Once you've received your API token, you can install the Review Stream plugin directly within the Wordpress dashboard by clicking Plugins > Add New.
You can either search the plugin directory for "Review Stream" or download the plugin directly, save the .zip file to your computer, and choose the Upload Plugin option.
If you're uploading the plugin, select the .zip file you've just downloaded, then click Install Now.
On the Installed Plugins page, find your Review Stream plugin and click Settings.
Select your entity and the schema you'd like to use for rich-snippet markup, or No Schema to turn off schema markup entirely.
