This is a single step in the larger process of adding a domain to Bot Badger. If you didn't come here from that process, we suggest you start here.

Important Note: You must uninstall Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics directly from your site before you install Bot Badger or you risk double-counting sessions and Bot Badger will do nothing to block bots.

From the Wordpress tab of the domain configuration screen in Bot Badger, click the orange [Download Plugin to Install] button to download the plugin to your computer.

Open your Wordpress dashboard (as a remind, you just have to put /wp-admin after your website domain in the address bar. For example,

Under "Plugins" in the left-hand menu, select "Add New"
Add New Plugin from Left Nav

Next to the "Add Plugin" heading click the [Upload Plugin] button
![click the Upload Plugin] button

Select the .zip file you downloaded from Bot Badger (1) and click the [Install Now] button (2) to upload and install the plugin.

Click the [Activate] button to activate the plugin.
