  2. Click browse and select the zip file.
  3. Once you’ve selected the file click Install Now.
  4. Once the plugin is uploaded and installed choose Activate Plugin.

If the plugin is deployed under a WordPress MultiSite environment, when activated within individual blog instead Network Admin, it can be used whenever the code is active.
