    I am missing my plugin button on the left hand side menu. I am logged in under admin, and my blog is under wordpress.com, not .org... does that make a difference? if so is there a way for me to change it? because I really really need those plugins. PLEASE HELP :) Thank you!

    You can't use plugin's on WordPress.COM. It's an entirely different situation - see:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    WordPress.COM support is here:

    To use plugins, you'll have to set up a self-hosted site - see:

    Thank you so much! Is there anyway, that you know of, that I can use the template I purchased on wordpress.org and used on that blog, and use it on the wordpress.com site?

    I'm confused as to the above - I think you meant the opposite - but in short, WordPress.ORG does not sell anything or host any sites (so you have to pay for your own hosting if you use WordPress.ORG software). You also can't use a paid WordPress.COM theme anywhere else. I believe you can get a refund if it's within a certain time period - but you need to ask about that on the WordPress.COM forums.

    Yes, I meant the opposite like you said.

    Do you know of a good place for me to learn more about the wordpress.com abilities, that walks me through it in laymen's terms? I am pretty confused about all of this. Do you recommend any specific site to learn?

    Yep, they have great tutorials over on their site:

    What are you wanting to do with a plugin?
