Sorry for being so dumb but how do I install a plugin? Can't find it in the docs!

OK, I found it at the top!

Okay, I'm missing something obvious here, as I don't see any options for "comments" anywhere.

Upgrade GP? Check.

Download / upload 1.3 of Simple Blog? Check

Go to Admin/plug in manager -- 1.2.1 of "Simple Blog" shows up, 1.3 of "Simple_Blog" does not...and 1.2.1 still points to "simple blog" directory rather than "simple_blog" directory. 

I'm worried in doing all this I'm going to lose my five detailed blog entries and won't be able to get them back took me a while to get the formatting right on them, as default OLD styles seem to have been embedded inline for some reason I can't fathom and changing the CSS wasn't changing the entry properly.

Thoughts, anyone? Do I have to "uninstall" 1.2.1?

I knew I was missing something easy -- when I D/Led, it created a folder called Simple_Blog. Within that, there was ANOTHER directory called basically nested itself one level too far down. When I uploaded, it couldn't find anything.

I did get it working, but all my previous posts were gone...fortunately, I had backed up earlier so could find the post_0.php file from that, but when I copied it over, the new blog wouldn't recognize it, since it has a different file structure. Should include a warning I think for this one that upgrading involves a new installation, rather than simple upgrade (unless there was another migratory option I didn't see).

All you need to do is put the files from the new Simple Blog plugin into your existing system. On your installation you probably have the files in /addons/Simple Blog. So instead of creating /addons/Simple_Blog, just put all those files in the existing folder.

Then, there is actually one more step, go to your "Plugins" page and go through the "Upgrade" process for the plugin.

Doh! I did it in the wrong order -- I upgraded, copied stuff over, installed new files in new directory, deleted old. Doh!

Simple_Blog makes gpEasy a great simple CMS that i've ever learned. Anyway, it seems that all of the posted are stored within only 1 single file, isn't it? Or will Simple_Blog spilt these contents when the size of this file reach at some point?

Yep - your second idea is right ;).

One cache file contains only 20 entries.

I have installed the current version of Simple Blog. There is no possibility to adding/configure comments on posts. May be, this version is a little bit buggy?

it's a bit hidden, I had the same problem to find it, just like you.

Also some alternative "date format" for blog posts could be nice:

currently is only like a "posted on 9/5/2011" ,

also could be like a "posted 15 minutes[/hours/days] ago" ~~ for example for posts younger than 1 month.

(similar like here on this forum)
