Hi, I need help installing plugins, I read http://wiki.geeklog.net/index.php/Plugins but I do not understand any of it. Is there an easy guide someware? One that tells you directely were to put the files?

I tried the guide that came with it but when I moved the admin to the admin folder it said I already had an index file in there.

You have to rename the "admin" directory (to the name of the plugin) and move it into the admin/plugins directory.

Hint: staticpages and spamx are two plugins that come pre-installed. Check their directory layout.

Btw, which plugin are you trying to install?

bye, Dirk

Well, "It doesn't work!" isn't really saying a lot ... The forum comes with pretty detailed installation instructions. What have you tried? Where are you stuck?

bye, Dirk

I just dont know where to put anything, I tried putting it in public_html and it overrit my index page, then I tried in plugins but that did not work, I tried renaming the admin file like you said and putting it in admin but that did not work.

Isnt there any step by step instructions or easy instructions?

As I said, there are. Right there in the forum directory is a very detailed install_doc.htm ...

Thats the problem, its TO detailed! I dont understand it lol, can someone take me through it step by step? I have no idea what:
Uncompress the archive files into your /plugins directory. It will create a forum directory and associated subdirectories for the files. You will need to move the files in the admin and public subdirectories to their appropriate directory as indicated below.
meens

And I dont get what
The files in the admin directory under your new plugins/forum folder need to be moved to /public_html/admin/plugins/forum directory.

You will need to first create the:

/public_html/admin/plugins/forum directory
meens...?
