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

Why I can’t get some of the URL variables?

WordPress has a set of reserved GET variables that is used for page querying. For example, ‘name’ or ‘page_id’ or ‘id’ can’t be used without having some unexpected results.

Array variables are not showing up.

Verify that you wrap your the variable settings within a double quote (“), or else it won’t work.
