After several months of using WordPress.COM I have come to the realization that wordpress.COM in contrast to wordpress.ORG is a very closed system. Most of the things that I try to do to personalize my site are not allowed by the wordpress software, I understand the idea that some type of code is not allowed because of security risks (although I would argue by that logic you could just shut down the whole internet because there are security exploits everywhere, deal with it) I also understand the idea that a free solution is not going to be as good as a paid solution, but geez even some free solutions allow more usability than wordpress (although I will be the first to admit overall wordpress is the best free service). Now just so that I can have this be a support question and not ramblings that none cares about, my question is this, am I overreacting and is there a way to further customize wordpress.com to fit my needs, or must I become more computer savvy to upgrade to wordpress.ORG? Any help from anyone other than timethief will be much appreciated. :)
The blog I need help with is michaelkirschner.wordpress.com.
