Before you install a plugin, you need to make sure that you are installing it from a reputable source. Next, you need to upload the plugin file to your WordPress site. You can use FTP or SFTP to do this. Once the file is uploaded, click the Activate Plugin link to begin using the plugin. You may also need to change some settings for the plugin before using it on your website.

Choosing a reputable source

When installing a WordPress plugin, you'll want to choose a high-quality plugin developed by a reputable developer. This way, you know that it won't slow your website down or add malicious code. In addition, you can be sure that the plugin isn't incompatible with the core of WordPress. One of the best ways to make sure your plugin is safe is to read reviews.

Another important consideration is the plugin author. It is not always easy to determine whether or not a developer is reputable or not. While new developers may offer good plugins, their track records may be limited. It's important to look for a developer with a solid reputation and a long history of developing plugins.

Uploading a wordpress plugin via FTP

FTP is a protocol used to upload WordPress files. You can use FileZilla or another FTP client to upload your WordPress plugin directory. Make sure you have access to your web host's FTP server. You will need to have the username and password to access your website.

Once you've logged into your web hosting account, you can use your FTP client to upload files. FTP clients are free, open-source, and easy to use. Developers also provide plenty of documentation to help you get started.

Using a file manager

File managers can help you organize your files on your WordPress site. They provide search functionality, sorting, and filtering. They can also automatically create folders based on categories for easy browsing. You can also choose to display different information about each file on your site, such as thumbnails, the author's name, the date it was updated, and download buttons.

The next step is to open your WordPress dashboard and navigate to the Media – Library page. From here, you'll find a drag-and-drop file upload area. Drag the files from your computer to the page.

Using SFTP

You may be wondering how to install a WordPress plugin via SFTP. The process is very similar to installing a plugin through upload. First, you need an FTP client (such as FileZilla). Once you have this installed, you need to get access to your website through an SFTP server. You can either get a SFTP account from your website's administrator or create one yourself in your hosting account.

To install a WordPress plugin through SFTP, first extract the plugin ZIP file to your computer. Some unzipping tools will automatically add a parent folder outside the plugin directory. Next, use your FTP software to upload the plugin directory to your server.
