  1. Go to http://minecraftforge.net, scroll down and find "1.8 latest" and choose installer to download.
  2. Download the .jar file then go to properties of the file then mark "allow executing file as program and open with "Open jdk 7 runtime" have an active INTERNET connection then install the client.
  3. Navigate to your .minecraft folder and create a mods folder.
  4. Open your minecraft launcher; a profile Forge should pop up - select it.
  5. Select "1.8 Forge" (scroll down).
  6. Paste any mod that is in .jar format into the mods folder. (go to http://9minecraft.net to get these mods)

Some mods will not work so if minecraft crashes just delete it. It may be a good idea to take and backup your worlds on your desktop by going to .minecraft/saves and copy all of your folder worlds.
