  • Good Video, Thanks / this is New: “Free Traffic” Do not pass this up. This is all together ‘Different’ See it ……”go to My Name”

  • Thanks for the video and instruction. How does WordPress decide on what page the plugin goes on. If I have a Landing Page with no plugins, can I put the plugins on another page? Thanks again!

  • @miklamx Plugins are a background item. Or maybe better a “behind the scenes” item. They don’t show up anywhere, they just “do their thing” whatever that is. Maybe you mean how to place a widget? That’s a whole nother conversation, and that has to do with changing the html for different placement of the widget.
    hope that helped. If not, give more information and I may be able to get more detailed.

  • @JapAnimeHD No. the plug-ins are only an option if you host your own site. The free versions do not have the options.

  • In order to have plugins You have to buy a domain, plus hosting and have wordpress uploaded to it. One way to get it uploaded is to use wordpress install expert dot com They do it for free if you sign up for hosting through their link. their hosting is through host gator which is the cheapest hosting service I’ve found.

  • @tosikuai if you already have wordpress loaded onto the server at godaddy all you have to do is go to the plugin section of the dashboard and select “add new” I recommend at least getting “akismet” to control spammers, and “dofollow” to encourage comments. personally I also use “sexy bookmarks” “simple image link” and “Twitter tools” on all my sites.

  • @tosikuai what wordpress theme are you using? I mostly use “Thesis” and the “plugins” is on the left side about halfway down. I’m not familiar with all the themes, but if you let me know which one is installed I can probably help.

  • @benjaminkong If you are self-hosting the plugin section will be on the left hand side, as shown in the video, If your site is “free” and a wordpress site, with an address like Mysite wordpress com , then you won’t have this capability. If you are self hosting (have it on your own domain) and you don’t see this, maybe update your WP version.

  • @Rob1963 what do you have to upgrade, when you go to worpress upgrade it gives you options of what to buy, I already have a domain I renew. But I still see no plug in option on the left.

  • I don’t know for sure what you mean by that. You paid money for a domain through wordpress? I didn’t know they did that. If it has “word press” as part of your URL the answer is no. if you have an independant site (like your name dot com) and have a word press theme installed then the answer is yes. most people buy their domains through godaddy or network solutions. I don’t recommend network solutions.they are expensive, upsell and hosting is incompatable with word press features

  • I’m using The Twenty Eleven Theme and I have purchased my own domain but still don’t have a plug-in option in my dashboard. I think you commented on how to get the plug-ins option somewhere in this thread but I remain confused as to what needs to happen. I am trying to install an all-in-one SEO plug-in. Please help.

  • Here is something I just learned. If you bought your domain and it is hosted by WordPress, you do not have the option to add plugins. I don’t understand why, but that’s their policy.

  • hi im using wordpress and whenver i go to install a plugin on the admin site i get a file error and it doesnt work. then i tried downloading the zip and uploading it to install but i just get this “Unpacking the package…” and it doesnt budge. is there something that i am missing? looking to install something like googleanalytics to check the site hits
