No Plugin under Appearance (3 posts)

    I have a blog site hosted by WordPress (in WordPress.com domain).
    I noticed that I could not install plugin to my blog site.
    I did not see the Plugin sub-menu under Appearance.
    Is this because my site is hosted by WordPress (i.e. using generic
    Wordpress server)? How is the easier way to get the plugin
    functionality while hosted by WordPress? Do I need to run my
    own wordpress server in order to use plugin?

    Thanks,

    You cannot use plugins on a WordPress.COM site. So yes, you'd need to move to a self-hosted site.

    Also take a look at this page:

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

    It highlights the differences between WordPress.org and WordPress.com.
