A friendly hello.
I am VERY new to WP and would like VERY MUCH to install this fantastic-looking plugin. Unfortunately, the instructions that come with it highly recommend that one first install the plugin called "WordPress Plugin Manager." I have tried that for two days now, to no avail. I keep getting an error message (posted elsewhere).
The Headline Images plugin instructions refer to a second installation method:
"Download the tarball and install it by placing the tarball in your WP installation's wp-content directory and performing a tar xvzf headline-image.tar.gz"
I have no idea how to do that, so my question is:
Is there any way to install the plugin 'Headline Images' by simply placing a .php file into my 'plugins' directory, and then activating the plugin in my admin area, as I have done for all the other plugins I've installed? If YES, where can I get the .php file?
Thanks much for your assistance.
