Recently one of my client switched from WordPress.com free blog to self-hosted WordPress blog. Plugin is a new feature to her. One the first day, she asked me how to install a plugin in her blog. Here is an article about installing plugins for WordPress beginners.
A plugin can be installed in two ways.
- WordPress built-in installer If the plugin is available in WordPress Plugin Repository, go to Dashboard > Plugins > Add New and search the plugin. This will show you a list of plugins with searched keyword phrase. Choose the appropriate plugin, click Install Now to install the plugin. Once the plugin is installed, click Activate Plugin to activate the plugin.
- Traditional manual installation If you have .zip file of the plugin, then go to Dashboard > Plugins > Add New > Upload, select the file from your computer and press Install Now. Repeat the same above instructions to activate the plugin.
