Once you finish your purchase of Social Warfare – Pro, you should receive an email confirmation of the subscription. Before installing Social Warfare – Pro, you will need to install and activate the core plugin (free).
To download Social Warfare Pro, you can visit your Account page and click on the Downloads tab. You’ll see a link for
Social Warfare in the purchased items list, which you can click on and begin the file download to your computer.
This link will always have the most current version of the plugin, should you ever need to download it again.
Don’t see the .zip file?
In some cases, certain operating systems will automatically unzip files once you’ve downloaded them. If you don’t see the
.zip file and only see a folder named
social-warfare-pro then you will need to compress (or “zip”) the file yourself before attempting to upload it to WordPress.
You can also hold the CTRL button on your keyboard (or Command if you use a Mac) while clicking the download link to prevent the files from unzipping themselves.
You may also want to do a quick check of your Downloads folder just to be sure that the .zip version of the file isn’t still in there.
Installing Social Warfare
Once you’ve downloaded
social-warfare-pro.zip, simply login to your WordPress install and navigate to
Plugins > Add New > Upload and upload the files. WordPress will then give you the option to activate the plugins (click the Activate Plugin link). The core Social Warfare plugin can be installed by searching in
Plugins > Add New from the WordPress plugin directory.
Once you’ve activated both plugins, you can proceed straight to the new Social Warfare tab in your WordPress side menu and Register the plugin.
