Installing the Required WordPress Plugins

Part of Documentation

You got WordPress installed, did the first configuration tasks, and installed the UUA theme. The next step is to install the plugins that come with the Theme.

Note: The plugins that are required by the theme depend on the version of the theme you are installing. Early versions of the theme required plugins that have not been maintained, so we have updated the theme to work with better plugins. Refer to the current list of required plugins.

  1. Install the required plugins. Your screen, just after installation, looks like it does below (click the image to see a larger version). The Dashboard lists options down the left side of the page. Click “Begin Installing Plugins.”
