How Do I Install an Addon
In this Article
ProjectHuddle addons are actually just WordPress plugins. In order to utilize any of our ProjectHuddle Addons, you’ll need to first install and activate them. There are two different ways it can be done. One is via the WordPress installer and the other is via FTP.
Installing via WordPress
In your WordPress dashboard, go to Plugins → Add New.
From there you’ll see an option at the top of the page for Upload Plugin.
Click this button, use the file chooser, navigate your computer files and select the .ZIP file for your downloaded extension. Once it’s uploaded, click the “ Activate” link.
Installing via FTP
Before transferring the plugin you'll need to unzip the file. In OSX this is done by simply double clicking the zip file. In Windows right click on the zip file and choose Extract All. Both of the above instructions will create a new folder named the same as the zip file.
Next connect to your server with your FTP program. Once connected you'll want to find the Document Root for your site. This simply means the folder where all of your WordPress files are. It's often called public_html or named the same as your site's domain name, but it could be anything. If you're unsure, please ask your host.
Once you know where your Document Root is, use your FTP program to go into
wp-content/plugins/. Then use your FTP program to upload the plugin folder that was created when you unzipped the plugin file.
NOTE: make sure to upload the plugin folder, not the zip file. The zip file won't function on your site.
Once the folder is completely uploaded, your plugin will be listed on the WordPress plugins page, and you may click the Activate link next to it.
After you install and activate the addon, you'll want to activate it on your domain. This ensures you get automatic updates through your WordPress admin when there are new features and bug fixes.
To do this, navigate to ProjectHuddle > Settings and click the Updates tab. Ensure you have your license key added already. If this is already entered, click "Activate next to the plugin title on the page.
