How does one go about getting plugins to work on their page? I download the plugins and put them in my wp-content\plugins folder, but I am guessing I need to change files somewhere where I am hosting. Is this right? How does one do that? I host through DreamHost if anyone is familiar with them.

Thanks again! (So many questions!)

nope, once they are on that folder you can just activate them from the plugins section of the admin interface.

I worked it all out eventually :) thanks! If there is anyone else who is a total dunce like me, this is how I did it (everyone else can feel free to roll their eyes and say 'Well, DUH!')

- Go waywayway back to the emails I received from my host. One of these contained a seperate password that I would need to use FTP.
- I used FileZilla for this, but my host has it's own FTP as well. Not sure if all hosts do. FileZilla is nice and easy though.
- Logged in using the address they gave me to login to, and that password.
- Found the WP files my host has.
- Opened my own WP files.
- Drop and drag addons from one side to the other!

This question has been answered numerous times and it’s fair to say that even I have answered this question half a dozen times. However I thought I would be able to find a solution for this, but it seems there is some problem changing the files as you have said. Don’t sweat it though! I am working on it!

The way I do it is to simply search for the plugin in the WP admin interface (Plugins > Add new > Search > Install - done!) and I don't even have to mess around with a manual install.
