  1. I have found a service on the Internet called Website Toolbox.
    I am considering using it in conjunction with my WordPress Blog,
    but I can find no historical data about the company.

    The only thing that makes me think it might be legitimate is that it mentions WordPress and provides instructions for using the two services together.

    MY question is:

    Is anyone familiar with Website Toolbox? Is it a safe and legitimate service? Does it work well with WordPress?

    Thanks,
    Sarah

    The blog I need help with is smzang.wordpress.com.

  2. You can't use plugins on a WordPress.COM blog anyway, so it doesn't really matter for http://smzang.wordpress.com/ either way. Plugins are only for WP.ORG blogs.

  3. Raincoaster,

    If you feel my question 'doesn't really matter' then you should not have replied to it.

    It matters to me and I find your response rather rude.

  4. If anyone has information that would be helpful in answering my question, I would appreciate your input.

    Thanks,

    Sarah

  5. 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 this. FTP access, and plugins are available only for VIP bloggers http://vip.wordpress.com/our-services/ or for those with WordPress.ORG installs. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  6. You can't use plugins. The question is not irrelevant, PLUGINS are irrelevant to your blog.

    Try not to take offence at answers in technical support forums.

  7. Is anyone familiar with Website Toolbox? Is it a safe and legitimate service? Does it work well with WordPress?

    The answer to your questions are irrelevant as there is no plugin capacity on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. Moreover, we aren't allowed to post discussion questions to these technical support forums. Here we are focused only on WordPress.com support issues.

  8. Timethief,

    My question is not about what is available on WordPress.com.

    My question is about the value of Website Toolbox in relationship to
    Wordpress blogs and if it is a legitimate service.

    This would ideally be responded to by someone who is familiar with
    Toolbox.

    I am in the process of expanding my blog. There are many options.
    If anyone is familiar with the Website Toolbox service, I would appreciate shared information.

    If you are reading this and know nothing of Website Toolbox and its interaction with WordPress, then your comments aren't really helpful,
    although I thank you for your interest.

  9. Your answers presume that it is not possible to upgrade to a paid blog on WordPress.

    Again, my question is for one who is familiar with the interaction of Website Toolbox and WordPress Blogs.

    Thank you!

    Sarah

  10. The answer to your questions are irrelevant as there is no plugin capacity on free hosted WordPress.com blogs.

    Moreover, we aren't allowed to post discussion threads to these technical support forums. We are focused only on WordPress.com support issues. Hence I tagged this thread for closure. You can conduct your discussion on your blog and/or in social networks.

  11. Your answers presume that it is not possible to upgrade to a paid blog on WordPress.

    I am presuming nothing. Like raincoaster I have answered questions here for over 7 years, and we know there is no upgrade you can purchase that will provide FTP access and the capacity to use plugins.

  12. For ratings see: http://en.support.wordpress.com/ratings/
    For polls see: http://en.support.wordpress.com/polls/
    For chatboxes/forums: At present there are no chatboxes or forums I am aware of that can be used on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. There is no FTP access and we cannot install plugins. However, you have three free workaround forum options: http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/04/23/wordpress-com-forum-options/

  13. If you REALLY want to know about that Plugin then go ask somewhere that can use that Plugin - like WordPress.ORG and quite arguing here - you are wasting your time and ours

  14. It IS possible to upgrade a blog so that you can use plugins on WordPress.com. It is called the VIP program, I believe it costs $6000 to set up, and $2600 per month. Outside of that, no WP.com blogs can use plugins.

  15. I think it is also an extra charge of $ 5,000 per Plugin to have the Plugin reviewed for safety and security
