Installing Matador

Installing Matador Jobs or any of its extensions is simple. Here is what you need:

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:

  • Visit your-site.com/wp-admin.
  • Enter your username and password.
  • Click Log In.

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 Install Now.

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!
