Upgrading to pro

  1. What are the advantages of upgrading to pro; can I for example install plugins?

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

  2. No you cannot. There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs. We cannot indtall plugins and third party theme and there is no upgrade that you can purchase that provides that. So if that's what you need hire a web host and set up a self hosted WordPress.com install. Please read this entry so you are crytsal clear on the differences between WordPress.com free hosted blogs and self hosted WordPress.org installs. WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org

  3. What are the advantages of upgrading to pro

    Upgrading provides domain mapping, VideoPress, Custom Design, 5GB Space Upgrade, and a No Ads upgrade. Nothing else changes as your blog is still free hosted by wordpress.com.

  4. Thanks for the quick replies. I thought that might have been the case. There's a few plug-ins that would be nice to have. The question is do I need them :)

  5. Let me guess what the plugins are. is one an SEO plugin? I have both free hosted and self hosted blopgs and I'm here to tell you if you think the SEO plugind will produce better SEO on an install than the SEO on identical content in a free hosted WordPress.com blog you are wrong. Anyway, what do the plugins you want do please? I'm asking because we have widgets and workarounds.
