Free Blog Problems

    Hi there. I just signed up for one of your free blogs. I wanted to try it out as I am interested in using your auction plugin in the near future. However, I can't even upload a photo to my blog. Do I need to pay for a blog to post photos and/or use the Auction plugin?
    Thank you for your help.

  2. You can upload photos to a WordPress.com blog, but you can't use plugins. Those are for Worspress.ORG blogs only.

    Thank you. How do I get a WordPress.org blog? I'm really doing this so that I can use your auction plugin. I have a friend that uses it on her WordPress website.
    How much is it for the cheapest, basic .org or website that you can use this plugin with?
    Thank you again.

  4. Figure $20 per month.

    You have to find a web host that's trustworthy, buy hosting from them, install software from wordpress.org, and then you are responsible for all updates and tech support for your own blog.

    Could I use it on my current website?

  6. http://denisepurrington.wordpress.com/ is a wordpress.com blog. A wordpress.org blog is completely separate, but you can just import the content from http://denisepurrington.wordpress.com/ to your new site and then set http://denisepurrington.wordpress.com/ to private.

    Thanks. When you say "new site", do you mean a wordpress.org blog site? I'm so confused : )

  8. Yes, that is what I mean.

    O.K., so if I download WordPress.org, I will be able to use the free auction plugin? In what way is the free version different then the others?
    I understand that I will need to find a hosting site and will most likely use one in your list. Do I set up that account first before downloading? And how difficult is it to set up and then install the auction plugin? I'm starting to think I need to find someone to help me do this.
    Thanks for your help : )

  10. Yes, you will be able to use the plugin IF you get hosting and set it up there. http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
