Once you finish your purchase of Social Warfare, you should receive an email confirmation of the subscription. If you’re using the premium version of Social Warfare, you will need to install and activate both the core plugin and the Pro addon.

To download Social Warfare Pro, you can visit your Account page and scroll down to Purchase History, then click View Details and Downloads. You’ll see a link for toward the bottom, which you can right-click to save 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 and/or 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, 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.
