how to modify, put html php

  1. hello,i am loving wordpress,but there are things,im missing out on-which programs,do i have to use,to add more widgets,modify the sidebar section ,andputting new widgets avaiable?thanks

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

  2. We cannot edit the underlying theme files here at wordpress.COM. This is a multi-user platform which means we all share the same underlying theme and wordpress files. Any change by one person would change it for everyone using that theme.

    Some plain HTML can be put into text widgets, but allowable HTML is limited. You also can't use javascript or PHP for security reasons. Direct flash embeds are also not allowed although some of it can be used with the gigya shortcode. The gigya shortcode is not supported and the fact that it works here is sort of a fluke. If at some point abuse of it becomes an issue, it will vanish without even a puff of smoke.

    Tell us what you want to do and let us see if there are some workarounds. Over the years users and we volunteers have come up with some ways to do things here that normally would not be possible.

    The other choice would be to self-host an installation of the wordpress.ORG software on a third-party hosting service such as godaddy, bluehost, etc., and then you can hack, slash and burn your site to your heart's content. Self-hosting comes with additional responsibilities and in general will run you around $10 to $25 per month, all costs considered.

  3. how do i put,this for example,or something similar?http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-useronline/i use wp.com

  4. You can't. That is not something we can use here.

    I use the Whosamung.us widget which you just put in a text widget.

  5. ok,thank a lot
