Extension Setup

In this lesson you’ll learn how to setup each extension for your specific project.

These plugins connect your WordPress site to the app, and allow for special features.  You must install and configure these plugins on your WordPress site before building your app on myapppresser.com.

Install AppPresser core plugin and theme

First, install and activate the  AppPresser core plugin. Login to your WordPress website, go to Plugins->Add New, and search for “AppPresser.” Install and activate.

Next, download the AP3 Ion Theme from your purchase receipt email, or from your  account page.

Go to Appearance->Themes->Add New->Upload, and upload the theme .zip file.  Please note that the AppPresser Theme cannot be uploaded as a plugin.

Do not activate the theme, it should stay inactive. The AppPresser core plugin handles switching this to the active theme for the mobile app using the app-only theme setting.

Configuring extensions

Next, you’ll install and activate any extensions. For each extension, download the .zip file from your   account page. Login to your WordPress website, go to Plugins->Add New->Upload, and upload the .zip file (do not unzip the file before uploading).

Activate each extension after uploading.

Apply your license key in the appropriate key location. If you see a green bar that says “Activated”, you have successfully applied a valid key. Otherwise, it’ll let you know that your license key is invalid or provide a link to acquire one.
