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 🙂

Download the file from CodeCanyon and unzip it

Once you purchase wpDataTables, you will be able to download the ZIP file from CodeCanyon, containing the current version.

Download it to your computer and unzip it. You will get a folder with current version’s name, e.g. ‘wpdatatables_1_6’.

Upload the plugin to your WordPress

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

Activate the plugin

In your WordPress admin panel go to Plugins, find wpDataTables and click “Activate”. Voila, plugin installed!

(Optional) Enter your purchase code for auto-updates

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.
