    my humble apologies. I was so new I had no idea that “.com” was different than “.org” I had googled the question and found posts here on topic without noticing the “.com” in the address bar.

    If you are tired of this kind of thing, you might distinguish yourself from the ‘mother ship’ – change the (W) logo on the top of the page. It is simply a very unimaginatively colorized version of the (W) logo on “.org”

    I would humbly suggest some kind of Web2.0, 3D logo that communicates: “this is NOT the WordPress.ORG site”

    You will not hear from me ever again (unless I get confused again, which is happening more often now that I am 60-something.)

    Well we have a sticky post at the head of this forum seting out the differences, and Staff have prepared a longer entry that appears on the front page of the support documentation.

    Best wishes with your wordpress.ORG install. :)
