I have tried numerous times to download plugins to my WordPress site and even though I have followed the "read me" instructions to the letter, ran the install, deleted the install.php file as instructed, the plugin doesn't appear in my list of picks to activate. What could cause this? I am trying to get polls added to my site and wa trying to use Advanced Poll first, but kept getting a database connection error when trying to put it in my template. Then I said forget it and tried to use one of the WordPress-specific plugins. My problem isn't loading the files, it's figuring out how to get them to appear in the plugin list so I can activate them.. Anyone willing to help? If I need to give more info, just let me know.
Thanks for taking the time!
