Thanks & sorry for being dumb :-) The blog I need help with is thebetfairfootballtrader.com.

If I were to transfer to another host, would I still have all the funtionality of the WordPress dashboard available to me?

It’s more or less the same, but you’ll need to add things like stats packages, and various bits and bobs depending on what you want to do with your blog.

You will have to find and download similar widgets or plugins to gain the full capability available here. As far as the basic dashboard, it is nearly the same except for the .COM specific sections.
