Maybe this is just an obviously stupid question, but I have been given conflicting answers by people I trust. I wanted to add some plugins to my wordpress.com blog (http://alittleclarity.wordpress.com) with the press row theme -- specifically the Gregarious plugins (http://lipidity.com/web/wordpress/wp-plugin-gregarious/).
I can't find a WSR extension among the bunch, after I've extracted the file. A friend told me that the plugins don't work with wordpress.com blogs -- only with wordpress.org blogs, and that I should find and pay a hosting provider and get a website designed without WP support, if I want social bookmarking beyond de.li.cio.us and flick'r. (This friend has a Moveable Type blog)
A different friend says that I can make the plugins work on WordPress.com, but I just am not doing it right.
Can you help? I didn't see quite the answer in the forum. many thanks for the help!
