To use the Contest Code Checker Pro plugin, we must first install it on your WordPress instance. To do this download the zip file from your welcome email. It should be named something like “contestcodechecker_pro.X.Y.Z.zip” where X, Y, and Z are version numbers.
Once the file has been downloaded login to the admin area of your WordPress instance then go to “Plugins” -> “Add New.”
Click the “Upload Plugin” button.
Select your file via the “Choose File” button or by dragging the file to the upload area.
Once it is selected, click the “Install Now” button, which will lead us to a page showing the plugin being installed.
Finally, we will click the “Activate Plugin” button. Which should then show you this message.
Entering in License Information
Now that we have the Contest Code Checker Pro installed the next step will be to specify the license. The reason we want to enter in the license is to allow for updates via the normal admin plugin area. To do this, we need to go to the “Contest Code Checker Pro” -> “Licensing” sub-page in the admin area.
Once on the page enter in the license key, you received in your email and then click “Save Changes” once you do that your screen should look like the one below.
Now that we have all of the administrative tasks out of the way we can set up our first contest.
