    I am having the same issue. I downloaded wordpress.org and it goes to showcase, themes, plugin ... then download on the right.(same as above) It does not take me to an area where the actual site is. I started using wordpress.com then realized I needed to use wordpress.org to get what I need. Is there anything you can help me with?

    WordPress.ORG does not host sites - you need to set up (pay for) hosting and a domain name and install WP on the server of your hosting company.

    I was trying to use the plugin on wordpress.com but it is not on the site. It instructs me to use wordpress.org. is there any way to use plugins on wordpress.org?

    Yes, but you have to set up a self-hosted WordPress.ORG site as described in that link above. WordPress.ORG does not offer hosting the same way WordPress.COM does - see:

    You should find simple and not complicated themes, with using simple administration.
