- Install commercial themes and plugins easily from within the WordPress admin
- Get theme and plugin upgrades automatically
- Check the compatibility of new themes and plugins with those you’re currently running
In a nutshell, Installer allows WordPress to download plugins from commercial sources. This means that themes and plugins that you purchase from companies that use Installer, will appear in your WordPress admin. You can install and upgrade quickly and easily, without wasting time uploading files manually.
Find and Install Themes and Plugins
Using Installer, you have access to various other alternative repositories in order to install and update, themes and plugins. On top of that you have access to premium type extensions which you can purchase with one click and install on your WordPress Setup.
Installer takes care of everything, including the purchase process, the installation and the necessary updates.
You can add Repositories from the Repositories Admin Page, or alternatively you can rely on the default repositories list which are updated periodically. Each repository can be enabled or disabled to fit your particular needs.
See What’s Compatible With Installed Theme and Plugins
Installer can provide information about the compatibility of plugins and themes with other plugins and themes using information from our Compatibility Server. You will see a link under each extension which opens a window with information about the compatibility status of specific extension to all others already installed on your system.
For connection information to various software sources, please ask for support in the plugin / theme vendors sites.
