    Although the ‘excerpts’ on the right hand column, appear without any change to the central column. That is they are added anew, without interfering with the main blog.

    I guess, we’re talking about Asides, short posts that will be displayed in a distinct way. Sometimes they go in the sidebar. I am not aware of any possibility to do that on WP.com

    OK, it’s a plugin for wordpress.org blogs: http://codex.wordpress.org/Adding_Asides

    Ok, So I guess it is not possible to install plug ins at wordpress.com. Is that correct?

    And sorry for not understanding, but does this mean:

    ‘it’s a plugin for wordpress.org blogs’

    Blogs put up at wordpress.org (cause I cannot see a link) or does it mean just the use of wordpress on a host?

    Thanks

    1. It’s not possible to install plugins on wordpress.com
    2. “wordpress.org blog” means a self hosted blog with wordpress software (there’s no hosting service called wordpress.org, afaik)
    There’s a great sticky post on the entry page of this forum explaining (much better than I could ever do) the difference between wordpress.com and wordpress.org: it’s called WordPress.com or WordPress.org? The difference

    I received a comment from a moderator,

    that I could leave feedback for reasons for wordpress.com to include a plug in

    While searching for the feedback link, this is the only instruction I see, and I cannot find the feedback link.

    Use the feedback link in the upper right corner

    Sorry 2 B such high maintenance

    There is no feedback form in my blog.

    Support is currently closed

    I work in Internet cafes, and all the tabs now open, will not be there next time, so I am mailing you my ideas for plug ins that should be included in wordpress.com.

    Reasons to include these plugins:

    I imagine wordpress.com can attract learners to blogging. A learner is likely to want to explore new ideas, but at the same time not wish to mess up their blog. Asides offer this perfect opportunity to try new things, without interfering in the main theme of one’s blog.

    ………….

    The desire for some ecommerce.

    WordPress.com could either be a training ground for people to learn how to create an ecommerce shop, or it could be developed into an ecommerce portal, with the following plug in:

    ………….

    With a forum plugin, wordpress.com could become an host for communities, which generally means, a place where ideas are created!

    I am new to blogging, less than a week old.

    And my blogs are but in their infancy.

    We’ve talked about Asides in the past. It is certainly something I wish wp.com would include as a plug in. I believe they do work on the Sandbox theme but none of the others.

    There’s not really any point in posting things to the forum when they should be directed towards staff.

    @raincaster,
    I saw the email for support once, I will locate it. You say you think it can be done on sandbox. Do you know of any examples?
