    I must not understand the connection between wordpress.com and wordpress.org...

    Do the plugins on the WordPress.org site work on the WordPress.com site that I run?

    Why is there a .org and a .com?

    WordPress.com is a Multisite setup of WordPress.org. You have very little control over the plugins/themes you can use at WordPress.com, but you also don't have to pay for hosting/domain name.

    If you use WordPress.org, you pay for hosting and a domain name, but you have full control over what plugins and themes you use.

    @jhoward89 - you can't install your own plugins on .COM sites -

    See this for more info on the differences:
