How to put my blog offline

  1. Hello. I am trying to take my blog offline temporarily because I need to do important updates. I know there are plugins available to do this, but for some reason, the plugin option does not exist in this theme. Is there a way within this theme to temporarily take it off line? Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is emmafradd.com.

  2. There is no FTP access to our free hosted WorPress.com blogs and we bloggers can't install plugins for security reasons. http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/ Also note that there is no upgrade you can purchase that allows FTP access and the ability to install plugins. Only those with WordPress.org installs can use plugins http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    All support documentation for free hosted WordPress.com blog is found here. http://en.support.wordpress.com/ To change your blog visibility setting go here > Settings > Reading
