Getting started

I am a new user.

I am missing a 1st step "How To."

How do I get your plugins into my existing wordpress.org website?

It looks as though wpmudev is "front ending" my normal wordpress screen.
How do I interface the two?

    Hey Darryl. The easiest way to get started with WPMU DEV themes and plugins is to first install the WPMU DEV Dashboard plugin.

    After downloading it, in your WordPress dashboard go to Plugins > Add New select Upload, then upload the .zip plugin file. After installing the plugin and entering your WPMU DEV API Key you'll be able to easily install new themes and plugins in just one click.

    See the plugin usage instructions for an alternate method of install (FTP) and detailed setup instructions.

    Hope this helps.

    @DrDarryl

    Did you mean a wordpress.com site, if you are not on a pro level there you cannot install any plugins or themes.

    If you are hosting somewhere else then @Gabe 's answer is spot on dependent on the hosts limitations regarding privileges and mysql php and wordpress versions they have available.

    Cheers!

    Tom,
    Your post caused me to go back and reread the post from Gabe.

    I missed a step.

    The "WordPress dashboard go to Plugins > Add New select Upload, then upload the .zip plugin file" didn't sink in.

    I am in now and see the potential.

    Thank You!
