Lightbulb I can call myself the best mybb novice!
Please where do I upload a plugin to, and how to install (if plugins are ever installed) it? I already know how to activate plugins.
In root of your file system.

Generally is "/"

Upload the folders in "/"
/inc/plugins

so when i upload them there, I should find them at ACP >>Plugins?

Yes, find them in your ACP > Plugins and then click on "Install and active" on interested plugin.
You guys are confusing me! Is it root folder or /inc/plugins ?

Depend how shows the plugin.

First, if shows a folder/s, them must be uploaded in "/" therefore root of your forum.

Second, if shows ONLY files (therefore not folders) you must uploaded them in folder of your files system, depending from files' suffix:

.php file -> generally these files must be uploaded in inc/plugins or in "/" or in other (read the README file released with everyone plugins, contains the instructions);

.js file -> generally these files must be uploaded in /jscripts;


And so on...
Ok, thanks francis & dark , will check both methods, hope none will spoil my forum
