Why no plugin option?

  1. In my blog on the left hand side of the screen, there is no option for adding a new plugin. In all my blogs before this I've had the option to download plugins by selecting add new, why is there no option here and how do I get plugins in my blog?

    The blog I need help with is snakesonjefferson.com.

  2. Plug Ins are for use with WordPress.org self installed software.

    WordPress.com is a different system that doesn't allow plug ins.

  3. @snakesonjefferson
    There is no FTP access to free hosted wordpress.com blogs and we cannot install individual plugins into free hosted wordpress.com blogs. This is for security reasons as this is a multi-user blogging platform. Likewise we cannot install any themes from the internet as they are for wordpress.ORG istalls which run on different software.
