First, hover over the “Plugins” category on the navigation bar and click on “Add New”.
You will be taken to a page with a navigation bar at the top and a grid of available plugins below. Begin by searching for a specific type in the search bar at the top right of the page, or browse through the different categories. You can browse through featured, popular, recommended, and favorites.
Find the option you want
When you find the option you want, click install now.
After you install, you have to activate. You can do this in two different ways. The first option is to go to what you have installed by clicking on the option underneath “Plugins” on the navigation bar. Then you click “activate” for whichever one you wish to use.
Other way to activate your plugin
The other way to activate it is to remain on the same page after installation. The “Install Now” button will turn into an “Activate” button. Click on that.
Each download is different
Regarding usage, each download is different. To understand how to use a specific item, either click on “More Details” underneath the activate button, or return to your installed plugins and click on “View Details” underneath the desired item. Typically, the descriptions also give insight into how to use it.
