Please be gentle - have literally NO idea what I'm doing but managed to buy a domain name, pay a hostgator fee and access WordPress all in one day - go me.
Now I need to upload an 'under construction' banner for the site as I didn't intend it to be live just yet, but the plug-ins I download are trying to open in strange programs that don't seem to work on my Mac.
What do I need to be able to run WordPress - is there an installation 'thing' I am missing? Have I overlooked something, or is it a case of me buying a program to make it all work.
Please use v.e.r.y. simple language, I am uber-new.
