Installing foodPress via FTP method:

Install your foodPress plugin using your FTP client by simply unzipping the ‘’ file, and simply place the entire folder into your FTP plugins directory.

PLEASE NOTE: the contents need to be placed into a folder called ‘foodpress‘, do not just throw the individual plugin contents into the plugin directory or your plugin directory will now be a mess. Your plugin directory should look like the below screenshot or similar, depending on other plugin folders you may have already installed.




After adding this folder to your FTP plugins directory, you can visit your WordPress Dashboard, and you will now see the foodPress menu item on the left side navigation. If you do not see it yet, refresh your browser and it should appear.
