Plugins package problem uploading my widget control plugin

Postby sharonv » Thu Jan 08, 2015 3:46 pm

1)Plugins- i went to upload my widget control pluginn in wp and it came up with a message:The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature

2)I guess im supposed to unzip the package of plugins on my site with an unzip and then try and upload my plugin?

3)also is it necessary for me to have my menu in the middle can i have it over to the right or not? - m doing paid traffic and i was following your artisteer set up on video: Building sites for paid traffic, Great video by the way, stacked with all kinds of tips!

hi sharonv (fast question - Are you a member of the Marcus FFN skype group. A lot of topics are discussed their with lots of tips)

question 1 - are you sure you was uploading widget control. it has to be a zipped file

question 2 - No "ALL" plugins are uploaded as a zip file.

Question 3 - Placement of the menus is theme dependent. If you are using an Artisteer theme maker, then you put the menus where you want them. then download load it as a wordpress zip file. Also in your dashboard>widgets (dashboard>appearance>widgets) their are three widgets you can try playing with. they are Custom menu, Vertical Menu, Pages. Note I have never played with them. Put people are accustom to seeing the menu centered and just below your website header.

Hopefully others will give some more tips.

Hi Jim i have tried to get skype with no luck before , do you think you could do a little video on how to do it, as i have tried several times before with no luck.

My problem right now is: i have the plugin package and im trying to open the package with when im in wp i go to uploads i go to the file where the bulk of plugins are i slide the file over across my 7 zip on my computer it doesn't unzip the package

how does everyone else do it, or should i go back to where the plugins are on this site try and just upload widget control again seperately and then try and slide it over the 7zip on my desktop and then it can upload to my wp?

From your experience what did you do to upload, your plugins

OR

when im in wp and im in the plugin uploads section AT SAME TIME I'M IN: im in the marcus plugins areashould i try and upload it from there?

I want to take this time to thank you for all your time in answering my questions, your so much appreciated, thank you.

are you getting these plugin from the FFN forum plugin club. If so I can't download it to see if I get the same error. I don't belong to the plugin club.

I just went to look for the plugin area and it looks like Marcus changed the forum around. I don't see where the plugin are located to download.

Also don't forget I need either your name, email or skype username so I can find you and add you to the FFN skype group.

Are you in Marcus Five Figure Mastermind skype group (FFM)?
It is hard to help you on this problem in the forum. In the skype group we can chat live.
In the skype group, just leave a post (comment) and someone will respond. most of Marcus senior students and me too, monitor this skype group.

also in the skype group, we can share screens, so we can see what you are doing or what why you are getting the error problem. I use widget control all the time and just installed it today on one of my test site, with no problems

Hi,

I've have a couple of questions pertaining to the setup of my blog:
1.) Now that SqueezeBlogsPro has replaced widget control, do I put SqueezeBlogsPro in the primary widget area of my page setup as described in video 2? There is no separate widget control plugin downloaded.
2.) When I try to install the monetize plugin I get a message that says "plugin failed. Destination folder already exists." What do I have to do next?
3.) This is a problem of my own making. I somehow wedged the toolbar on the top and left side of the desktop. I don't have access to the taskbar to move the window around or to minimize it. Any solutions?

Thanks,
Tom

Hi tpverlin

You need to go into your plug-in area (log into your admin area, click on dashboard, scroll down to plug-in and click.) and remove the SqueezeBlogsPro and Widget Control if it is installed too. You fisrt must deactivate the present plug-in, the you can delete it. Until they are removed, you will get a failed message when trying to up load the plug-in.

Note - this goes for any plug-in you are trying to install. they will not install until you removed the present one.

Hi ...
Followed the advice to delete plugins ... I deleted everything I uploaded and started over. When I uploaded the MONITIZE-GRID-1.0.3-BRANDED it installed the EZBLOGADSPRO. But when I clicked into the edit on Ezblogadspro (NOT to change anything to have a look) - it says "monitize-grid/monitize-grid.php (active)" but the Ezblogadspro is another zip file ... is this a duplicate, are they two different plugins that need to be installed or is one an updated plugin (if so, which one)? Thank you.

Follow up to my previous message ...
I uploaded the monitize-grid-1.0.3-branded first, then uploaded the other plugins ... content-cash-finder, EzBlogAds and SqueezeBlogsPro. They all appear to be there now & it appears that there is a correct order to upload them.

actually, their is no correct order. every plug-in is independent from each other. However, you are right, it is confusing to upload one plug-in and see a different name for it. How are you suppose to know this is the updated version of the plug-in you just up loaded. Their are a few older plug-ins like widget control v5 that have been updated, but with a new name and when you watch the videos, they make reference to the older name and not the new name.

As far as I know, their is no list yet to what the new names for these plug-ins are that have older titles.

I just took a look and I don't see your Skype name in the Five Figure Mastermind Skype group. For quick response to your questions, I recommend that you join it. I think you can join the group through the Affiliate Marketing Dude (simple sites big profit) toolbar that the plug-ins come with. If you don't have the toolbar, you can go to my "Simple Sites Big Profits Review" website http://simplesitesbigprofitsreview.com and watch a video on the toolbar and get it their too.
