The Famous 5-Minute Installation

  1. Download the pro plugin package from https://www.mapsmarker.com/download-pro
  2. Login on your WordPress site with your user account (which needs to have admin rights!)
  3. Select “Add New” from the “Plugins” menu:
    plugin-install-step1
  4. Select “Upload” from the “Install Plugins”-submenu:
    plugin-install-step2
  5. Click on the button (search) and select the previously downloaded ZIP-file:
    plugin-install-step3
  6. Click “Install now”:
    plugin-install-step4
  7. Click “Activate Plugin”:
    plugin-install-step5
  8. The plugin is now installed on your server. Now you have to activate the plugin by entering a license key:
      • Option A: if you already purchased a pro license key, please enter your license key at the bottom and press the button “activate”
      • Option B: if you want to start a free 30 day trial by getting a personalized license key, please enter your first name, last name, email address and press the button “Start personlized free 30-day trial period”. Your trial will expire automatically unless you purchase a valid pro license key.
      • Option C: if you want to start a free 30 day trial by getting an anonymous license key, please click on “click here for more information” and then press the button “Start anonymous free 30-day trial period”.
        Please note that a free 30-day trial period can only be started once per domain! You will also not be able to open support tickets or get an information when your license has expired. Your trial will also expire automatically unless you purchase a valid pro license key.
      • Option D: If you install Maps Marker Pro on a localhost installation (see available packages), registering a free 30-day trial license key is not mandatory and the plugin can also be tested without time limitation (registering for a license key is recommended though)
