  6. After installation, you'll automatically be taken to a page that tells you the plugin has been successfully installed. There will be two links: Activate Now and Return to Plugin Installer. Click Activate Now.

NOTE: As soon as you activate the plugin, it'll replace the default Thesis Theme header with one default blue widget area. Inside the widget area, you'll see the following text: Left Area Header Widgets. Add widgets here from your WP Dashboard just like normal. The activated plugin will also automatically create an additional side bar called Left Header Area Widgets. You can see this on the Widgets page, accessible under the Appearance Menu of your WordPress Dashboard. If you're not ready to customize your headers, go back to the Plugins page, navigate to the plugin, and click Deactivate.
