Access to .php files and plugins

  1. I've worked with WordPress before as at work I had to create a WordPress based site to use as an intranet but now I am creating a blog for myself. However, my own site seems to be lacking functions as the one that I worked on previously. There is no option in my dashboard to install plugins and there is no access point into the .php files such as the header, footer, ect for me to customize my page.
    I did buy my own domain, it is not a free site.wordpress.org and I have purchased the value bundle.

    The blog I need help with is grinning-tiger.com.

  2. There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs and we cannot install plugins. Those found on the internet are for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software. Also note that we cannot access the php underlying our blogs and edit templates or themes.

    There is no upgrade that you can purchase from WordPress.com that provides FTP access,the ability to install plugins, and access to the php underlying our blogs. We cannot edit templates or themes on free hosted WordPress.com blogs.
