Need Help with Wordpress again!

Recommended Posts

I am having a problem figuring out how to work plugins....I have downloaded them but they never show up on my plugin screen so I can activate them...anybody know what I am doing wrong?

 

Also at the bottom of my wordpress blog it shows contact us, terms of use, privacy statement, and trademarks. I have no idea how to go in and makes changes to these areas on wordpress. When I am on my webpage and click on these links it doesn't do anything except bring me to the top of the page that I am on at that time.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Cynthia

If you are uploading them via FTP, that means you get a zipped folder, extract the files, then upload them. You may be missing a step. Inside the extracted folder is a second folder. That is the folder you upload.

 

If you are uploading them directly inside the Wordpress dashboard and they aren't working, there may be a problem with the host not allowing it to upload.

 

Information in the bottom of the blog is usually in the footer.php file.

A plugin process that has worked very well for me is: Download the plugin, saving it to my computer, but do not unzip it. Then, go to the plugin option at the blog and upload the plugin, still zipped. The blog will unzip and install it. But you have to activate it.

 

One point with this process, it will remain at the root of your website and if you use a program like MS Expressions, you will be asked if you want it included everytime you update.

 

Unzipping and importing to your blog files is another process, but I had trouble getting some plugins to work.

O.K. There are two issues here.

 

1. Download, unzip the files, upload the entire unzipped folder to your server via FTP to the "public_html/wp-content/plugins" folder. Then active it through your WP admin panel's plug-in directory.

 

2. To change the footer file, you have to use the theme editor and then choose the "footer.php" file. Go through the code and change the text parts you would like changed. Make sure you include the links to items you wished changed.

 

Hope this helps,

Lisa
