    There is no FTP access to sites hosted by wordpress.COM like http://pantophilia.wordpress.com/

    What is the exact URL starting with http:// of the site you referring to please?

    No. You are confusing wordpress.COM hosted sites and wordpress.ORG self hosted sites. WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Only self hosted wordpress.ORG installs have FTP access.

    If you are migrating from a self hosted WordPress.ORG site to WordPress.COM please see: Moving from a Self-Hosted WordPress to WordPress.com

    Will you please tell me exactly what you want to add, where you want to add it, and why?

    I´m not confusing anything. I have a WordPress-Website an I want to use a plug-in for language redirect. Therefore I need to add code to the wp-config.php file.
    Thats what the tutorial for WP-sites and WP-Plug-ins tells me.
    I nerver knew of a WordPress-org site and I never looked for Plug ins for WordPress org!!!!!

    This site http://pantophilia.wordpress.com/ is hosted by wordpress.COM.
    There is no FTP access and no blogger installed plugin capability on any wordpress.COM hosted sites like it. The only support documentation that applies is here https://en.support.wordpress.com/

    You can install the Google Translate Widget https://en.support.wordpress.com/internationalization/google-translate-widget/
    The Google Translate Widget allows you to automatically translate your site content into any language that is supported by Google Translate.

    So then it will be best to trash the hole site. I do not use it anyway, just have it to try out stuff. So I´m glad to have my domain with one.con, where these things do work.
    So farewell WordPress….
