    I've tried uploading 2 plug-ins to my wp content/plugins folder, and neither of them show up on my plugins page. I just see Akismet and Hello Dolly, which came with my version of WordPress.

    Please help!

    Thanks.

    Many plugins when you download them come in a folder like:
    newplugin.1.2.2
    and inside there is another folder
    newplugin (with a lot of files)
    This latter one is the folder you should upload to your folder!

    the trick is to read and follow the install directions:

    For cforms - contact form:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cforms/installation/

    Upload plugin directory /contactforms/ to the wordpress /wp-content/plugins/ directory

    You can see that isnt what you have done.

    For the netflix plugin:
    http://www.albertbanks.com/wordpress-netflix-plugin/

    Upload the folder (netflix/) to your WordPress plugins directory inside of wp-content.

    Again, You can see that isnt what you have done.

    Thank you both so much for the quick and helpful replies. I'll be more careful when reading directions from now on!
