WordPress: Install and Configure a Plugin

You can expand and add new features to your site by adding new plugins.  Navigate to plugins in your dashboard to see your plugins page.  This is where you can see all of your currently installed plugins.  Inactive plugins can be activated simply by clicking activate.  Once activated, you will then have the option to deactivate them.

Its good to keep only the plugins you need active, to ensure that your site does not bog down.  Some plugins will have a settings option that will take  you to a page where you can configure the plugin.

To install a new plugin, navigate to plugins and select “Add New.” If you don’t’ have this option, you should contact your site or network administrator.  From this page you can search for new plugins using the name or descriptive words of what you want the plugin to do.  Or you can use the “Featured”  “Popular” and “Favorites” at the top.  Once you find the plugin that you would like to install, simply click “Install Now.”

If you have a plugin on your computer that you want to install, click upload plugin.  Use the file file browser to find the zipped plugin file and click install now.  From here, you can activate the plugin or return to the plugin page.

If you have any problems configuring and setting up your plugins, be sure to contact your administrator or the plugin developer.
