  • I don’t have a Plugin Panel in my Dashboard. How do I add it so I can upload and use plugins? I’m using the 2010 theme for my blog. Thank you!

  • If you are hosted at, you can’t.

    How can I fix this? I just registered a domain but that didn’t seem to do it. Thanks!

    Did you get a chance to read any of the page that I linked to above? That should answer a lot of your questions. Particularly this section: Cons

    * We provide 100+ themes (and adding more every day) which you can modify and edit the CSS, but you cannot run a custom theme*
    * You can’t hack the PHP code behind your blog*
    * You can’t upload plugins

    * The VIP program on for high-traffic and high-profile sites allows you to run custom themes, custom PHP code, ad code, and WordPress plugins.

    This may be of help as well.

    New To WordPress – Where to Start

    – just to clarify things, primarily because you did not respond to my suggestion that you might be hosted on, is your blog a free wordpress blog hosted by, or did you install wordpress on your own host? (Godaddy, Bluehost, etc…)

    If you’re having this problem on a self hosted wordpress site, it could be that the Plugins option is turned off. On a network install, go to the Network Admin pages, choose Settings, and under Network settings you’ll see (at the bottom):

    Menu Settings
    Enable administration menus Plugins

    This is unchecked by default (I believe). Check it and your site administrators will be able to choose which plugins to activate (from the list that you, as a network administrator, have installed.)
