Setup Extension Plugins

AppPresser has a suite of WordPress plugins and theme that you install on your WordPress site.

These plugins connect your WordPress site to the app, and allow for special features.  You must install and configure these plugins on your WordPress site before building your app on

Getting Started

The process of developing an app with AppPresser goes like this:

  1. Install AppPresser plugins and theme
  2. Configure settings
  3. Install additional plugins

1. Install AppPresser core plugin and theme

First, install and activate the  AppPresser core plugin. Login to your WordPress website, go to Plugins->Add New, and search for "AppPresser." Install and activate.

Next, download the AP3 Ion Theme from your purchase receipt email, or from your account page. For AppPresser 4 customers, visit your app dashboard, and click "Account" at the top left. For AppPresser 3 customers, visit

Go to Appearance->Themes->Add New->Upload, and upload the theme .zip file.  Please note that the AppPresser Theme cannot be uploaded as a plugin.

Do not activate the theme, it should stay inactive. The AppPresser core plugin handles switching this to the active theme for the mobile app using the app-only theme setting.

2. Configure Plugin Settings

Next, visit the AppPresser settings menu to configure your app.

Here you need to add your Site Slug and App ID. You can find those by logging into and visiting Your App => General.

Add those settings and save.

3. Extension Plugins

Next, you'll install and activate any extensions. For each extension, download the .zip file from your account page. Login to your WordPress website, go to Plugins->Add New->Upload, and upload the .zip file (do not unzip the file before uploading).

Activate each extension after uploading.

Each extension is used differently, please consult the  documentation for your extension for usage information.

Plugin Blocker

It is highly recommended you install our plugin blocker. This disables conflicting plugins only in the app, which solves a lot of problems you may encounter when developing your app.
