    I just sign up with the site. When I say I am oblivious to all of this I'm so serious. I have a website, how can I make wordpress work for me with my website. I don't have blog, it's just my business website. I would like to do more with it. I don't know what wordpress is or how to use it for my site. I just keep hearing everyone talk about it. I really want to be updated on all things current with the internet and its use for my business but I don't know where to start how to do it. I want my site to be with the latest things and look like I know what I'm doing. LOL Please help. I've installed the latest version, but it's folder, does it install on your computer as a software? How do I add it to my site? I'm so confused here.

    WordPress is best described as software that runs NOT on your computer, but entirely "elsewhere". You use a web browser to interact with the WordPress software.

    This is completely the opposite of many web site building software products, where they do everything on your computer, then you just ship out the finished web site code (HTML, etc.) to a web site hosting computer "elsewhere".

    I think you would be better off to take a test drive, with the idea in mind of just learning, not making something permanent. On WordPress.com, where you can work with WordPress and build a web site, but probably not stay there. Once you are comfortable, and know that you want to use WordPress for your business website, then look at installing WordPress software on wherever your web site is currently located ("hosted").

    How does that sound?

    Please feel free to come back here, should you later decide to install WordPress. In the meantime, WordPress.com has its own Help pages and Support forum.
