Discussion forum

  1. I am trying to figure out how to add a discussion forum to a page on my blog for a class that I'm teaching. I am very confused about the possibility of plugins. I have paid for a domain but I don't know if that gives me the ability to use plugins. As of right now, I don't see that option in my dashboard.

    The blog I need help with is dslamy.com.

    Having a custom domain unfortunately doesn't give you plugins on WP.com. Plugins aren't included here on WordPress.com due to security problems.

    You can find out more about plugins on WP.com here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/

    If you want to add a forum to your site, you'll have to find new hosting and use WordPress.org.

    If you want to create a discussion page here on WP.com you can just create a page and use comments instead.

    Here you can find a blog post from @timethief about Forum workarounds for WP.com users: http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/04/23/wordpress-com-forum-options/
