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, whist 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.

Basics to adding/updating 3rd party 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.

Warning

IPS4 applications are not upgraded in this manor. For information on how to upgrade the IPS4 applications themselves, please see the following guide.
