    I am unable to add either a ‘contact form’ or a ‘contact widget’ to any page. per instructions ‘drag to the sidebar’ but the entire ‘available wdiget’ list appears greyed out and doesn’t not get dragged anywhere. Are these only available with paid accounts?

    You are using the Twenty Eleven theme, which offers one main sidebar on posts, a showcase sidebar which appears below the entry, and three sidebars in the footer.

    You can apply the regular sidebar or the showcase sidebar to a page by selecting the right page template in the page’s Page Attributes dropdown.

    Does that cover everything you want to do? If you need more types of sidebars, you may want to look at other themes, as widget areas are controlled by your theme.
