Can I install plugins on wordpress.com site?

  1. And if so, how can I do this? I'm specifically thinking of typekit fonts.

    The blog I need help with is cheaplikeborsht.wordpress.com.

  2. Sorry, plugins are not allowed at wordpress.COM for security reasons. Plugins are for self-hosted blogs using the software from wordpress.ORG.

  3. Sorry, I somehow hit submit before I finished. WordPress.com offers typekit fonts through the custom design upgrade.

  4. I AM CONFUSED AND FRUSTRATED! The plugin in' Feedjit' clearly offers a free to upload plugin (widget) specifically for WordPress and other Blogs.

    http://feedjit.com/freeLiveTrafficFeed/#customizeDiv

    It offers upload instructions after customisation but I cannot find any 'add new' plugins on WordPress. Can anybody help?

  5. @littlehamptonshopmobility: Did you read the links in thesacredpath's first answer above?

  6. Why are you frustrated @littlehamptonshopmobility? As @thesacredpath said, plugins are not allowed on wordpress.com, however they are acceptable on WordPress.ORG . Read his comment again http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/can-i-install-plugins-on-wordpresscom-site?replies=5#post-653337 .

    On WordPress.com blogs we cannot use the feedjit plugin. However, we can contact Feedjit and request the non-Javascript code for WordPress.com blogs and run it on our blogs. I have one but felt it was too invasive so I no longer use it. http://feedjit.com/app/contact
    There are also other third party non-Javascript visitor tracking programs we can use. Scroll down to "Visitor Tracking" on this page > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/popular-posts/

  9. I need to implement a payment system on my website.
    I have good references from "PayPal".
    But you must have "plugins."
    Is there a way to keep my blog (. Com) with this feature or buy it from?
    If not, how do I migrate to. Org and staying with all the work that has already been done?
    In waiting. Urgently.

  11. No, there is no way to use plugins on a WordPress.com blog.

    You can export the contents of your blog to a WordPress.org blog if you want. You'll have to find a new theme, though; most of our themes are not available for WordPress.org as far as I know.

    I need to implement a payment system on my website.

    There is no FTP access to WordPress.COM free hosted blogs. WordPress.com blogs cannot be equiped for ecommerce transactions. However, you can set up a PayPal Donation button. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/

    If you require e-commerce/shopping cart functionality, there are no restrictions on e-commerce if you setup a self-hosted WordPress.org blog instead of a free hosted WordPress.com blog. See here to learn the differences:
    http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    These are the types of blogs allowed and not allowed at WordPress.COM > http://wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/ Note that no blogger initiated advertising is allowed. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/advertising/

  13. Thanks!

    Raincoast, I have urgent to resolve this case.
    Do not have time to migrate to wordpress.org and do not have enough knowledge to configure it.

    Timethief, then my blog can be considered for business in view of existing types.
    Very interested by PayPal
    Can I post on my blog and continue with wordpress.com?
    So this button "DONATE" can be used as a means of payment, right?
