Easy, Step-By-Step WordPress Plugin Installation
Here’s a very simply, step-by-step video guide that will walk you through installing a WordPress plugin on your site.
One great tip is to really look at the plugin reviews and how recent it was updated. The last thing you want to do is install a plugin that hasn’t been updated and which other users have had issues with.
One Thing About WordPress Plugin Reviews
In most cases, the reviews are very helpful when you’re trying to decide about installing a WordPress plugin. But you have to use some basic common sense here too. There are some people that simply want everything for free, and they’ll leave a 1-star review, with a horrible reply, simply because they were asked to pay for a premium plugin feature. If you’re not sure about a plugin, try emailing the plugin developer and see if there is any support available and how responsive they are to customer service requests.
