    So, I bought my domain from WordPress but there is no option for me to add plugins in my dashboard - or for me to import a template that doesn't show in the ones already offered.

    How can I get plugins when there is simply no option on my dashboard (wp-admin)?

    The blog I need help with is wanderful-world.com.

  2. You can not install any kind of plugins here on WordPress.com. Plugins are only allowed on WordPress.org
    The limitations and prohibitions remain the same no matter if you buy any upgrade. You buy some features and can't get rid of limitations.

    Please consider the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org
    WordPress.org Vs WordPress.com

  3. Our free hosted WordPress.com blogs are all on the same multiuser blogging platform and FTP access which is required for uploading plugins is not provided for security reasons.

  4. for me to import a template that doesn't show in the ones already offered.

    You cannot import a theme. We do not have FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we not able to upload any third party themes.

    The only themes you can use on a free hosted WordPress.com blog are those found here > Appearance > Themes and showcased here > http://wordpress.com/themes/

    There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes anything at all stated clearly here > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you want to use any third party theme or build your own theme then don't waste any time here at all. Purchase web hosting http://wordpress.org/hosting/ and set up your own WordPress.org install. http://wordpress.org/ Then move your .wordpress.com blog content into it http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/

  5. Thanks for adding this! Good day TT :)
