having trouble with Plugins

  1. Hi, I'm new to WordPress.
    I want to add the plugin "Contact Form 7" to the above but there is no sign of the Plugin menu.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance,
    Chris

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

  2. Plugins are not for WordPress.COM blogs. They are only for WordPress.ORG blogs.

    If you want to use a contact form on a WordPress.COM blog, just see the Support documents:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/?s=contact+form

  3. There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs and we cannot install individual plugins or any themes into them The themes found on the internet are for wordpress.ORG installs which run on different software.

    On free hosted wordpress.COM blogs we can only use the themes which have been coded to run on this multi-user software and made available to us here. > Appearance > Themes and no others. We cannot edit either themes or templates on free hosted wordpress.COM blogs. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    If you wish to have complete control over a blog, the ability to upload themes and plugins, and to edit themes and templates then your option is to hire a web host and get a free software install from WordPress.ORG and self host it.

    If you are referring to a software install from WordPress.org then the correct support forum is here > http://wordpress.ORG/support/
