How To Start Your Free Trial for FooGallery or FooBox

FooGallery Pro and FooBox Pro both offer a free 7-day trial. This means you can take either one of our Pro plugins for a spin, before you buy them. The Free Trial is obligation-free and you don’t enter your credit card details. If you still like Pro at the end of 7 days, you simply place your order then.

Below we’ve covered the basics about our Free Trial and how to get started.

Why Use the Free Trial

If you’re not 100% sure about whether you should be using FooGallery or FooBox Pro, then the Free Trial is made for you. The aim is to give you a chance to try out the Pro plugins, before you commit to buying.

The Free Trial gives you a chance to try out all the awesome pro features. With FooGallery Pro, you can play around with the hover presets, check out the Thumbnail Filters or see if Infinite Scrolling works for you. You can also try out the exclusive-to-pro features: import videos, load galleries from other sources, and add filters from your media tags or categories.

FooBox Pro comes with great features of it’s own. Add Social Sharing, open html in FooBox or experiment with the lightbox themes and colors.

Whether you’re taking FooGallery or FooBox for a spin, you have a week to try out all the features and see if it’s for you. We recommend using as many features as possible in this time. If you’re running the trial to check on the plugin’s compatibility, put it the test as soon as possible.

When you start your trial, you don’t enter your credit card details, so you won’t be charged or automatically upgraded to Pro at the end of the week. Instead, you’ll get a notification telling you that your free trial is coming to an end. You can then click on this to upgrade, should you want to. If Pro isn’t for you, the plugin will simply revert to the free version and you can carry on as before.

Getting Started

To start your Free Trial for either FooGallery or FooBox Pro, you’ll need to first download the free version. Go to Plugins –> Add New from your WP Admin. Search for FooGallery (or FooBox). Press Activate and then Install Now. Your free version of the plugin will now be active.

Install and Activate FooGallery

Once you’ve activated the plugin, you should be automatically redirected to the starting page for FooGallery or FooBox. Alternatively, if you already have the plugin installed, you can navigate there from your menu. You can either go to the Help page for FooGallery or the Getting Started page for FooBox.

For both plugins, you’ll see a Getting Started tab (on which the page will open), and next to it, the Free Trial tab. Click on this tab.

You will now be able to download the Pro version of the selected plugin. Once you have downloaded the .zip file, go to Plugins –> Add New and click on Upload Plugin. Upload the .zip file, activate and install.

Once installed, you’ll have access to all the Pro features for FooGallery or FooBox. You can use these features for 7 days. At the end of this week, you’ll be given the option to upgrade to Pro. If you want to upgrade, click on the notification you receive and follow the steps. If Pro isn’t for you, no problem. The free version of the plugin will still be working.

Note: If you’ve already used the Free Trial on a website, you’ll no longer have this option. Instead you’ll be given the option to Upgrade to Pro.
