    Hello.

    I have the theme Auto Focus by Allan Cole for my new blog. I love it – but would like a little more feautres on the ‘blog’ pages. When I do a blog, I would like to tag clouds, twitter updates and instagram pics etc to be able to be viewed on the side like on the ABOUT page (and others) up the top.

    Do you understan what I mean? I am happy to pay for customisation I just have no idea where to start??

    THANKS!

    oh and also, how to i add plug-ins/widgets for things like instagram, a calander etc

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

    I can’t help with customization. In case you haven’t located the information at the links below:
    The theme description is here > http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/autofocus
    The live demo site is here > http://autofocusdemo.wordpress.com/

    WordPress.com does not allow you to upload plugins and widgets. You would need to setup WordPress software downloaded from WordPress.org and installed on a separate hosting account if you would like to have full control over the code. Go to http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ to learn more about the differences.

    On WordPress.com:

    In the AutoFocus theme, widgets are only displayed on pages, not posts or the home page. You can add a tag cloud to page from the Appearance → Widgets page in your blog dashboard.

    You can add Twitter updates to pages using the Twitter widget.

    One way to add a calendar is to embed a Google Calendar.

    WordPress.com doesn’t have an Instagram widget, but that is a good suggestion.

    If you do want all of those things and you want to be able to place them on the home page or the posts, then you would need to use a separate hosting account so you can get the customization control you need.

    Good catch. I didn’t check the tags in the sidebar. :(
