 5) ZIP file with Safari 

  •  If you download the Zedity Premium plugin with Safari, by default Safari is set to unzip the downloaded file automatically.
  • The easiest thing to do is to right-click on the “zedity-premium” folder that you find in the “Downloads” folder and then select “Compress“.
  • This recreates the .zip file needed for the installation.
  • Continue the installation as usual (for further info on how to install the Zedity Plugin, you can follow the steps here).

 6) Can’t find the “Z” button?

  • Ensure you have the visual editor enabled in your profile.
  • To review this setting: from the WordPress Dashboard, from the menu on the left choose “People->Your Profile“. At the top of the settings page, “Personal options” section, there is a checkbox “Visual Editor: Disable the visual editor when writing“. This must be unchecked, so that the visual editor is available.

 7) Install plugin error

     “Destination folder already exists”

  • Before updating your Premium plugin to the latest version, ensure that you have deactivated and uninstalled the previous version.
  • You can do so from the WordPress Dashboard, Plugins page.
  • Note: the update procedure will not affect your existing Zedity contents.

 8) Disable “Power by Zedity” watermark.

  • Disable for the current content: from the Zedity Editor select the “Content” tab, “Options” section, click on the big “wrench” button and change the “Watermark” option to “None”.
    Save the content and publish your page/post.

 9) Use Zedity with other user roles.

  • Zedity needs the “unfiltered_html” capability to function properly, that is required to manage the Zedity contents.
  • If you wish to use Zedity with another role (e.g. Author), you must assign the “unfiltered_html” capability to the Author role, or to any other role you wish to use Zedity with.
  • To do that, at the moment there is no default role editor in WordPress, but there are many plugins that permits you to edit user roles.
    You  can check a list of Role Editors plugins in the WordPress plugins repository and choose the one that best suits you.

 10) What happens to Zedity contents when you update the plugin

  • All the contents created with Zedity will remain in its place: they are not deleted or removed or modified in any way.

 11) Video thumbnail

  • If you add videos to a Video Box from the Media Library you can add also a thumbnail.
  • You can select from the Media Library the video file and a picture to be used as a thumbnail.
  • Just hold CTRL while clicking on the files in the Media Library to select multiple files.
