how to install a plugin?
i've tried alot to install plugins to my site but i couldnt... pls tel me how to do step by step so that it would be helpful for me as well as for others.
There are some plugins that come with Statusnet. For those, just look in your $STATUSNET/plugins directory. You should see a number of directories (folders) underneath that. Each plugin gets its own folder. Most of those come with a README.txt or INSTALL.txt file that describes what needs to be entered into the config.php file to activate the plugin.
For other plugins, you have to download the plugin archive, which is usually zip (filename ends in .zip) or tarball (filename ends in .tar.gz or .tar.bz2). If you're using Windows, you can extract this using 7zip. You should get a folder named after the plugin it contains. Next, use an FTP client (I recommend Filezilla) to upload that entire folder into your $STATUSNET directory's /local directory. ( I suggest /local instead of /plugins because that way upgrading your installation is less problematic. If /local does not exist, go ahead and create it, but make sure you use all lower case in the name.). Once again, read the README.txt or INSTALL.txt to see what settings to place into your config.php file to activate the plugin.
There are other ways to obtain the plugin files, but I expect this will be less confusing for you.
Finally, if you have the queuedaemon or other daemons running, stop and restart them.
