I am attempting to enable extensions on civiCRM 4.6.8 via WordPress 4.3.
When I go to administer - system settings - manage extensions I am told I need to set my Extensions Directory. I do so via my file manager at public_html/iowafarmersunion/wp-content/plugins/files/civicrm/custom_ext, paste this file location into Civi, but them an told that the CiviCRM extension directory does not exist.
Am I skipping a step? I was following directly on this page: http://wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRMDOC/Extensions#Extensions-WordPress
edit: I have made sure the directory's permissions are set to 777 for the time being and still no dice.
