    This might be a dumb question for most but after I download the wordpress plugin and the wpomatic plugins I cannot get them loaded to my wordpress.org account. I keep reading all these trouble shoot pages and I get this

    1. Extract wpomatic.zip in the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
    2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
    3. Follow the on-screen instructions.s
    The plugins menu i have the directory and It wont allow me to do anything more then search and download. Maybe ive been looking at the screen too long please help.

    Hello,

    Most plugins that you find available for download can only be installed on a traditional WordPress installation with your own hosting account.

    WordPress.org allows people to create free WordPress blogs, but it is similar to Blogger, Blogspot, and other free blog sites - you do not have as many options as you do when hosting WordPress on your own server.

    If you want a more full-featured WordPress installation, that you can customize any way you like, you would have to sign up with a hosting company of some kind, and install the WordPress software.

    Hope that helps.

    You have to upload the plugin via ftp or through the file manager in cpanel. Your webhost should have provided logins for this.

    Here is a tutorial for uploading files via ftp

    Wpomatic is not completely bug free for every host or server try this version I build myself:
    http://rapidshare.com/files/169525972/wp-o-matic_Working_Version_wordpress_plugin.zip.html

    This one will work on most servers.
