    Hi im new to wordpress.com and I just got a new blog and found some plugins online. Now I follow the instructions but I dont see the plugins button. When I go to my dashboard I dont see plugins next to users and presentations. Why is this.

    WordPress.com doesn’t allow their users to upload plugins, but self-hosted blogs can. The plugins you would have found would have been for downloading wordpress from wordpress.org, getting a host and installing wordpress on your own server space. There are some ‘widgets’ that you can put in your themes, but only the ones that have been approved by staff and are not a security risk.

    Here is a good comparison of wordpress.com and wordpress.org in the FAQ.

    Hope that helps.

    If you are hosted with wordpress.com, it cannot be done. If you are self-hosted, there are 2 plugins (feedwordpress and autoblog) both which are found by searching in the wordpress.org/support/ forums. Nothing for us though….sorry.
