Thanks for visiting globinch. After uploading the plugin to your wordpress plugins folder, you need to login to the admin interface, click the plugins in the left side menu.
Find the new 3d tags plugin from the list of plugins.
Click the "activate" link below the plugin details.
Once activated you can start using the plugin.
Thanks for this articles. It really helps and save my headache. Nice
