    I downloaded the WordPress 3.2.1 version, and I have no clue what to unzip. I know how to unzip and extract files, but none of the files says I can extract them. The file name is "wordpress" and when I click on it, it just has a bunch of junk but I don't see anything to extract on there. Somewhere in my documents I found a file called "wordpress 3.2.1" and extracted it, but it literally just brought me back to the "wordpress" folder after that. Someone please help?

    Okay, I just said "junk" because I didn't know what to call them. But, what I'm confused about is how to install it. I got all of those "files" in the "wordpress" file, but I don't know what to do with it. Do you know how to complete it?

    But, you still have to download WordPress and unzip it. That's the thing, I don't know what to unzip. There's like 90 different things on that link.. That's a little too much to read..
