Default Addons Wtf

So I restarted WoW this week and have yet to WotK but thats besides the point. After the game finished updating all my addons were out of date. So I re downloaded the ones I wanted and bam they do not work. I unzipped them dropped them into the addon's folder and when I get ingame and I click the addon list in character selection, there is nothing there. So what do I do?>

lol@you.

check the Public folder under C: or whatever you have. Check the games folder, and WoW is there. That is where your addons go now, newb.

Right click launcher -> properties
Make sure its launching from the same location as your addons would be (c:/program files/world of warcraft/)

I find it amusing that 4 people have given unhelpful answers, and I will probably be the 5th.

If your having trouble manually installing it try using Curse Client (www.curse.com). It installs everything for you. I don't really use it myself personally but you might find it useful. I'm not sure if this would remedy the problem. And this public folder is also intriguing to me. Its not that WTF folder is it?

wow really

i thought wow automatically moved the old interface folders to a backup one during major patch changes.

In that case missilX then apparently the other replies really are completely worthless, sorry LOL

how can you guys trust the curse client? :\
