    "upload a plugin to your WordPress plugin directory" I keep on seeing that and I don't know what it means. He do you do this. Can somebody please Help me. I am getting very stressed out because of this. Thank You!

    Your plugin-directory is /wp-content/plugins/... you'll find it in your wordpress installation directory. Plugins usually consist just of one .php file, which has to be copied to that directory and will then appear in your wordpress admin panel under "Plugins" where you can activate them.

    And next time, plz don't start more than one thread for one question, and don't use unspecific titles like this, as both is unnecessary and considered bad manners. ;)

    Your plugins folder is located within your "blog" folder.

    If you look in your local files, it's probably here:
    yourblogsitefolder-->blog-->wp-content-->plugins

    So, once you've downloaded a plug-in folder you want to add, you'll just drag that folder directly into your plugins folder, as outlined above. (If it's a zipped folder, be sure to first extract the contents, then drag the extracted folder... i.e. do not drag the zipped folder into your directory.)

    The path would then look like:
    blog-->wp-content-->plugins-->"yourpluginfolderhere"

    Once that's done, you'll need to ftp it to your remote host server.

    Next, go to your WordPress dashboard, and the plugin should show up under the Plugins tab. Click the "Activate" tab that appears next to it.

    Hope this helps!
