The files inside the wordpress directory should inside public_html

Like:

public_ html
        |_____ wp-config-sample.php
        |_____ wp-activate.php
        |_____ wp-admin (directory)
         etc.

Willing to do the move if you want (if not wraith or yourself)

You don't upload the wp folder, justs contents, if I understand. And the contents (files and subdirs) should be uploaded to /public_html

Yes just contents of the wordpress folder, and those contents go inside the public_html folder

Ok, I'm now uploading all 1,000+ files from the Wordpress folder to the public_html folder. Still wouldn't mind your help in setting it up, wraith or rgdot. Not at all conversant with php or DBs.

WordPress with Suffusion ready now, will send you the login details right after this.

(Don't let the default Suffusion look by itself put you off)

wraith, thanks for the space. rgdot, thanks for the setup. Appreciate both your contributions to my ongoing efforts to build an author platform.

I've at least got a landing page so far.

No problem.
If interested, couple of examples of what can be done with Suffusion are my site in my profile and in my sig.

Thanks, rgdot.

I've installed plug-in Akismet. Any other "must haves" in the plug-ins category?

Is there supposed to be something other than the landing page and the contact form?  I see the image, but no way to get to other content.

I'd get Jetpack (http://wordpress.org/plugins/jetpack/)

Other than that, I've used a few, but nothing indispensable.

You can get to other posts via Recent Posts, Archives, and Categories. I haven't put up a lot of content yet. I'll be transferring write-ups about some of my C# apps, and asking Perry and 4wd to write a bit about their experience editing/proofing (and, in Perry's case, designing the cover image) for Kyrathaba Rising.

I think (other than security) usually there are two 'immediate' plugin to dos when a site is set up. SEO and contact forms. If you need them these are some to consider:

WordPress SEO by Yoast http://wordpress.org...ugins/wordpress-seo/ (very highly rated)
or
All in One SEO Pack http://wordpress.org...all-in-one-seo-pack/


Contact Form 7  http://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7/ (many love it, some feel it's a bit overkill)
or
Slick Contact Forms http://wordpress.org...slick-contact-forms/

The one in my sig is just a one page site for now. With Suffusion you can turn off header, footer and have full page w/no sidebars.

Is there a widget or something I can set up that'll show the members who have joined? I had one person join, but I only know of it because of an alert email. I can find the person under Users, but I'd like something on the landing page that shows a list of members. Another question, I assume users (Subscriber is the default I assign them) can reply to posts but not start posts, and can comment, right?

Go to Appearance ---> Widgets and drop in a Query Users widget into the sidebar on the right of the page and see its configuration options. 

Can comment is the default. What do you mean by reply to posts, that's no different than commenting or am I misunderstanding what you mean? Starting all new posts gets into http://codex.wordpre...les_and_Capabilities as a starting point.

Got my second Goodreads review of Kyrathaba Rising, and it's a dandy!
