Installing WordPress Plugins

by WPTutorials101

Once you’ve installed WordPress on your hosting, one of the first things you’ll want to do is add a few plugins. This video shows how to download and activate the free plugins available from the WordPress plugin repository, plus how to upload other paid-for plugins that you’ve downloaded to your PC after buying them. The procedure is very similar for both options.

Whilst we’re showing you HOW to download plugins from the WordPress repository, we thought we’d take the opportunity to show you a few of the basic plugins that we often use when first setting up a new WordPress website.

We hope you find it useful!
