Installation on WordPress

Preparations

  • Download the latest installer from our site from the download area.
  • If you installed the Lite version previously, then you have to delete it! (You can do this via the WordPress plugin manager or you can overwrite it via FTP.)

After the activation you should see two plugins the Nextend and the Nextend Accordion Menu:

Alternative installation

You can install the Accordion Menu by unzipping the accordionmenu-wordpress-9.x.x.zip into your computer, and copy the unzipped nextend-accordion-menu folder into your website’s wp-content\plugins\ folder. After this you will see it in your Plugins list, and all you have to do is to activate it.

Sometimes you have to install the Nextend framework separately. In this case you will receive an error message, that you should unzip the nextend-accordion-menu\nextend\nextend.zip, which you can find inside the accordionmenu-wordpress-9.x.x.zip, and upload that into the wp-content\plugins\ folder, then activate that too.

Reinstallation of the Pro version

You should go to your website's FTP and if these folders are existing, delete them:
\wp-content\plugins\nextend-accordion-menu\
\wp-content\plugins\nextend\ 

Don't worry, your menus will stay!

Then download the installer from our website to have the accordionmenu-wordpress-PRO-X.zip file on your computer. You should unzip it, so you will have this folder: 
\nextend-accordion-menu\ 

Upload it to your website's FTP:
\wp-content\plugins\nextend-accordion-menu\ 

Inside the \nextend-accordion-menu\ folder you will find a zip file:
\nextend-accordion-menu\nextend\nextend.zip

unzip it into your computer to have this folder:
\nextend\

and upload it to your FTP:
\wp-content\plugins\nextend\

Then go to your /wp-admin page, to your Plugins list and activate the Nextend and the Nextend Accordion Menu plugins. Like this everything should be fine!

Reinstallation of the Free version
