Before beginning the installation and configuring of the plugin, you must first have WordPress already installed on a server. Once you have setup a copy of WordPress, there are two ways you can go about installing the plugin:
FTP Upload: Unzip the download and upload the plugin directory /awsm-team-pro/ into your WordPress plugins directory /wp-content/plugins/
WordPress Upload: This is definitely the easiest route for most. Simply navigate to Plugins› Add New Plugin› Upload. Click the "browse" button and locate the still zipped plugin folder. The plugin will be uploaded and installed in a matter of seconds.
B. Creating Team Member Profiles
As soon as you have installed the plugin, the 'AWSM Team' menu will show up in your WordPress admin sidebar! To start off, you have to add a few member profiles.
C.1. Creating Teams
Just like the member page, it's pretty self-descriptive. Pick members for your team, choose preset and styles, hit publish and copy-paste the shortcode where you want it to display. That's all!
The plugin comes with a sleek 'Filters' option that let you categorize and filter team members.
Step 1: Add some filters from the 'Filters' page under AWSM Team
Step 2: Enable filter option in your Team and select the filters you want to display with your team.
