    Can someone give me a step-by-step analysis of how to install plug-ins? I have looked all over the internet and can’t find one way that works. I don’t have the plug-ins tab on my dashboard so I can’t do it through there. How am I supposed to do it?

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

    1) get a WordPress.org blog with paid hosting, at a cost of about $120 a year.
    2) Buy and install a theme
    3) Buy and connect a domain name.

    Now you can use plugins.

    Plugins cannot be used on WordPress.com blogs for security reasons.

    Also, we have answered this question at least five times today. Always do a search of the forum before asking something.

    No worries. For some reason we’ve had this question six times today alone.

    Very simple answer to this – it’s summer, no one has anything better to do.

    Ha! Probably correct. They should all go read our blogs then, right?

    Exactly. I just started a blog yesterday and I got over 100 views today. This is probably the reason.

    I have a question about my earlier though, how do make a blog on WordPress.org I don’t see the option to do that?

    WordPress.org isn’t a web host. You have to buy hosting elsewhere, then install software from WordPress.org. Then blog.

    O I see, so I could by a WordPress.com domain and just download the software from .org

    I have paid for my own domain, do I still not get to use plug ins? I am trying to use paypal.
    Sorry if this is an obvious question, I am really struggling to figure this out.
