Download the free version of the plugin from WordPress.org clicking on the "Download" button you can find in this page.
Go to your member area on yithemes.com.
Go to "Licenses & Downloads" and click on the "Download plugin" button next to the plugin you want to download.
Install the plugin in your WordPress platform: add the .zip file you have downloaded in the WordPress plugins directory (wp-content->plugins).
You can also achieve the same result using the upload feature of WordPress to upload the Zip file.
Then click on the "Add new" option in you can find in Plugins, anc click on the "Upload Plugin" button.
After completing the upload of the plugin, you can activate it. Go to "Plugins", select the plugin and click on the "Activate" option.
In order to work correctly, the plugin must be installed by following the previous steps. However, if you have purchased the premium version of the plugin and you want to benefit from automatic updates by the development team, or access the support platform to receive help by our staff, you need to activate the plugin.
Go to your member area on yithemes.com and click on the "Licenses and Downloads" tab to get your license key and activate the plugin.
Now access your WordPress platform, go to "YITH" then to the tab License Activation.
Select the YITH plugin for which you want to enable the license, enter both the email address associated to the account on yithemes.com and the license key.
If the activation process worked correctly, you will see a screen like the following.
All YITH plugins will renew automatically every year at the purchase price.
It means that the system creates a recurring payment during the purchase process to renew the license automatically and allow the user to keep benefiting from support service and updates.
To know when the next renewal for your plugins is due, you just need to access your site and go to the YITH -> License Activation section.
Automatic renewals can be disabled by the user manually. Just go to the Licenses and Subscriptions section on yithemes.com and set the automatic renewal to "Off" like shown in the following image.
PLEASE NOTE - if your license has already expired and you enable the automatic renewal again from the page Subscriptions on our site, a new payment for the purchase of the plugin will be immediately processed.
