How to update the plugin?
Download the updated version from your downloads page, you can download the installable us-map.zip file or download the entire item zip file and extract it to get the installable files, then do either:

- Update via WordPress Admin – Deactivate and delete the plugin from your WordPress admin “Plugins” > “Installed Plugins”. Then upload, install and activate the updated plugin us-map.zip file as a new plugin.
Notes about the update:
- The update is mainly to add a new feature and enhance the look of the map, so if you are satisfied with the existing plugin, you don’t have to upgrade.
- If you use v2.2.0 or newer version, your existing customization should be kept after the update.
- Remember, the plugin comes with 3 installable instances, so you can install 2nd instance us-map-ii.zip and test it before you update us-map.zip
- After the update, you may need to clear the cache files (Ctrl+F5) to see the new update.
