    Hi, I was wondering why wordpress.com doesn’t allow plugins…
    I’ve heard that’s because security reasons, but I’m very lay to understand that exactly.
    So, if there’s any possibility, my suggestion would be that, instead of users, the wordpress team add some useful popular plugins.
    I’d love to use Fotomoto on my blog, but definetely am not disposed to host my own site…

    The blog I need help with is danielkons1.wordpress.com.

    Also, don’t forget the ideas forum, where you can discuss your suggestion with the WordPress.com community: https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/ideasi

    My observation on Plug-in’s – we have a lot more Widgets than a standard WordPress.ORG theme – most of the Widgets started as Plug-in’s – – we also have several themes that seem to have the functions of Plug-in’s built into the theme (I am thinking of some of the Photo themes)

    Good point auxclass.
    In fact, I may have not expressed quite well…
    Instead of a plugin, my suggestion would be to add a Fotomoto widget to wordpress.com

    I don’t know what it is, but if it’s like Instagram, just try adding the feed to a Flickr widget.

    It’s not like Instagram, it’s kind of a print shop at your own site actually. Very specific.
