Can anyone tell me how to find them? Thanks in advance. The blog I need help with is annblantonwriter.wordpress.com.

WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate. if you require plugins you hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/ and set up your own WordPress.org install. http://wordpress.org/ Then you can move your content from the free hosted WordPress.com blog into the WordPress.org install. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/ Author Posts The topic ‘no plugins on my dashboard’ is closed to new replies.
