Changing interface

  1. I would like to use my site as a web interface, instead of a blog appearence. Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. This is all semantics and blog structure.

    A blog is a website. A blog is a post based website designed for interactive communication. As the posts are frequently updated and appear on the front page of the site it's very attractive to search engines.

    What most people call a website is merely a page based website that functions as a one way noticeboard. As the structure is page based and as pages are for static content that rarely changes, and as pages do not have RSS feeds it is not as attractive to search engines as a post based blog structured site is.

    Any WordPress blog can be restructured from being post based to being page based - no upgrade is required. For greater clarity read:

  3. We frequently get people here who think they can design their own sites and themes. This is not possible here at WordPress.COM but it is possible if you hire a web host and set up a WordPress.ORG install.

    The only themes we can use on free hosted blogs are found here There is no FTP access to free hosted blogs for security reasons and we cannot:
    upload any third party themes,
    create child themes,
    create our own themes,
    edit templates,
    create own own layouts,
    or use stylesheets from other themes.

    There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes that.

    On one hand, none of the characteristic "blog" features like categories, tags, authors, dates, etc. can be removed from a free hosted blog, without purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade and doing the required CSS editing.

    On the other hand, one can edit a theme free of charge.
