Help! How Can I Stop The Installation File From Auto-Unzipping?

When using Safari on a Mac, the browser may automatically extract that zip file that i needed for installation of the plugin. You’ll know this happened because you’ll see a regular folder in place of a zip file.

If possible, try downloading the file with a different browser, such as Firefox or Chrome.

Alternatively, you can disable the auto-unzip in the Safari preferences:

Safari -> Preferences -> General, then uncheck the “Open safe files” option.

Now, please re-download the file and once the download is complete, you will then have the proper format to add into WordPress (‘.zip’ extension).
