    We cannot use plugins at wordpress.COM. Plugsins are for self-hosted blogs only.

    Because wordpress.COM is a multi-user platform and we all share the same underlying files. That means that if you were to upload a plugin that had an error or a security flaw in it – on purpose or not – it could conceivably bring down all the blogs here. It is a security concern. It is the same reason we cannot directly use flash, iframes, forms or javascript here.

    Dumb people are not allowed to use plugins. It’s as simple as that. When you’re smart, you get to wear the big girl panties and use plugins.

    You have two options: keep re-reading this thread until it sinks in or pay my consulting fee of $150 per hour, three-hour minimum. You can use the Paypal button on my blog to advance the $$$
