How to install a spacer add-on

So you’ve just purchased your Spacer add-on, but what comes next? Read on to find out.

Step 1. Download zip file

When you complete your purchase, you should receive an email that contains a link to the add-on zip install file. Download this zip file.

If you don’t receive the email, please contact me and I will send it your way. In this same email, your license key will be included. Take note of your license key, you will need it later on.

Special note for Mac Safari users
You need to upload the zip file itself, instead of the individual file (or files) contained within the zip. Sometimes Mac Safari users run in to a problem here, because their browser is set to automatically unzip the zip files for them. So the suggestion would be to disable the automatic unzip feature, before downloading the zip file in step 1. This website tells you how to do that:

Step 2. Manually install the plugin zip file

Upload the zip file via WordPress plugin uploader (in your WordPress admin > Plugins > Add New > Upload) and activate it.

Step 3. Enter your license key

You are almost there, but not quite. You first need to enter your license key in your WordPress admin > Settings > Spacer > Licenses (top tab). Remember, the license key is found in your email from step 1.

Step 4. Browse to the new section and enjoy your new add-on!


Congratulations, you have successfully installed your Spacer add-on. Cheers to you!

Thanks for taking the time to follow along with this post. Hope you find it helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions or other feedback in the comments.
