Hi all, sorry if this is a commonly posted newbie question, but I couldn't find a Sticky FAQ on installing plugins and a search turned up nothing. I'm confused about installing basic plugins. I understand that I download the plugin to my PC, extract it, and then I need to use an FTP client to place the files in my /wp-content/plugins/ directory online.
But all the FTP clients I know - including the one at WordPress.com - will upload only single files, not folders. How am I supposed to upload the folder contents of these downloaded plugins and then upload it all, keeping the file structure intact, to /wp-content/plugins/? I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, but I have no idea what. Thanks in advance for your patience and assistance. - Patrick
