Author Posts May 11, 2012 at 4:11 pm #888123 waduncanMember 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. May 11, 2012 at 4:29 pm #888322 timethiefMember 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/ May 11, 2012 at 4:58 pm #888333 waduncanMember Thanks, timethief. That comparison is just what I needed. There seem to be no material feature differences, just hosting and support differences. May 11, 2012 at 5:00 pm #888334 timethiefMember You’re welcome. I have never set up a local install of WordPress but another Volunteer, thesacredpath has experience with them and he may be able to provide more deatil. May 11, 2012 at 5:04 pm #888335 waduncanMember 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.
