Frequently Asked Questions

How to activate my license?

Yesss, you bought WPScreens Pro! Thanx for that.
You can activate you license in the Wordpress backend. Go to Setting; WPScreens. Add your licence-key and from now on all pro-features are available in the WPScreens plugin.

Go to Settings (of Wordpress backend); Permalinks; click on 'save changes' button
Can I cast my slider using my mobile device?

Absolutely! You can cast from your (android) phone or (apple or android) tablet.

Why doesn’t WPScreens come with a own slider?

Using WPScreens means you use the best sliders on the market. The self-developed sliders other narrowcasting systems use really don’t match the quality of these top sliders. Each individual slider also has its own advantages. Download a free or a paid-for slider offering the functions you require. With WPScreens you’ll have a competitively priced narrowcasting system that suits your requirements best.

What size of screen do I need?

Any size of screen will suffice, even the one you have! Portrait or landscape, no problem.
