I have a question regarding plugins. I know that plugins are not compatible with the basic wordpress.com service. But what about the enhanced versions. Is it possible to develop and enable plugins for WordPress.com’s VIP or MU services?
I assume you can with MU and I know you can with VIP but the question is — do you qualify for VIP? If you’re getting about 500,000 hits per month, you might. And can you afford the several hundred $$ per month for it?
WordPress MU is what is used here although the version here is highly modified from the normal MU. It is a multi-user package to allow multiple blogs off of one set of files. If you are only wanting one blog, and are not setting up a blogging service then the standard version of wordpress would be what you want. http://wordpress.ORG/
