I've set myself up a free blog, and would like to use a plugin to allow me to create subscriptions, and therefore a database of users.
Having looked through all the intro pages it seems that I'm missing the 'plugin' option from my admin dashboard.
I'm confused as to whether this is a feature of the free blog, or part of the bigger WordPress site where I would need to have the site hosted externally etc. (which is something I'm planning in the future).
Can anyone help clarify this for me please?
