How To Start Your Free Trial for FooPlugins

FooGallery Pro, FooBox Pro, and FooBar PRO all offer a free 7-day trial. This means you can take any 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 the premium version for any of our plugins, 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. Note that you can make use of the free trial for any of the FooGallery PRO Plans.

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

With FooBar PRO, you can play around with color customizations, while making Countdown and Sign Up bars. Don’t forget to see how scheduling works, and experiment with the conditional visibility.

Whether you’re taking FooGallery, FooBox, or FooBar 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 to 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, you’ll need to first download the free version of the plugin. Go to Plugins -> Add New from your WP Admin. Search for FooGallery (or FooBox or FooBar). 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. Then go to the Help or Getting Started page. Here you’ll see a Free Trial or PRO Features tab. Click on this.

You’ll now see the option to begin your trial. As it explains, you’ll be able to try out all of the Pro features for 7 days. The trial is obligation-free and you do not need to enter any credit card details. To begin, simply click on the Start Your 7-day Free Trial button.

Start free trial

You’ll be redirected to a pricing page. Click on the Start Free Trial button under the Personal plan option. A popup will appear asking you to opt-in to sending Freemius (our licensing provider) non-sensitive information so that you are kept informed about updates. Click on the Approve & Start Trial button.

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, FooBar 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.
