  1. Extract in the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

I have activated the plugin but nothing appears…

Make sure you have the following code in your theme’s footer.php :

If not, go to Design >> Theme Editor >> Select “footer.php” from right hand list >> and paste <?php wp_footer(); ?> just before the ” tag.
