  1. Upload all the file in the zip file to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


Does the plugin work with multi site installations?

Yes. The users author slug is changed across the entire network.

What if the slug I entered in is already taken, what happens?

The plugin will automatically check existing user author slugs, and if a slug is already
being used it will append a dash with a number (ex. -2) until a slug is found that isn’t being used.
