No plugin option

  1. Hello there! I am trying everything I can to add facebook, twitter, and pintrest buttons to my blog. But I don't have anything under the appearance option that let's me use a plugin. I can't find a way to use plugins anywhere in my admin. I am using the Matala theme. I have my own domain name so I would think I would have a way to use plugins. Can you help me?

    The blog I need help with is thesexycelibate.com.

  2. You don't need a plugin. Plugins are for WordPress.ORG blogs. Having a domain name gives you only that: a domain name. It doesn't change any of the hosting conditions here.

    But you don't need to. Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest buttons are built in and you can enable them on your Dashboard->Sharing page.

  3. Hello there,
    You can use any widget that has pure HTML but you cannot use any widgets that contain restricted codes like iframes or JavaScript widgets. In the case of Pinterest, you cannot use the Pin-it Javascript code on a WordPress.com blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    But you can put the code for the Pinterest follow button in a text widget.
    1. Go to this site, choose which one of the red Follow Me images you want, and copy the code for it. http://pinterest.com/about/goodies/

    2. Then, go to your widgets > Appearance > Widgets and select a text widget.http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/

    3. Paste the Pinterest follow button code into the text widget, "save" the widget, "close" the widget and place it where you want it to display in your sidebar.
