cant find my plug ins on the dashboard......

  1. I want to add a shopping cart but I cant find the plug in tab on my dash.
    I was doing a little research and something said I needed an api code but I cant find it either on my profile page. Something is wrong and I want to scream.......
    Please help me if you can.

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

  2. Hi. Plugins and ecommerce are features of WordPress.ORG, not WordPress.COM where you are right now.

    More info on the difference: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  3. but the Archive Widget Plugin is a wordpress.com feature?
    (I cant find "plugins" on my wordpress menu)

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

    Please see here for the Archives shortcodes we can use on free hosted WordPress.com blogs > http://en.support.wordpress.com/archives-shortcode/

  6. Thank you. I just found this searching and am a little bummed.

  7. Shopping carts and ecommerce are not really a go here. If you want to do ecommerce, you will have to self-host a wordpress installation on a third-party hosting service such as godaddy, bluehost, etc., using the software from wordpress.ORG.

    Figure $15 to $30 per month give or take. That could go up though if you need an SSL certificate and dedicated IP address for whatever package you decide on. I've set up a couple that ended up at about $50 per month, but they were on more expensive hosting services.
