Grove City College Student Government Association Book Exchange

Version 3 of the Book Exchange takes selling, searching, and exploring books to a whole new level. This release is a complete rewrite and redesign to the older version 2 of the Exchange. It features a minimalist design and interactive experience designed to immerse the user in a simple, creative software experience designed to work as quickly as they do.

  2. Download the latest installation package, currently 3.0.0
  3. Extract the zip or tar.gz file
  4. Move the folder and its contents to <your WordPress installation>/wp-content/plugins/
  5. Log into your WordPress Management panel with Administrator privileges
  6. Once logged in, click on "Plugins" on the navigation panel to go to the list of available Wordpress plugins

  10. Click on "Settings" > "Permalinks" on the navigation panel

Optional Steps, to Add a Link to the Plugin on the Navigation Bar

  4. Enter "book-exchange" in the text input, and select "OK". It is not necessary to add any content to the page, since the plugin will replace the contents of the page with the Book Exchange home page.
