Changing Permalink settings
The codex is for those who have hired web hosts and are self hosting WordPress.ORG installs. WordPress.ORG and WordPress.COM run on different software and what you point to cannot be done on a free hosted WordPress.COM blog. For clarity please read this entry on the front page of the WordPress.com support documentation very carefully.
WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org: The Differences
PS: I’m using free software via WordPress.com, not a download from WordPress.org. Also, I want to download a plug-in to my WordPress.com site … Is this possible? The plug-in is http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack/. Can I upgrade to the WordPress.org software and transfer my WordPress.org website with no loss of copy?
Please read > WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org: The Differences
There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs and we cannot install individual plugins or any themes into them The themes found on the internet are for wordpress.ORG installs which run on different software.
On free hosted wordpress.COM blogs we can only use the themes which have been coded to run on this multi-user software and made available to us here. > Appearance > Themes and no others. We cannot edit either themes or templates on free hosted wordpress.COM blogs. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/
If you wish to have complete control over a blog, the ability to upload themes and plugins, and to edit themes and templates then your option is to hire a web host and get a free software install from WordPress.ORG and self host it.
If you want to export your content out of WordPress.com free hosted blog and import it into a WordrPress.ORG install then please see here. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#moving-to-wordpress-org
