    I was reading the threads here on autoblogging hoping to learn how to build one but It only left me confused and frustrated.

    yes I am aware that you can insert different plugins to display fresh related content to your blog, but I first need to know how to build a wordpress theme.

    # anybody have or know of any good wordpress theme builders?

    >>>also how the heck do you input your plugins within your wordpress blog?
    for example I have associated content, but I have no idea on how to implement the dang thing.

    please help.

    I found it's works best to use existing themes shared on wordpress dot org/extend/themes
    Many people use it for their WH blogs, so the autoblogs will blends better.

    hey thnx for the response.
    So anyways I downloaded one of those wordpress themes.
    when I open it all I get is a bunch of folders with .php files.

    >>how do I manage the theme so that I can host it somewhere? and how can I input the plugins?

    Im sorry for being a noob. its just that .php confuses me.

    You need to upload the plugins to /wp-content/plugins
    and that theme to /wp-content/themes

    Then you can manage them from administration panel (plugin and appearance)

    Of course. Any linux hosting which support PHP script can run wordpress.
    And that's how you manage WP blog in general.

    Hi Entrepreneur,

    Look for a host that has "cpanel". If the host has cpanel then they should have "fantastico" which will help install a WP blog in just a few clicks. I recommend hostgator.

    Then you find your admin panel for your blog, here : http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin


    For the domain above make sure where it says "your domain" it is your domain name.

    Once inside your admin look on the left under "plugins".There should be a link that says "install new". Click that and it will take you to a page that will allow you to install a plug in from your computer.

    I also use the plugin "one click plugin updater"- it helps with plugin and theme uploads and also notifies you when there is a new version of a plugin.

    Hope this helps.

    Deanna
