How to Install Locations Pro for WordPress


Please note: in order to use Locations Pro, you’ll first need to install the free version of Locations from the WordPress Plugin Directory. Locations Pro will automatically integrate itself with the free plugin.

Step 1: Download the Locations Pro plugin

After purchasing, download Locations Pro from the Gold Plugins Members portal. You will receive the plugin as a zip file.

Step 2: Upload the zip file to WordPress, or unzip it and upload it using FTP

You can install Locations Pro using the Plugins » Add New menu in WordPress. Just upload the zip containing the plugin, and follow the on-screen instructions to activate it. Please note, this feature depends on your server’s configuration, and may not be supported on your website.

You can also unzip the file, and use an FTP client to upload the contents of the /locations-pro/ folder to your website’s /wp-content/plugins/ directory. Once you’ve uploaded the plugin, be sure to visit the Plugins page in WordPress to activate Locations Pro.

Step 3: Activate Locations Pro with your API Key

Once you’ve activated the plugin, you’ll be taken to the License Information screen in Locations Settings.

On this page, you’ll see a form for you to enter your API Key to Activate the Pro plugin. Activating your plugin is required to receive automatic updates or to receive technical support.

You API key should have arrived in your email when you purchased Locations Pro, as well as being available on your purchase receipt. You can always retrieve your API key from the Members portal.
