    Greetings,
    I would like to add an application to my hosted wordpress blog, this is not a plug-in. I am waiting to hear from the application developer regarding this, but thought I would ask the experienced masses of BHW for advice. I am hosted on Startlogic and have had problems with applications for my regular website. If I charged hosts would it help or is this just "operator malfunction" (me).

    Thanks. :D

    Are you talking about some other PHP functions that are not part of the WP install? If so I would put it in another directory such as /myApp/ under the root and it should not interfere with your WP install

    The app is not part of the WP install. It's a swf file not php
    Here is the squeeze page of the application.
    hxxp://w**ww.magnetizemypage.com/
    Here are the instructions from the User Guide:

    "The pagemag.swf File.
    As part of your download, you received a .swf file named pagemag.swf.
    This is an Adobe Flash file that contains the P M application.
    You'll want to upload this file to a location on a site you own. For example, if you own
    http://www.theworldsbestsite.com, you may want to upload the pagemag.swf file to the main
    directory of that site so that it's located at:
    http://www.theworldsbestsite.com/pagemag.swf
    Make a note of this location, as you'll need it in a moment."

    I'm a noob to this and I'm not sure about the term "root".

    My blog url looks like this: stuff.morestuff.com

    the file manager looks like this:

    stuff.morestuff.com 755 4.0 K Sat Jan 03 19:56:32 2009
    open folder wp-admin 755 8.0 K Thu Oct 02 15:10:122008
    open folder wp-content 755 4.0 K Thu Oct 02 15:25:06 2008
    open folder wp-includes 755 8.0 K Thu Oct 02 15:10:17 2008
    download [Edit] file index.php
    etc.


    Hope this explains my problem better.

    Thanks,
