I'm not sure why I'm so confused about installing this plugin. I have installed it, but it is not showing up in my dashboard for some reason.
Any insight would be great. Thank you!
Which plugin Elaine, please drop the name. Or do you mean installing Vanilla itself. Please provide detailed Information, there more the better.
Hi phreak, thanks for the response. Sorry for the lack of information. I'm feeling very scattered today!
I downloaded what I thought was the open source plugin found here: http://vanillaforums.org/get/vanilla-core.
I was following the "read me" instructions for installation.
So you are having trouble installing Vanilla?

Thank you hgtonight. And this is for the open source installation? I think this is where I am getting confused. Thanks again!
1) a plugin is found in add-ons section
2) a theme is found in add-ons section
3) if you have downloaded vanilla and installed it why are you downloading the core again? the core is NOT a plugin, it is the open-source code for the forum itself.
I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
@peregrine The core vanilla release is also hosted on the addons section of this site.
I can see how it would be confusing.
Thanks you two. I'm still confused and not entirely sure where to download the open source plugin, but I will have to take a look at the Wiki tomorrow.
@Elaine_Griffin_2013 you would download it here if your host does not provide it
every part of this software is open source , plugins, themes , apps, locales. Open source means it's code is open for manipulation and adaptation by anyone capable.
Download the app then ftp install into a subdirectory called forum or whatever you want to call it.
