Free version

Note that if you upgrade PDA Gold from the free version, please deactivate it before you install this Gold version to avoid conflict in the future. After being deactivated, the free version will be automatically removed when you activate PDA Gold successfully.

Since PDA Gold version 3.2.0, users are required to install our Free version for our Gold plugin to work properly. This installation process will be done automatically for you. In case the automated installation fails, you can install our Free version manually as per this instruction.

  1. Navigate to Plugins > Add New
  2. Search for “Prevent Direct Access Plugin”
  3. Click the “Install Now” button
