I currently have a blog at WordPress.com, but am considering a move. I have a little experience from years ago of creating web pages from scratch, so this might be an interesting adventure.
I have several reasons for moving, but a big one is WP.com has changed their scripts to require Google scripts for creating posts. I use NoScript, and if I do not allow these scripts, much of the functionality is lost. When I asked about this in the forum at WP.com, I was told the scripts are for their geotagging feature and these issues are side-effects. I have no plans on using geotagging and I guess I hesitate to have that script running when I do not know what exactly it is doing.
If I install WP on my computer and use it to create pages/posts, will I be using the same tools as wp.com, thus requiring these scripts?
I hope this is not a silly question, but it is important to me before I take the plunge. I am eager to give this a try, having more control of my website.
Thank you very much.
