Plugins are the tools that really turn around your blogs into a miracle. When I started blogging and surfed around, I saw everywhere talks about wordpress plugins. But couldn’t find plugin option on my wordpres blog. If still you are wondering why you don’t have one then I must tell you that wordpress.com blogs don’t support plugins. Since wordpress is a platform where you create and edit your blog, these blogs are hosted by wordpress server itself. Now if you want that fabulous plugins and many other features to work on your blog you have to move from wordpress.com to wordpress.org. And since wordpress.org doesn’t support hosting therefore you have create a new blog using wordpress.org software installed to any other server like HostGator, Bluehost, DreamHost, Go Daddy etc. and the transfer your old wordpress.com blog to wordpress.org blog. Check out this video to get the idea.
The reason why it didn’t work properly in the end is that he didn’t install plugins. Check this out and you get to know how to install plugins and make your wordpress.org blog same as that your wordpress.com blog
Isn’t that great with wordpress.org, have fun.
