Installing the plugin

If you have installed plugins in WordPress before you’ll be familiar with how this works.

If you have just purchased the plugin, you’ll receive a direct download link in your email. This will work for about a day. You can always download the plugin by going to our MaxButtons Dashboard.

Clicking on the Download link will allow you to download the plugin ZIP-file. Remember to where the file is saved.

Apple Safari users: Make sure the ZIP-file is not extracted after download. See this article

Step 2: Upload MaxButtons PRO

In your WordPress admin screen. Go to Plugins -> Add New -> Upload Plugin (top screen). This will open a upload dialog where you can upload MaxButtons PRO.

mb install upload dialog

Select the ZIP-file you have downloaded from our site. In most cases there will be a folder there will be in a folder called ‘ Downloads ‘ or similar. on your computer Select that file, and click the Install Now button

mb install uploadsuccess

After a short while, you should see the above screen. Click on Activate Plugin.

Step 3: Activate your license

Under MaxButtons PRO you’ll see a ‘License’ menu option. Enter your license and click Activate License.

You can find your license in your purchase email and on your MaxButtons Dashboard, next to the Plugin Download. Having an active license ensures you can create buttons and automatically receive new updates via the plugin page.
