Find out here how to get, install and use the NiftyGridZPro plugin for self-hosted WordPress sites.
To give you a chance to have a play, here’s a fully finctional, license-free version. The only difference from the licensed versions is that it uses our referral id, so you’ll probably want to stick to designs from your own store to begin with. That way you’ll get royalties on any arising sales.
Installation is straightforward with these WordPress Control Panel skills:
- able to upload a zip file to your plugins folder
- able to unzip the file into it (which creates the plugin)
- able to activate the new plugin
As long as you can do those things (or click around until you can) everything’s really easy – especially with the screenshots to explain the steps below.
Step 1 Navigate to your plugins folder

Step5 Make your first NiftyGridZPro grid!
Here’s a straightforward one to try. Just make sure you change the store name and search term to yours:
For a post:
niftygridzpro store_or_collection="hightonridley" search_term="motivating"]
If you want visitors to search, use this on a page:
niftygridzpro store_or_collection="hightonridley" search_term="motivating" allow_visitor_search=1]
That was Easy!
Ok, now over to you. Enjoy how easy it is now to make fully featured product grids on your blog.
Next up: Shortcode helper page….
This helper page (on our sister site) is an easy way to set all your NiftyGridZ options and save them for next time. This is what it looks like:
You can use it here – and, what’s cool, you can save your settings via its bookmark link labelled My Shortcode Settings.
