I have this blog account on WordPress.com and it's the one where I didn't need to download any WordPress software on my computer to set up a blog. I just created my blog on WordPress.com site directly. Now, I discovered this software called WordPress 3.0.4 available for download on WordPress.org, with many extra features, options and plugins. My question is : Can I upgrade my current WordPress.com blog to this WordPress 3.0.4 version ? And if yes, will that affect my blog entries ? Lets say I download that software and click install. What will happen ? Will it upgrade my current WordPress.com blog page or not ? So what I'm actually asking is if I install that software, next time I go to my Dashboard will it be that of WordPress 3.0.4 with all the new features ?
I found an article on Google saying that a blog back-up is recommended first, before any upgrade but the instructions on how to do it, said something about the Plugin menu in Dashboard. Well, here is the problem...I don't have a Plugin menu in my Dashboard.
If anybody could illuminate me on this issue I would be very grateful. Thanks.
The blog I need help with is babybubu.wordpress.com.
