Installing and Activating Plugins for a WordPress Site

A plugin can be added to WordPress by logging in, going to the “Plugins” menu, choosing “Add New,” searching for the plugin you wish to add, clicking “Install Now,” and then clicking “Activate” when the installation is through.

Follow these steps to install a plugin in WordPress:

  • Open your WordPress dashboard and log in.
  • Choose “Add New” from the “Plugins” menu by going there.
  • Use the search bar to look up the plugin you wish to install.
  • After the installation is finished, click “Activate” and then “Install Now.”
  • An alternative method of installing a plugin is to upload its.zip file to your website. How to do it:

The plugin’s.zip file can be downloaded to your computer.

  • Choose “Add New” from the “Plugins” menu by going there.
  • The “Upload Plugin” button is located at the top of the page.
  • When prompted, choose the plugin.zip file you downloaded by clicking “Choose File.”
  • After the installation is finished, click “Activate” and then “Install Now.”
  • Note: It’s always a good idea to check a plugin’s compatibility with your current version of WordPress and its ratings and reviews before installing it.
