Subject: Unzip to wiki
Ok, this is a very beginner question (I've never used a wiki before), but how specifically do I unzip a .zip or .jar (?) file to my wiki so I can apply a template?  Do I have to deal with the server?

Thanks

If you use Windows, you can unzip it with winrar, winzip, or something else. Then Upload it to your wiki into the following folder:
<DW>/lib/tpl/
Now you can activate the template in the config of your wiki.

If you want to install a Plugin you can do that with the plugin manager.

If that is the case, how do I specify which directory to upload the files to?  Is it in the same place where I upload pictures and such?  That is the only place where I can find an upload function, and that is specifically tied to that page...along that note, do I actually create a page "lib" and then upload the folder there?  I have navigated to the lib/tpl/ folder where there are all the color swatches and stuff, I just don't know where to go from there.  Like I said, I'm very new at this and kind of lost

Thanks

No, you must upload it via FTP, for this you can use Filezilla.

You don't use the Wiki to upload anything.  Uploading in the Wiki is only for content going into the Wiki.

You need FTP access to the program folders on the server to upload templates and other features.
