Installing the Professional Edition

Step 1: Check E-mail or Log into Your Draw Attention Account

Check your email for your Draw Attention Pro license and zip file. This email should have been sent out promptly after the initial purchase of the plugin.

If you can’t find the email with the zip file included, please feel free to login to your Draw Attention account here on this site. You’ll be able to download the zip file under the Downloads tab.

Account Login

Sometimes, you may find that the zip file will automatically unzip due to browser or OS settings. To address this, right-click on the folder and re-zip or compress it. This will create a zip file that you can upload to your WordPress site.

Step 2: Installation

If you have the free version of Draw Attention installed, feel free to overwrite it with the Professional edition of Draw Attention. You don’t need to deactivate and delete the basic/free edition before uploading your new zip file.

You may see a warning about potentially losing data, but your images and hotspots will not be lost.

Navigate to your WordPress dashboard, under Plugins > Add New. Then choose the Upload Plugin button (towards the top left), and upload the entire zip file itself.

Once installed, just click the link to Activate it in the list of plugins.
