Please do not redirect me to a link. I am a novice to wordpress and do feel silly asking questions that people assume you would know the answer.
i managed to install and events calendar and it had what is called a shortcode which you can embed into your pages...i understand this completely.
The problem on a very basic level in plugins is 1. i install plugins 2. modify plugin category settings etc, once i am happy with this i save it.
3.what next???i think i was assuming i would get a shotcode to put into page or a new page would be generated with the plugin inside.
i see that with all plugins you get the files...readme/php etc.....is it a metter of pasting one of these in the page.
ok please if you have time answer me step by step and not put a referral link. all the other help pages omit this. many thanks
