How to Activate and Install Elementor Pro in WordPress?

With your Elementor Pro plugin purchased, it’s time to install it on your WordPress site. Here’s how:

Step 1: Install and Activate Elementor (Free)

Before we dive into Elementor Pro, you need to have the free version of Elementor installed. Here’s how to do it:

  1. From your WordPress Dashboard, navigate to “Plugins” and select “Add New.”
  2. In the search field, type “Elementor” and choose “Elementor Website Builder” to install the plugin.
  3. Once the installation is complete, click “Activate.”

Step 2: Download the Elementor Pro Plugin File

Now, let’s get Elementor Pro up and running. Follow these steps:

  1. After purchasing Elementor Pro, head over to your “My Elementor” dashboard.
  2. Log in using the credentials you received via email after your purchase.
  3. Once logged in, you’ll reach your Profile page. Look for the “Download Plugin” button in the upper corner and click it to download the .zip file to your desktop.

Step 3: Upload the Elementor Plugin File to WordPress

With the Elementor Pro plugin file ready, let’s upload it to your WordPress site:

  1. Access your site’s WordPress dashboard and select “Plugins>Add New.”
  2. Choose the zip file you downloaded in the previous step. Click “Install” and then “Activate.”
  3. Upon activation, you should receive a message at the top of your site’s dashboard, prompting you to activate your license key.

Note: If you encounter an error message stating that you are missing the “style.css” stylesheet, it means you’ve attempted to install Elementor Pro as a theme rather than a plugin. Remember, Elementor Pro is a plugin, not a theme. Ensure you install it as a plugin only.

Step 4: Activate Your License

Now that Elementor Pro is installed, it’s time to activate your license for access to automatic updates. Follow these final steps:

  1. From your WordPress Dashboard, go to “Elementor >License.”
  2. Click “Connect & Activate.”
  3. You’ll be redirected to log in to your Elementor account. Click “Connect.”
  4. After logging in, your license will be activated automatically.
  5. If the license key was installed correctly, any messages on the top of your dashboard should disappear.

Note: If you encounter an “Invalid redirect URI,” or a similar “Error Occurred” message during activation, go to “Settings” > “General” and ensure that both the “WordPress Address (URL)” and “Site Address (URL)” match exactly. Mismatched URLs can trigger this error.
