    Hi I'm not sure which section to post, so sorry if I'm posting in the wrong one.
    Anyhow, I wonder if there is any way to get a wordpress.org dashboard without paying for a downloading host? Thx for answer

  2. Not clean on what you want. If you want free hosted WordPress, go to wordpress.com . WordPress itself is a free download from http://wordpress.org/download/ and there are recommended hosts: http://wordpress.org/hosting/

    Well, I've tried the wordpress.com dashboard, but I want a dashboard where I can add plugins. And I found out that it was only possible with the wordpress.org dashboard. But every time I try to download it, it only opens in some stupid jZip format. So basically, I wonder how i can open the wordpress.org dashboard

  5. You need to install WordPress, either on a webhost (my links above) or locally (esmi's link), as pointed out above. See http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

    WordPress downloads as a .zip archive, not a .jzip; that's a config issue on your PC.

    Thanks for all the help guys, I installed the local windows host and moved it ti disc c. But after the installation I can't find it. It says that it should be on start -> programs, but I can't find anything there. How can I open it?

    well, thge only thing I got on the C is a dsl-win-v3.4.0b folder, but I'm guessing it's the same thing?

    Ok I'm trying to understand it here. I downloaded the local host for windows, which was an xampp and called dsl-win-v3.4.0b, once I installed it i dragged the folder from zip to C. WHen I opened it on C the installer was running, so I installed it. Before the installation was complete a little note told me that the desktopserver was to be found on start -> prorams, but I can't find it there

    larsoon, it sounds like you have a WordPress.com site and want to add the WordPress.org dashboard to that. If this is the case, it doesn't work like that and nothing you do will make it work. Key differences between WordPress.com & WordPress.org are explained at http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Installing a local copy of WordPress will not add the WordPress.org dashboard to your WordPress.com blog.

    If you are using WordPress.com, not WordPress.org and need support, you need to ask your questions on the WordPress.com forums http://en.forums.wordpress.com/
