InstallationInstalling the wpDataTables plugin

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 our TMS Store
Once you purchase wpDataTables, you can download the ZIP file from our TMS Store  or from your email that you get when you make purchase (some hostings treat it like a Spam so please check your Spam folder as well). Also, you receive email with credentials for our TMS Store where you can download premium version to your computer. The ZIP file contains the current wpDataTables. Download it to your computer.

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 our TMS Store.
  • Option 2 (in case the first option doesn’t work) – Unzip the file that you downloaded from our TMS Store. 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 our TMS Store 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->Activation tab, and paste the Item Purchase Code in the corresponding input box.

If you have any problems when uploading your file, please check your server permissions.

Please note that our plugin have size around 10 MB so if yo are not able to upload plugin through WordPress plugins page, then you need to increase

upload_max_file size,

post_max_size ,


You should be able to find these values in your php.ini file or on your hosting panel. If you can’t find it yourself please ask your hosting provider to provide it.
