    If I took the Fantastico quick installation route, then how would I install plugins for my wordpress?

    Would I have to manually upload them via an ftp server, or does wordpress allow you to use it on your site via their admin panel?

    Also, if I wanted to add a new theme to my wordpress would I have to manually upload it via a ftp server?

    you can install plugins from the dashboard. go to plugins, and add new.

    to upload themes from the dashboard, get the "oneclick" plugin and install it. you shouldn't need to use ftp, all being well
