Starting off, I’m a newbie. So I’ve looked over 6-7 tutorials on getting started with wordpress, eventually found that I had to activate the theme in something called the admin panel that I reach by typing in mysite /wp-admin
Problem – when I type this in, I end up with some odd, generic go daddy page.
Here’s the steps I’ve taken:
Upload via ftp:
Unzip the theme.zip file to any folder on your hard drive.
Upload the theme folder to the server (to the /wp-content/themes/ directory) using the Java uploader
I used this tutorial http://info.template-help.com/help/files/wordpress/theme_manual_installation.htm
So are there any tips or help anyone can point me to so that I can actually log on and start using the wordpress awesomeness, instead of just ….floundering about.
