Installing Matador Jobs or any of its extensions is simple. Here is what you need:
- A Matador Jobs plugin ZIP file. If you need to download one, review our guide on downloading a Matador Jobs plugin ZIP.
- A fully installed WordPress website with administrator-level access.
Log Into Your WordPress Site
As people who are familiar with WordPress already know, it is very simple to add a plugin to WordPress. If you’re new to WordPress, however, step one will be simply logging into WordPress.
You must have an Administrator-level access to your WordPress site. This step will require you have your username and password. The standard method is to do the following:
- Enter your username and password.
Note: Non-standard WordPress installations may look and behave differently, including by requiring 2-factor authentication or by changing the look of your login screen.
Go to the Plugins Page and Add a New Plugin
Once logged in, look in the left-hand side for the
Plugins menu item and click on it.
Note: If you do not see a
Plugins menu item, this may indicate your user does not have administrator-level access.
Now click on
Add New at the top of the screen to access the plugin installation page.
Upload, Install, and Activate the Plugin
This page shows popular WordPress plugins available on the official plugin repository. While Matador Jobs Lite is available on the official repository, Matador Jobs Pro and the Matador Jobs Extensions are not available on the repository.
To upload the Matador Jobs ZIP file you downloaded, first click on
Upload Plugin in the top left.
You can now either drag-and-drop the file to the field or click on
Choose File button to launch a file browser and navigate to the file. After the file is selected, click on
The page will change and notify you that the plugin has installed. After installation is completed, you will be prompted to Activate Plugin.
Congratulations, you’ve successfully installed Matador Jobs!
