    I just bought a plan with HostGator and installed WP , trying to upload some plugins , but I am really not good at this , asked support and seems they do not know anything about it either or just felt like sending me here was easier . But anyway somebody with a HostGator plan can you give me step-by-step how to upload plugins, please ?

    I think I just found it :) . For everybody else that is new like I am here is what I did :

    > File Manager
    > www Folder (click on the folder icon )
    > wp-content (again, click on the folder icon )
    > plugins ( click the folder again )
    > upload file ( you have to download the file previously on your desktop )

    It now it should show up ( the plugin that you uploaded) in your Wordpess admin / plugins > now you can activate it

    I know most of the people knew how to do this but there is got to be people like myselft out there who has not much clue , this can hopefully help.

    your plugins go there, so once you have ftp'd into your site, locate the directory blog, from there go to wp-content, from there go to plugins.

    you already have plugins in there.

    Assuming the site in your profile is the one you are asking about.

    It is actually a new site that I am trying to set up , since the site you mentioned above is with Yahoo , and they have some of the plugins already installed , but I am just tired of them ( expensive + not good experience with them )
