  1. trying to plug-in the ecwid but don't have option of doing so in the dashboard. how do i get this?

  2. Hello there,

    There is no FTP access and no plugin capability on free hosted WordPress.com blogs.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/

    There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes anything at all stated here http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ FTP access, and plugins are available only for VIP bloggers http://vip.wordpress.com/our-services/ or for those with WordPress.ORG installs.
    Please read > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    WordPress.org offers free software that you can install on a web server. You can upload and install themes and plugins, run ads, and edit the database. Learn about the differences here. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  3. thank you for response.
    so i would need to close this website and open a new one on wordpress.org to get the plug in benefits.

  4. Hi again,
    Yes if you want plugins you need to have a WordPress.org install. To move your content you need to create an XML export file of your content. It will not include the theme as they cannot be exported. See 3 below.

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate.

    1. Hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/

    2. Set up a WordPress.org install and equip it with a theme and plugins.
    http://wordpress.org/themes/
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/

    3. Export your content out of your WordPress.com blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/export/ and import it into the install.

    4. Purchase a site redirect upgrade from wordpress.com
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/site-redirect/ or if you have domain mapping then update the nameservers http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/domain-management/

    5. Transfer subscribers and stats. See http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/moving-your-subscribers/
