Suburbia, Contact Form, Domain Redirect

  1. I am currently setting up my blog. It will be used as my political campaign site (I'm running for Mayor of a small community). I chose the Suburbia theme. I am running into a few problems.

    1. I do not see a "plug in" option so I cannot add a "contact me" form. I prefer that to putting out my email address. Is there a way to resolve this? If so, how?

    2. I purchased the $99 bundle that includes domain redirct. I also have a web host, BlueHost. I have tried everything I know (which is not much) to redirect my WordPress blog (shanahanformayor.wordpress.com) to shanahanformayor.com. It does redirect, but my site is not showing up. How do I resolve this?

    I do appreciate all help and feedback. Thank you in advance.

    The blog I need help with is shanahanformayor.com.

  2. 1. There are no plugin tabs on free hosted WordPress.com blogs as there is no FTP access and we cannot install individual plugins or third party themes into them. Those found on the internet are for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software.

    I purchased the $99 bundle that includes domain redirct. I also have a web host, BlueHost.

    You purchased a domain name and domain mapping upgrade in that bundle. It is used to map from a .wordpress.com subdomain to a domain. Please see here:

    Please read this because WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate and run on different software. WordPress.com vs WordPress.org: The Differences

    Do you have a WordPress.org install set up that's being hosted by Blue Host? Please clarify exactly what you are trying to achieve.
