I am testing out the features of wordpress using a free mysite.wordpress.com account. But there are somethings that i cant seem to change and looking in help files it seems i need to have a non-hosted site to be able to do them as the involve editing .php files.
If i paid the $17 for a mysite.com address, would i be able to edit the .php files or is this only open to those who download the code for use on their own webservers?
Please read this support entry prepared by Staff so you are clear on all the differences between free blogs being free hosted on this multiuser blogging platform, where all blogs wearing the same theme are using the same template, and only Staff can access and edit the underlying php files, and free software installs for self hosting from WordPress.ORG.
