Installing addons from zip (hear me out)


Ive been searching and searching and I know that there is a thread literally named the same as mine but I need help. When I follow the wiki I get no such option for installing from zip file. Am I doing something wrong. I dont see the option anywhere, even when I switch skins to confluence. Does the zip file need to be on the pi before I get that option. Can I install the zip from USB? Ive just been following whats been posted but I see no option for me to install from zip.

Im sorry if ive wasted your time and I appreciate any help.

You need to follow:
Settings|Addons|Install from zip file|
which should allow you to pick Home Folder (on the Pi) or somehere else, including network sources or mounted USB (look under Root Filesystem for /media/…
