WordPress Plugin Installation
To install the plugin directly from the WordPress admin panel, please first log-in to your wp-admin console.
To install the plugin using FTP software, log in to the server where your WordPress website is hosted.
First extract bt_cost_calculator folder from downloaded bt_cost_calculator.zip file.
Now connect to your server via FTP and navigate to the wp-content/plugins folder in your WordPress directory online. Upload bt_cost_calculator folder to the plugins’ folder on your remote server.
Once the plugin is uploaded, you need to activate it. Go to ‘Plugins > Installed Plugins’, find Cost Calculator and click ‘Activate’ button.
Since Cost Calculator version 2.2.4, once you install and activate plugin (or just update plugin to that version if you had it previously), a new option, Product License, will appear in Cost Calculator panel.
Once you enter Cost Calculator’s purchase code you will be able to receive notifications about new plugin versions, and update it through your dashboard, in Updates panel.
Please note that you are not required to enter purchase code in order for the plugin to work. Registration with purchase code is only used to receive plugin updates through wp-admin panel.
2. When it is installed, choose xml file from demo_data folder and click ‘Upload file and import’.
3. On the following screen make sure that ‘Download and import file attachments’ is checked. Click ‘Submit’ button and wait until import is finished.
4. Once demo import is done, you should see imported demo calculators in Cost Calculator panel.
Please unpack plugin folder and upload to your wp-content/plugins using FTP. The archive contains not only plugin but also the other files.
If you want to upload in admin panel, you need to unpack plugin folder (bt_cost_calculator) and pack it again as zip and then upload that zip.
