Installing Modules

The process of installing a WordPoints module is very similar to that of installing a WordPress plugin. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Step 1: Downloading #

The first step is downloading your module. For a free module, all you have to do is click on the “Download” button on the module’s home page.
