Installation of the plugin full version after the demo version testing

If you have tested the demo version of the plugin and purchased a license, we warn you to delete all old plugin files right before the installation process. You can export your settings into the new plugin. We will describe that in the next articles.

Please note that if you still see an “HTML5 Demo” badge after the installation and activation of the full plugin version, you will need to clear the browser cache:

  • for Windows users: press CTRL + F5 at “Map preview” page in WordPress admin panel;
  • for MacOS users: press Command + R at “Map preview” page in WordPress admin panel.
