    I run several WP sites and the Plugin button is on the left side menu on every one of them. I never saw a WP that didn't have one, what version of Wordpress are you using?

    Who don't you go for the "you host" option?

    You mean you registered at wordpress.com? Of course there's no option to install plugins. You need to buy a domain, a hosting. Then install wordpress, there you will see plugins section.

    Go get the $4.95 hosting plan with HostGator or the Baby Croc which I use. Easy C-Panel to use etc ... No FTP needed...tons of others but why waste your time.

    If you don't have money to pay for hosting.

    You can try free hosting out there. I recommend freehostia


    Then install wordpress there. For sure, you can find the plugin menu on the left side :bandit:

    If you want to make money somehow, then just invest in a domain and hosting. The domain costs about $8 per year. And hosting you can get as low as $5 per month. I am sure you can spare that. If you don't know how to do those things or with what provider, just ask around here. Everybody started once.

    First, you have to get Domain and Hosting then you need to proceed to install WP.

    Totally agree. If your blogs get bigger you can upgrade to a paid package as well.

    Go to YouTube and look up a guide on how to do so. They have some pretty easy to follow, step-by-step guides there.
