How to Install Affiliate Booster Theme and Activate License Key
In this article, we are going to show you how to install the AffiliateBooster Theme and Plugin on your website. Please note that the AffiliateBooster Theme and Plugin are separate products, and it is not mandatory to use them together. You can use the theme for its flexible options, and the plugin for the high-converting options.
With that information out of the way, let us get to the steps you need to follow to install the theme and plugin.
Download the Theme and Plugin Files
The first step we need to take is to download the theme and plugin files. For that, you will need to go to head over to AffiliateBooster.com. There, you will need to log into your account to access the files. To do that, click the Login button on the top right.
You will see a login form on the screen. Enter your credentials there, and click the Log In button to log in.
If you don’t have Your Password, Follow These Steps
If you did not create an account while purchasing the theme and plugin, but instead only entered your email, then you won’t have a password to log in. In that case, click the Lost your password link.
On the screen that appears, enter the email that you used to purchase the theme and plugin, and click the Get New Password button.
If you entered your email correctly, then you should see this confirmation on the screen.
Next, check your email. You should have received a password reset link from AffiliateBooster in your email, which would look something like this. Click the link in the email to reset your password.
On the form, enter a new password that you would like to use for your account, and click the Reset Password button.
Once you do it, you will have successfully reset your account’s password. Now you can log into your account again using the steps we mentioned in the above article. Here is a quick reminder.
After these steps, you should already be inside your account. If not, click the Your Account link on the top right.
You will reach your account inside AffiliateBooster, and you will see multiple tabs. Click the Download tab to access the theme and plugin download.
Under the download tab, you will find the links to download the AffiliateBooster Theme and Plugin. The links will be for the latest version so that the file names might change over time. Click the links to download the files to your computer.
Once downloaded, place the files in a folder that you can remember.
Installing the Theme and Plugin on Your Website
Now that you’ve downloaded the theme and plugin, you need to install them on your website. We will start with the theme first, then install the plugin.
Installing the AffiliateBooster Theme
First, log into the Admin area of your website. Then navigate to Appearance > Themes.
On the next page, click the Add New button.
On the next page, click the Upload Theme button.
The area will expand, and you should have some additional options. Click the Choose File button.
The File Explorer for your operating system will open up. Navigate to the folder where you placed the theme files, and choose the theme to be uploaded. Make sure to select the theme file, not the plugin file, else you will see errors.
Click the theme installation to start the installation process.
The theme will start installing, and you should see a screen similar to this. The process may take some time, so be patient. Once the process is complete, click the Activate button.
You will be taken to the themes page on your website, and you should see the AffiliateBooster theme alongside a success message.
Congratulations, you have successfully installed the AffiliateBooster theme on your website.
An Additional Important Step You Need to Take
To take full advantage of the AB theme’s capabilities, there is an additional step that you need to take. Head over to Appearance > Customize
You will reach WordPress’s customizer, where you will see a message like this.
Yes, you will need to install the Kirki Plugin if you want to enjoy the amazing flexibility of this theme. Kirki is a free plugin available on the WordPress repository and being on the repository means that it follows strict standards for security. Therefore, it is completely safe to install the plugin. Click the Install Now button to start the installation process.
The Kirki plugin will start installing just like any other plugin. Once the installation is complete, click the Activate Plugin button to activate the plugin.
Activating the License for the Theme
Once the theme is installed and activated, you will need to activate the theme as the last step. Let us show you how to do it.
Benefits of Activating the Theme
We highly recommend that you activate the theme and plugin immediately after purchase. That is because we can provide updates, bug fixes, and support, only if your theme is activated. If you do not activate your theme, you will lose all these benefits, even if you have a valid license.
Activating the License of the Theme
The first step we need to take is to find our license key. Obviously, the license key is present inside your AffiliateBooster account. So head over to Affiliatebooster.com and head to your account by clicking the Your Account link. If you are not logged in, log in first.
Inside your account, head over to the License Keys tab.
Here you will find license keys of all your purchases. Copy the license key next to the AffiliateBooster theme.
Next, head over to your website’s admin area and navigate to Appearance > Theme License.
Paste your license key in the License Key section and click the Save Changes button.
Your license will be checked, and you will see your website’s name next to the license status field. Click the Activate License button to activate the AffiliateBooster theme.
Your license will be activated. You can now click the Save Changes button and proceed with your work.
