Plugin Installation

Installing the plugin is easy – both the free and the pro-version.

Free version, Way 1:

  1. Search “JSON” at your “Plugin > Add new” page
  2. Click Install at “JSON Content Importer”
  3. Activate Plugin
  4. Done

Free version, Way 2:
For detailed installation instructions, please read the standard installation procedure for WordPress plugins.

  1. Login to your WordPress installation
  2. Install plugin by uploading to /wp-content/plugins/.
  3. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu.
  4. Click on “JSON Content Importer” / “JSON Content Importer PRO” menu entry in the left bar: basic caching-settings and more instructions about usage.
  5. Cache folder: WP_CONTENT_DIR.’/cache/jsoncontentimporter’ (pro-version: “jsoncontentimporterpro”). So “WP_CONTENT_DIR.’/cache/'” must be writable for the webserver / http-daemon. The plugin checks this and might abort the process with an error-message like “dir is missing” or “not writeable”. If so: check permissions of the directories.


    1. Select and buy a licence. There is a yearly renewal needed.
    2. You get an zip-file and a licencekey: Install the zip just like described above “Way 2”
    3. Check the plugin-option-tab “Check installation”: This shows you if your wordpress/php… is ok for the PRO-plugin.
    4. The plugn offers the option “JCI pro licence”: Insert and activate your licencekey there. You can manage your licencekeys at
