1.1 Installation

From WordPress.org

BookPress’s free version can be installed directly from the WordPress plugin repository:

  1. Go to WP Dashboard → Plugins → Add new
  2. Now search for ‘Book-Press’ on the search bar to the right (careful there is another unrelated program called BookPress on the repository).
  3. Click on Install.
  4. Activate.

From a Zip File

If you choose, you can download a Zip file from the WordPress Repository.

To install from a zip:

  1. Go to WP Dashboard → Plugins → Add new
  2. Click on ‘Upload Plugin’ button
  3. Select your zip file using the ‘Browse’ option
  4. Upload
  5. Activate

You can also download a copy of the plugin  from the Members Dashboard here.

(You will receive your login credentials after your first purchase, and for security reasons, will have to update your auto-generated password upon your first login.)

Checking the software is installed

If you are installing BookPress for the first time, you will find a new ‘BookPress’ item in the WordPress sidebar on the left of your screen.

Pro Version Upgrade

You can upgrade to the Pro version from within the Settings screen of the BookPress sidebar menu.
