    Would me great if you could get a discuss module for wordpress.com and have it so we just need to log into our discuss account etc :)

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

  2. There is no FTP access to our free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we bloggers cannot install plugins.

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/

    FTP access and plugins are only for VIP bloggers http://vip.wordpress.com/our-services/ or for those with WordPress.ORG installs.

  3. All WordPress blogs by default have comments open on all Pages and Posts as in evidenced own your own blog. You can enable and disable comments on free hosted WordPress.com blogs on this page > Settings > Discussion
    Discussion settings is where you set up defaults for comments.

    You can also override the default settings and enable or disable future comments on any individual post or page.

    Note: By default, new blogs on WordPress.com will have the Discussion hidden. You can reveal it by clicking on Screen Options http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/ on the top right corner of your Admin page, and checking the box that says Discussion so the module is included. http://en.support.wordpress.com/modules/#list-of-modules

  4. At present there are no chatboxes or forums I am aware of that can be used on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. There is no FTP access and we cannot install plugins.

    Do know that you have three free workaround forum options: http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/04/23/wordpress-com-forum-options/
    One approach is to register a forum on the internet and then create a custom menu in your blog and include a custom link to the forum in it.
    a custom link to the forum in it.

    Fair points! :) Do you know a way of a charity like ours getting VIP access when our budget is £0 ??? :) #WorthAnAsk

  6. No. Why don't you just get independent hosting for $10-20 a month and then you can easily use Disqus?

    Could we transfer all the stuff we have on our wordpress.com sites over too?

  8. Yes, it's easy to transfer stuff from WordPress.com to WordPress.org. You can't transfer the theme, though. http://en.support.wordpress.com/?s=move+to+Wordpress.org
