uploading a new file to a wordpress site

Posted 03 July 2011 - 02:20 PM

Hi. A buddy asked me to create a nwe page for his site. I have made the page (results.php) and I have ftp access to his site, but i have never wored with wordpress before, and I can't even find where to put the new file. I downloaded the entire site to my apache server at home, so I could root around in the files without destroying anything but there are almost 10,000 files, in 30 directories and after an hour of searching, I still can't find the folder with the content files. I need to add a page and add a link in the navigation header, but I can't even find the navigation/header file.

I found a folder called wp-content, but it just has a couple cache-config files. Any hints or a good tutorial would be great, thanks.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

You should use the dashboard to upload new files but if you're also looking for where the file will be put, you should be able to find it at
<path to wordpress install>/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/

The dashboard login page will be at <website url>/wordpress/wp-login.php

Ok, I will try that. He only gave me the ftp login info, so I will get the wp login info and try that. Will let you know how it goes.

What info will you put on that new page?

Wordpress has a function for a new button/page.

Hi, you could possibly try using Exec-php, it allows you to add code directly to a post.

So you could have one page or a sidebar widget for a search field and then have it use post pages to process the results/display results rather than making another page, it is easy to use and uses the WordPress security.

One thing to note is make sure that in admin/settings/writing the formatting for correct invalidly nested XHTML is not ticked or it will just add a space to the <?php ?> tags and your code will fail.
