Plugins are pretty much essential to run a successful wordpress site and they also give you a bunch different options and the ability to transform your site into something spectacular. This is just a basic tutorial that will teach you how to upload and update your wordpress plugins.
Log into your WordPress admin and to the left hand side click Plugins > Add New.
On the page that opens up you can either search for a plugin and install it OR if you are uploading a plugin, click the “Upload Plugin” button (You’ll be clicking the Upload Plugin button when using our premade themes).
You’ll then see a little box open up underneath, upload your plugin and hit “Install Now”.
Once it’s uploaded, a new page will open up, hit “Activate plugin”.
Once your plugin is installed, go back to the plugins menu and select “Installed Plugins”.
On the installed plugins page, hit the checkbox to select all of your plugins, on the dropdown next to it, select “Update” and hit “Apply”.
Congratulations, you’ve now installed a plugin and updated it, do this for all of your future plugins.
