Introduction

This training is specially for anyone who is trying to install a Wordpress plugin, and is is response to questions which I have seen asked on Live Chat. It is a training which I would have found very useful when I was first trying to build my first website.

I am going to show you how to do this step by step.

This method can be used to install any Wordpress plugin.

For the purposes of this training I will show you how to install Pretty Link.

Pretty Link is a plugin which I find invaluable. It can be used to shorten any link, which is always useful when you are trying to share your links, on Social Media for example, and it does exactly what it says - it makes a long link much prettier!!

So here goes........

Coming next:

How and where to find the Plugin you want.

This is great, Chrissie, and you are so right.
Sometimes, when we start, there is an info loophole, where those answers we found the hard way, could have been so easy if they were to be found.
That's the great thing here, many people, like yourself, are filling these loopholes.....:-))

Hey Chrissies,

This was really great.

I do have a question… how do I find out about plugins in the first place to know if I want to install them or not?
In other words, is there like a training out there that will suggest plugins that everyone should have… or something like that?

As I said up above, the training was great, thank you!
Sincerely,
Shlomo J

Many thanks Schlomo.
Kyle definitely mentions plugins in the training, so everyone who is following the training through should at least know of their existence! Good point though :)

Do you know where in the training this might be?

Kyle refers to plugins in lesson 5 of he first certification course.
Also, Jay has dome a webinar about plugins: If those are not what you want, you can write "plugins into the question bar and see what else there is.
If these are not what you need, please tell me exactly what you do need :)

Excellent Chrissie! And, I love my Pretty Links!

Why I use it? Well, it creates professional looking affiliate links AND..... there is a quick NoFollow switch embedded in it. So, it helps your SEO!

Cheers!
