
  3. Browse for the ZIP file on your computer and upload. (Not sure how to zip the file?)
  4. Wait for it to install and then click the Activate button.

I also have a video on how to upload plugins right here.
