Install the WPSSO UM Add-on

WPSSO Core Plugin Required

WPSSO Update Manager (aka WPSSO UM) is an add-on for the WPSSO Core plugin — to install and activate the WPSSO UM add-on, you must already have installed and activated the WPSSO Core plugin.

Install the Add-on

Standard version

  1. Go to the admin section of your WordPress site.
  2. Select the SSO menu item.
  3. Select the Complementary Add-ons settings page.
  4. Scroll down and locate the "WPSSO Update Manager" add-on.
  5. Click the Add-on Details and Install link.

    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.

  6. Click the Install Now button in the add-on details window.
  7. Click the Activate Plugin button when WordPress is finished installing the plugin.
  8. The add-on settings page is available under the SSO > Update Manager sub-menu.

If you have a WordPress multisite (aka network) setup, please note that the WPSSO Core plugin and the WPSSO Update Manager add-on must be activated on the default WordPress 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 blog (ie. BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE) to manage updates in the network admin interface, which means the default blog must be licensed to install updates. You can find additional information on managing multisite licensing here.
