    Hi

    I have a wordpress blog hosted with hostgator and installed via them. I dont have all of the defaultwidgets listed here:

    [ link fixed ]
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/

    And my dashboard only displayes under Appearance: Themes Widgets Menus Header Background Editor.
    How can i get all the default widgets, it is mostly the Bandpage and the Follow Blog widget I am in need of right now.
    I would deeply appreciate your help!

  2. I dont have all of the defaultwidgets listed here:

    Nor would you as that's a WordPress.COM document you are referring to and self-hosted WordPress.ORG installations such as yours doesn't come with most of those.

    See http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ for an explanation between the two.

    Many of those are available as an optional plugin add-on but you'll need to locate and find them yourself.

    Is there a specific widget you're looking for?

    Edit: Doh! More coffee for me.

    it is mostly the Bandpage and the Follow Blog widget I am in need of right now.

    The WordPress.COM Follow Blog widget isn't available but the Jetpack plugin comes close with the subscriptions widget. I'm not sure about the Bandpage one but this may be it.

    Thank you for clearing that up. I am looking for the Bandpage widget and the Follow Blog or similar to that.

    Hi Jan

    Thanks. So I will look into the Jetpack stuff and bandpage.
    Is it possible to change to a wordpress.com without loosing my content?
