    Are there significant differences in the features I can access between the downloaded self-hosted version of WordPress and the wordpress.com hosted version (upgraded, of course)?

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

    Yes. You may want to read this WordPress.com vs WordPress.org We do not provide support for local installs of WordPress here at WordPress.com. That support is found on these forums http://wordpress.org/support/

    Thanks, timethief. That comparison is just what I needed. There seem to be no material feature differences, just hosting and support differences.

    Oh no, I’d much rather use wordpress.com. I was just making sure that there would not be customization features that I would somehow be missing compared to the downloaded/self-hosted version.

    Thanks,
