    Please help. I can't seem to find a way to add an image widget to my post. Is there another way to do this? Thank you.

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

  2. Image widgets are for sidebars, not for embedding into posts and pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/image-widget/

    These are the accepted file types:
    .jpg/.jpeg
    .gif
    .png
    Instructions here http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/
    Here are more details about the options for uploading images http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/04/26/images-the-three-link-options/

    So I can't post a widget from Lyst with html code on a post?

  4. You cannot post any widget into any post or page. Widgets can only be installed in sidebars and or footer areas provided for widgets. WordPress.com supports original content blogging only they do not provide the ability to "splog" ie. no automated content can be used to fill posts or pages. Moreover, Lyst is shopping site and you are not allowed to use any free hosted WordPress.com blog to drive traffic to third party sites like it.

  5. I visited your "blog" and it's splog full of copied and pasted ads set up to drive content to thrid party commercial sites so I reported it to Staff. Here's what gets a free hosted WordPress.com blog suspended:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/suspended-blogs/
    http://wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/advertising/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/affiliate-links/
    http://en.wordpress.com/tos/

  6. To move your content you need to create an XML export file of your content. It will not include the theme as they cannot be exported. See 3 below.

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate.

    1. Hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/

    2. Set up a WordPress.org install and equip it with a theme and plugins.
    http://wordpress.org/themes/
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/

    3. Export your content out of your WordPress.com blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/export/ and import it into the install.

    4. Purchase a site redirect upgrade from wordpress.com
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/site-redirect/ or if you have domain mapping then update the nameservers http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/domain-management/

    5. Transfer subscribers and stats. See http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/moving-your-subscribers/

    Also note WordPress.com and WordPress.org have different log-ins and run different versions of themes with same names. If you don't have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.

    Ok, you could have just let me know so I could fix my blog instead of reporting me. I was just looking for some help here.

  8. Fixing your blog would mean removing all the content as none that I saw was original at all. You are simply copying and pasting commercial image ads into posts.

  10. You too and best wishes.
