Adding 3rd Party Content

Whilst the IPS4 product provides most of the functionality that you will need, there may be niche items that you would like to add to your site. Our marketplace contains many 3rd party plugins and applications that you can install on your site to add functionality.

Applications will generally add new areas to your site, while plugins will tend more to add to existing areas on your site.

Warning

3rd Party applications and plugins are not supported by IPS and are used at your own risk.

 

Marketplace ACP

Starting on version 4.5, we introduced the marketplace are within the AdminCP. This allows you to install 3rd party applications from our marketplace, without the need to download and manually install them.

This is the recommended method in which to install 3rd party items, as all marketplace items have been reviewed by the IPS team. You can find this under the marketplace icon in your AdminCP.

3rd Party Installation

Uploading Manually

There may be times you are required to upload an item manually to your system. This may be because the 3rd party item has come from a source external to the marketplace, or that the author has asked for you to do so for some reason. While we recommend using the marketplace if possible, below are the instructions on how to do this.

 

Applications

To add a 3rd party application you have downloded, you will need to visit "System>Site Features>Applications" in your admin CP. From here you will be able to select the install button to install a new application.
