Cannot add Plugin Installer or anything else! Help!

  1. Hi!

    I'm desperately in need of assistance as I've been trying for hours and hours with no success; only confusion and frustration! Whaa!

    Ok so I'm trying to add Google Analytics to the WordPress site. I have successfully done this already on other wordpress sites but then again the dashboard looks completely different to what I'm used to. (On the wordpress sites I'm used to, I usually log in like this.. http://www.domainname.co.uk/wp-admin but on this occasion I have to use wordpress.com)

    I have taken a screenshot of what the dashboard shows but can't see how to add it to this post.

    It's missing the Plugins Installer and the /wp-plugins doesn't go to anywhere either.

    It's driving me nuts that I can't do things and everything seems very difficult to find.

    Is there anyone out there with more experience that's able to help me?

    The blog I need help with is fingerblast-clothing.com.

  2. Your other sites are wordpress.org sites. wordpress.com is different. See:

  3. Thanks for the link... I just read on there, "You can’t upload plugins" - basically, there's no way it can be done :(

    Am I right in thinking the only way is to start again, this time on a .org wordpress and by arranging my own hosting?

  4. If you want plugins, you are right, start again with a wordpress.org blog.
