The installation process of wpDataTables is quite simple and straightforward, and shouldn’t cause you any troubles at all. If you have experience with WordPress plugins, you aren’t likely to have any problems. If you don’t have experience, you’re not likely to have any problems as well 🙂
There are 2 ways to do this:
- Option 1 (easier) open your WordPress admin panel, go to Plugins -> Add new -> Upload and choose the zip file that you downloaded from CodeCanyon.
- Option 2 (if first one doesn’t work) open your WordPress installation folder in some FTP manager (CyberDuck, FileZilla, Total Commander, or any other), go to wp-content/plugins/ and upload the folder that you unzipped in previous step
In your WordPress admin panel go to Plugins, find wpDataTables and click “Activate”. Voila, plugin installed!
This is only necessary if you want to receive auto-updates for the plugin. Every purchase on CodeCanyon has a unique purchase code: you can check it whenever you need in the Downloads section. We use this purchase code for auto-update feature authentication. If you want to enable it go to your WordPress admin, open wpDataTables -> settings and paste the Item Purchase Code in the corresponding input box.
