Really basic question on blugins (6 posts)

    Real beginner here - sorry!

    I have installed WP fine, understand most of it and have successfully downloaded, activated and even configured several plugins.

    My problem is that I dont see how I can make the plug in visable (usable!) from my WP web site - Do I add it to a page, do I add it to a menu, if so I cannot see any way to do this - This must be so obvious but it has me stumped!

    Thanks in advance!

    What plugin are you talking about? Any more detail will help.

    It is any plugin that I download - but examples are:

    WorldWeather Pro
    Event Organiser
    Events Manager

    The only clue I have is installing the plugin called "WP Wunderground 1.2.5" - This has a useful help page that tells me to access the plugin I have to add the syntax [forecast] to my post or page - WHich makes sense (but I have no idea how to find this syntax for the other plugins!) - But even adding [forecast] does not display anything.

    I must be being really dumb!

    Check the documentation for each plugin. The exact usage varies.

    OK thanks - Just thought that there may be a default way of calling the plugins.

    OK - here is a good example - If I download, install and activate World Weather Pro - It installs fine and shows as active. But if I check the docs all they say are:

    (Which gives me no clue how to access / view / display this plugin !!!)
