To use Pro features, you need to install & activate both Content Views and Content Views Pro:
Plugins - Content Views and Content Views Pro

I. Install Content Views

If you already installed the Free version, please skip this step and install the Pro version.

  • In Admin dashboard, click Plugins menu, then click Add New
    WordPress add new plugin
  • Type Content Views plugin in search box, then press Enter
    installf2
  • Content Views will appear as the first result, click Install Now
    installf3
  • You will be taken to the installing page:
    installf4
    please click Activate Plugin.

II. Install Content Views Pro

The Pro version requires the Free version to work. If you have not installed the Free version, please follow the steps above.

  • In Admin dashboard, click Plugins menu, then click Add New
    WordPress add new plugin
  • Click Upload Plugin at near top of the page
    upload-plugin
  • Click Choose File to select the zipped file (in a .zip format)

    pt-content-views-pro-VERSION_NUMBER.zip

    install2
    Then click Install Now.

    For Mac users, if you can’t find the zipped file, please find solution here.
    If you have not downloaded CVPro yet, please download it here.

  • You will be taken to the installing page:
    install3
    please click Activate Plugin.

    It’s done 🙂

    To update CVPro automatically, please put your license key to the text field in Content Views >> Settings page:

Note:

If you have not downloaded Pro plugin, please download it here.

Problem:

If you are using a Mac and you can’t find the zipped file to install, but you see the folder pt-content-views-pro
=> The reason is your Mac’s browser unzipped the zipped file automatically
=> The solution:
+ download Pro package by another browser, you will get the original zipped file
+ or right click on the folder pt-content-views-pro then select “Compress…” to make a new zipped file.

The folder name must be pt-content-views-pro, otherwise CVPro will not able to work.
