Now you can’t tell me nothing, somehow all that information system information that lied dormant in my left brain begin to stir and come alive. The flow was amazing, I know this stuff as I begin to upload WordPress Plugins and themes through filezilla to my hostgator account. For about two weeks I kept changing my themes because the selection was huge. I couldn’t make up my mine and I knew that I need to select a theme. I did not have to use my cpanel to upload anything once I installed the filezilla program to my computer. Of course through trial and error I became familiar with the FTP process.
