    I know this may be a beyond basic question but I need help! I have a plug in that I would like to use, only I can't figure out how to upload it to the /wp-content/plugins folder. Is this folder in my WordPress admin area, or should I be looking in the cpanel of my website? Any tips are appreciated!

    This is what you do.

    Step One: Connect to your website using your favorite FTP access program. (example: Filezilla)(reason: the cpanel doesn't doesn't allow you to upload a whole directory, just individual files)

    Step Two: Navigate to the directory where you installed wordpress. (example: www/mysite.com/wordpress/ or www/mysite.com/)

    Step Three: Now look for the folder named "wp-content", and click on it.

    Step Four: Click on the folder named "plugins".

    Step Five: Now that you are in the plugins folder, drag and drop the plug in. ---Important--- If the plugin is more that one file, drag the folder where the plugin is located. (example: bling.php, bling_config.php are located in the "bling" folder, drag and drop the "bling" folder into the plugins directory, so the plugin will work.

    That's it.

    anything else?
