Adding a plug-in
I can’t seem to figure out how to add a plug-in I downloaded to help customize background images for each page. Is this a premium feature? I can find the plug-in page, but not the ‘add’ button every tutorial keeps saying should be there. Just wondering if that is not a free feature or if I am just missing it.
The blog I need help with is nosweeternameblog.wordpress.com.
There is no FTP access to any wordpress.com sites. WordPress.com sites have some built in plugins http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/. However, if you are reading anything that makes you think that we bloggers can install plugins, advertising, custom themes or third party themes on sites hosted by wordpress.COM, then you are mistaken/misinformed. We have never had that ability. You are confusing wordpress.COM hosted blogs and wordpress.ORG installs on paid hosting.

customize background images for each page
re: wordpress.com hosted sites and custom design
See here for Custom design – Frequently Asked Questions http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions
See here for details on purchasing an annually renewable upgrade https://wordpress.com/pricing/ that contains a custom design upgrade required for CSS editing.
Note 1: Once you have the required upgrade you can use this link https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/css-customization#postform so you can create a thread that will appear in the CSS Forum where you will get the help you need with CSS editing.
Note 2: You can also post there prior to purchasing an upgrade to get an answer to whether or not what you want to do can be accomplished via CSS editing.
Oh I see! I was confused and looking at something for wordpress.org and didn’t realize! Thank you for clarifying!
Do you know of a way then that I could change the background for each individual page? Is that a feature available? I can’t seem to figure it out.
Please read what I said here https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/adding-a-plug-in-5?replies=4#post-2873329
Will do! Thank you!
re: purchasing upgrades
WordPress.com provides free blogs and hosts them free of charge. There are no bandwidth charges. All WordPress.com blogs come with 3000 megabytes (~3 GBs) of space for storing uploaded files and images. Free features are listed here https://en.wordpress.com/features/
We have 4 different plans: free, personal, premium and business. All hosting is free regardless of which plan you choose. You can view all wordpress.com plan features here https://wordpress.com/pricing/ Add a plan for each of your sites here: http://store.wordpress.com/plans/.
There are no monthly payment plans and no bulk deal upgrades. We are billed annually. Also note that purchase orders are not accepted. We must pay for all upgrades in full at the time of purchase.
WordPress.com does not accept domain transfers but mapping an existing domain is possible. http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/ The domain or mapping of any existing domain URL is included in the pricing for a personal upgrade, a premium and a business upgrade.
Premium upgrades do not include any premium themes which are all individually priced one time upgrades. The Business upgrade includes access to all premium themes but also note that there is no e-commerce capability under any plan here https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/small-business-website-1?replies=2#post-2804631.
Make sure you read the comparison very closely do you know exactly what the restrictions and limitations on WordPress.COM blogging are: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

WordPress.com does not provide an email service for blogs on their sub domains or on custom domains. Please see these support docs
What domain mapping does is providing a seamless redirect to the very same content under the new domain URL when a person clicks the old URL .wordpress.com to the original content. It can take up to 72 hours for domain propagation to take place throughout the internet but it doesn’t usually take that long. https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/
