The in the WordPress dashboard, go to “Plugins” then “Add New” then “Upload Plugin” and upload the plugin’s zip file.

Once the plugin has been uploaded and activated, add the following code into your theme where you want it to be shown.

if (function_exists('jm_breaking_news')) {

The banner has a width of 100%, so it will fit into any size container; however, the best use for the banner is to have it in the header.
