    Hi fellow BHTR's,

    I purchased what essentially amounts to a "blog in a box"


    It's not quite your standard zipped theme, or separate plugins - it
    appears to be consolidated - I can actually see some theme components
    when I unzipp it.

    In many ways the theme components almost appears like a regular
    "zipped" theme - but i don't see any "plugins?" So I assume their intrinsic
    instructions or sub-routines, are already contained with the Wp-Database
    (if not, then I have no clue how the quote unquote "plugins" could reside
    in what they supplied me)...

    Something tells me that when I get this all "completed" it may infact have your
    standard wordpress "dashboard" but I can't imagine imagine that traditional
    "plugins" would actually be installed in the plugins area of the theme? (again I'm guessing
    they are instead commands or subroutines within the mysql DB. Of course I have
    no real idea)...

    But, it doesn't seem totally "un-doable" for me

    But I certainly could use just a little "nudge" or advice by someone whose done it before - it would certainly help

    The instruction page is a "quick" and brief;

    1. create DB and user
    2. adding domain
    3. downloading files
    4. importing DB

    Any advice or direction would be appreciated. I tried to google it,
    but it is not something that easily lends itself to "searching"
