We often get asked how to install a WordPress plugin – here’s a 3 step guide that gets straight to the point. This will apply to most plugins – although if you’re installing a plugin that needs additional settings or configuration you’re best best is to follow the installation instructions from the plugin developer.

Anyway, lets get to the guide…

Step 1

  1. Log in to your WordPress account and go to your Dashboard.
  2. Click Plugins and select Add new.

Step 2

  1. Click Upload plugin.
  2. Click Choose file and select your-plugin-file.zip.
  3. Click Install Now.

Step 3

  1. Click Activate plugin.

You’re done!

Your plugin has now been installed, and activated. If the plugin requires additional configuration you may see an additional screen with instructions – otherwise, enjoy your new WordPress features!
