If you edit this page, please don’t include the Extension key to your specific product - this is a generalized wiki article pertaining to Extension Keys in general.

Obtain an extension key from Magento Connect

  1. Go to “Magento Connect” and “Magento connect Manager” to find an Extension.
  2. Type your key to “Paste extension key to install:”. Agree to terms and then copy the extension key (paste it someplace so you have it for the next step).

Install the Extension

Once you obtain the Extension Key from Magento Connect, follow the instructions below to install the Extension to your site. Pay special attention to the extension release. For example, if it is Beta you will need to configure your store to accept Beta extensions.

  1. Sign into your Magento store admin panel.
  2. Navigate to System > Magento Connect > Magento Connect Manager.
  3. Paste in the extension key and click “Install”. If you run into any issues, consult the extension’s documentation forum. (Accessible from the extension’s page on Magento Connect.)

If you need to configure your store to accept Beta or other releases.

  1. Sign into your Magento store admin panel.
  2. Navigate to System > Magento Connect > Magento Connect Manager.
  3. Select the “Settings” tab, and choose the “Preferred State”.
  4. Save Settings.
  5. Return to the Extension Tab, paste the extension key and click “Install”
