    This support page:
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/scribd/
    says Scribd accounts are free and may be used to store PDF files. Happiness Engineers have referenced Scribd in recent posts.

    But … when I go to Scribd.com now, I find a site where accounts are not free, and which is not for social media file sharing anyway. So it looks like the old scribd is no more.

    Is this correct? Scribd is no longer an option for WP.com users?

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is t123123.wordpress.com.

    I have a free account on Scribd:

    Nope.
    Go to http://www.scribd.com/ and try for free.

    “Scribd started as a popular document-sharing service and expanded in 2013 to include an e-book subscription service.” — Tech Times

    OK, you’re right, the free document sharing is still there. They have their website set up to encourage paid subscriptions.

    I’m not sure I want to use it if they’re changing business models, but that’s a different question. Thanks for your help!
