    If you are new, the place to start is with the two stickies at the top of this forum.

    It is a pity that plugins cannot be added in the free WordPress platform. They could and should be allowed, especially in the upgrade packages on offer.

    Some organisations (namely not-for-profit) prefer to run the sites on WordPress.Com, mapping a domain they own. They do this because it is more economic and a lot easier to maintain.

    There are good reasons for this. Hosting WordPress (which allows for as many plugins as we like) has several drawbacks, especially with technical support if things do not run correctly and this in turn has an impact on content production. Many people spend more time trying to maintain than producing content. This is a serious point, because it has an impact on how people perceive WordPress functionality compared to Blogger, for example.

    So I would like to propose to WordPress a review of this issue, perhaps organising certain plugins, which are a “must have”. An automatic Translator, for example, is absolutely essential nowadays, in a global platform such as the Internet.

    Regards

    I’m really sorry, but you seem to have missed a fundamental grasp of how WordPress MU works and the security issues involved. I hope you will take the time to read the stickies at the top of this forum, which has already been suggested.

    If you have a specific plug-in that you would like to suggest, then please mention it in the Ideas forum.
