Installing Login With AJAX

Login With AJAX is a free plugin available on, you can install it directly form your WordPress site, or download it and upload it to your site manually. Below are the various ways of installing the plugin, as you would any WordPress plugin.

Remember to back up your database before updating and installing, as you should for any other plugins, themes or even WordPress itself!

Automatic Install via WordPress (Recommended)

  1. Go to your admin page and go to Plugins > Add New
  2. Search for ‘login with ajax’
  3. Find Login With AJAX and click install
  4. Add your FTP details if requested and let the plugin install
  5. Activate it from the installation page or your Plugins page

Adding via Zip file

  1. Download Login With AJAX
  2. Go to Plugins > Add New in your admin area
  3. Click Upload
  4. Choose the zip file you just uploaded and click Install Now
  5. Add your FTP details if required, install
  6. Activate it from the installation page or your Plugins page

Uploading via FTP

  1. Download Login With AJAX
  2. Connect to your blog via FTP
  3. Extract the zip file you downloaded, and upload the login-with-ajax folder to your wp-content/plugins folder
  4. Visit your Plugins page in the admin area.
  5. Activate the plugin

Installing Pro

Login With AJAX Pro is a regular WordPress plugin, so you'd install it the same way you would manually install any WordPress plugin.

  1. Ensure Login With AJAX is installed and is activated.
  2. Download Login With AJAX Pro
  3. Upload the plugin via the dashboard or via FTP as any regular WordPress plugin.

Activating your Pro license key

Once installed for the first time, you will be asked to activate your Pro installation to make Pro features available. This step is required whether or not you still have access to pro updates and support.

You will see an admin notice asking you to activate your plugin license. Click on this and you will be redirected to our site, where you will need to log in (if not already logged in) and confirm the activation of a license on your site.

You can also view and manage your license keys from within your WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Login With AJAX > Licenses tab or from our account licenses page.


The best way to update is via the WordPress automatic updater. It will automatically inform you of new updates and will install them for you after confirmation.

Our premium add-on updates will also automatically become available via the updater if you have an active license.

However, if this isn’t possible, you can do it the same way as adding via zip file. Bear in mind that you should deactivate and delete the plugin before replacing it with the new one.  No settings are deleted in this process. Once uploaded reactivate and the update should happen in the background.
