The installation process for wpDataTables is simple and straightforward, and shouldn’t cause you any trouble. Regardless of your previous experiences with WordPress plugins, you aren’t likely to have any problems if you follow these simple steps:
1.Download the file from CodeCanyon
Once you purchase wpDataTables, you can download the ZIP file from CodeCanyon to your computer. The ZIP file contains the current wpDataTables. Download it to your computer. You will get a ZIP file with the plugin name – ‘codecanyon-3958969-wpdatatables-tables-and-charts-manager-for-wordpress‘.
2.Upload the plugin to your WordPress
There are 2 ways to do this:
- Option 1 (easiest) open your WordPress admin panel, go to Plugins -> Add new -> Upload, and choose the zip file that you downloaded from CodeCanyon.
- Option 2 (in case the first option doesn’t work) – Unzip the file that you downloaded from CodeCanyon. Open your WordPress installation folder to an FTP manager (it could be CyberDuck, FileZilla, Total Commander, or some other), go to wp-content/plugins/, and upload the folder you previously.
3. Activate the plugin
In your WordPress admin panel go to Plugins, find wpDataTables, and click “Activate”. Plugin installed!
4. 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.
