Leaves are WordPress plugins just like SiteTree, each one with its own identity. The only singularity about Leaves is that they cannot go very far on their own, they necessarily need SiteTree to carry out their tasks.
To start using your Leaf you have to go only through two swift steps: installation and activation.
Your Leaf can be downloaded directly from the personal link you find in your purchase receipt received via email. But at any time, and as long as your Licence Key will be valid, you will be able to access to the Leaf's bundle also from your account.
Installation and Activation
The installation process for Leaves is the same as that of any other plugin not hosted on WordPress.org:
- Go to
Plugins -> Add New
- Click on 'Upload Plugin', near the title of the screen.
- Click on 'Choose file' to locate and select the
.ziparchive for your Leaf.
- Click on 'Install Now'.
The Leaf is installed. Now you just have to activate it from the 'Plugins' screen.
Activation of Your Licence Key
Leaves don't require any lengthy setup to start working, in fact this step is optional. But in order to be able to check for updates, your Leaf needs to know about and activate your Licence Key.
To activate your Licence Key you have to go to
SiteTree -> Leaves, and submit the form corresponding to your Leaf.
