How to install and activate a WordPress plugin

Hello. Today I’m going to show you how to install and activate a plugin for use on your WordPress site.

1. In the left sidebar of the admin dashboard, hover over “Plugins”, and in the drop-down menu click “Add New”, which will take you to the following page as seen in the image below:

2. You can then look (and search) for which plugin you want to install.

3. Then click on the “Install Now” button and your plugin should be installed in¬†seconds.

4. Then, go back to the “Plugins” page where you should see your recently installed plugin. Click on “Activate” and boom – your plugin is ready for use!

5. You should now see your activated plugin in the sidebar.

Thank you for taking this tutorial and I’ll see you guys later.
