Being a complete novice means the fun starts to fade.....
I have installed a plugin, here are the installation instructions which I have followed and activated in my plugin directory.
Download the above file and uncompress
Upload dd-multi-col-cats.php to your plugins directory
Upload dd-multi-col-cats.css to your theme directory
Activate the plugin from the WordPress admin panel
Configure the options under the admin panel: Options - DDMultiColCats
To use this plugin, simply add the following trigger text to a post or page:
<!-- multicolcats -->
this is from Dagon Design.
Anyway, I have no idea how to get it to work, it is activated in my plugin directory so I am assuming it has installed proporly.
I saved the code into a page and I see this:
Anti Aging Categories
Best Foods To Eat
Is the page to be just saved or plublished?
I have uninstalled and installed twice just in case something did not install proporly but the same thing has happened.
Really appreciate someone's help, I am having the most trouble and I have asked for paid help at wp-pro and have had no reply, I even asked for the services of the people from where I downloaded the plugin from as they offer their services and have heard nothing there either.
Am I doomed to forever spend my days in the forum asking for help, yet never able to give it.
