    Try this again.
    (If you are referring to wordpress.COM as “online software” – then you are in the wrong forum. This is wordpress.ORG and we support ONLY the software that you download from here and install on your own server/host.)

    im not sure what the diffance is?
    what sould i use???

    ok i figured out that i need to use wordpress.org
    but what do i do from this point?

    Maybe read the documentation…
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Main_Page

    ok thanks
    i just now figured out that wordpress.com and wordpress.org or 2 diffenrt sites.

    i guess wordpress.com is all online and wordpress.org is something you can download onto your server?

    is this tricky to setup? is there any way i can find a guy that wants to make 20.00 bucks to chat with me to get this on my host?

    1. Yes, they are different sites. (Actually, you don’t download “wordpress.org” but the software called “wordpress”)

    2. It depends on your skills and willingness to learn. The link I gave you above has detailed instructions about Installation.

    3. We don’t chat here. If you want paid support you post a contact address and those interesed will contact you in private. And FYI, they will tell you what their price is for the services rendered.

    cant put php on my site this sucks. just called my host!

    should i just use the wordpress on line?

    but then im going to have to have a funny name like

    wordpress.computergeeks and i cannot do computergeeks/blog?

    CG…
    Here’s a link to a “how to” guide.

    It will help you set up your own server. There are a few sticky points (mainly isp’s and their restrictions), however I found that you can in fact get it to work very nicely. There is one issue in the article that you need to be aware of…and that is when you go to log into wordpress for the first time.

    Here’s a link to the forum where issues and problem solving took place…

    When you go to log into your site for the first time this is how you have to type it in…”http://yourdomain.dnydns.org/wordpress/wp-login.php” without the quotes of course, also substitute dyndns.org with what ever port forwarding (dns) server you use.

    Hope this helps.

    >search engines will not pick that up to fast!

    Not true at all… Google indexes articles posted at our blog (installed on a subdomain) in less than 30 minutes or so.

    www.computergeeksonline.net/blog may be better than blog.computergeeksonline.net for online ads. Some ad companies allows publishers to use ad codes only at the root directory.

    >i see this site www.bomgar.com/blog has a word press blog and they are doing what i need! but wordpress is saying it cannot be done like that!

    All you have to do is to create a folder titled blog inside public_html and install WordPress inside it.

    Hey, what about READING the previous posts before posting?
