For this method, you’ll need a piece of FTP (file transfer protocol) software to transfer the files to your blog hosting directory. Thankfully, there are some free ones, like FileZilla.

  • Download the plugin and extract it to a location on your hard drive.
  • Now, in your FTP software connect to your site (your host will be able to give you the details you need to be able to do this) and navigate to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  • Next, upload everything that has been extracted from the Plugin’s ZIP file to that location.
  • Once you upload the plugin via FTP, you should see it listed in the Plugins section of your WordPress Admin Panel. But this time it’s deactivated. Simply click the Activate link.
