    HI!

    I decided to install my first plugin, but I cannot find the Plugins directory in the Dashboard menu. On the right side of the page i see 'Settings' and 'Users', but no 'Plugins'.

    Sounds like a silly problem, please help me to solve!

    THANK YOU

    I'm new and experiencing the same issue. All screen shots suggest that there should be a 'Plugins' section but this does not exist on the dashboard. How do we add it?? Can someone advise??

    Thanks in advance.....

    where are your blogs hosted? keep in mind that blogs hosted at wordpress.com wont have a plugins page.

    How do we add it??

    you dont, its just there.

    http://www.path-to-your-blog.com/wp-admin/plugins.php

    where path-to-your-blog == the url of your wordpress blog.

    Thanks for the response, so basically are you saying any blog hosted on WordPress cannot use a plugin??

    Or is there an alternaive way to add a plugin for these blogs?

    thanks.

    wcff1974, once again, what is the url to your blog?

    basically are you saying any blog hosted on WordPress cannot use a plugin??

    i said what I said -- blogs hosted at wordpress.com .. and thats correct, and no there is not.

    is your blog hosted at wordpress.com?

    Yes Whoami,

    My blog is hosted at wordpress.com.

    my url: http://www.oledtelevision.wordpress.com

    I want to add and manage adsense quickly and easily on my blog, without having to go the convetional route, i.e access google, get code and paste. Can you suggest an alternative way, other than moving the blog off wordpress.com

    thankyou.

    firstly, and most importantly, you cant use adsense on free wordpress.com blogs

    letting people that are using a free service get paid by ads would be mighty un-business-savvy.

    for future reference, wordpress.com support is offered @ http://en.forums.wordpress.com/
