Install the WPSSO PLM Add-on

WPSSO Core Plugin Required

WPSSO Place / Location and Local Business Meta (aka WPSSO PLM) is an add-on for the WPSSO Core plugin — to install and activate the WPSSO PLM add-on, you must already have installed and activated the WPSSO Core plugin.

If you purchased one or more WPSSO PLM Premium add-on licenses, you received an email with a unique Authentication ID that will be required to install and update the WPSSO PLM Premium add-on.

Install the Add-on

Free / Standard version

    If the link is named Plugin Details instead (no "Install" in the name) then the add-on is already installed and you can simply activate the add-on from the WordPress Plugins page.

If you have a WordPress multisite (aka network) setup, please note that the WPSSO PLM add-on and the WPSSO Update Manager add-on must be activated on the default site / blog to get Premium version updates. This is a requirement of WordPress, not the WPSSO Core plugin or its add-ons — WordPress uses the default site / blog to manage updates in the network admin interface (which means the default site must be licensed to install updates). You can find additional information on managing multisite licensing here.
