Automatic update

To receive notifications about new versions and to update Pinpoint Booking System using WordPress admin you need to activate the licence.

Manual update

Updating Pinpoint Booking System manually requires FTP familiarity.

  • Step 1 - Go to our shop and Sign in into Licences page.
  • Step 2 - Download the plugin
  • Step 3 - Click Download icon from the right, to download the latest version of the file on your computer.
  • Step 4 - With your FTP program connect to your web server.
  • Step 5 - Go where your WordPress plugins files are, to folder wp-content/plugins.
  • Step 6 - Overwrite the folder dopbsp from the zip file you downloaded (this is why it is important to backup any changes you have made to the plugin files). If you did not make any changes to the plugin files, you are free to overwrite them with the new ones without the risk of losing any plugins settings, and backwards compatibility is guaranteed.
