You need help from someone having access to

the email address mentioned

provided further assistance.

Please confirm so that I can route your request.

You I have forwarded your query to

Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

There's a walk through here that might help?

I see you've also posted in the forums for the

Again go to contact us page, now you will be


redirected to wordpress.com engineers. They
will tell you where to paste that code.

The author of that site is


owlandpussycat17. Try signing out of
WordPress.com and signing in again
with that username.

I've sent a password reset to the email on

An email address is the key to an account with


WordPress.com. WordPress.com staff will not
reveal the email address linked to a
WordPress.com account. Sorry.

You can try to reset the password for


boulderback2014 user
from https://wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action
=lostpassword page and see if any of your
emails receive the password reset email.

That usually means that you're logged in


with a different account than owns that site.
I'm seeing mrwyte as a username for an
author there.

Could that be the username you'll want to


use as a login? Try signing out of
WordPress.com and signing in again with
that username.

domain included in the renewal plan

If you have purchased your domain name with


WordPress.com, then yes, it's included in the
renewal plan.

Domain and hosting for a year

This includes a domain and the hosting for a


year, not just the cost of the domain name.
While you can buy a domain for a lower cost,
the fee here is for the hosting and site
management as well.

I hope that helps to explain the difference! Let

use wordpress.org
For using WordPress.org you will need to buy
domain and hosting from a 3rd party.

Difference between com and org

WordPress.com and WordPress.org are also


different which can be confusing.
WordPress.com provides managed hosting
using a modified version of the software
provided by WordPress.org.

Any WordPress site, not hosted on


WordPress.com is using WordPress.org.
WordPress.org provides a free software which
anyone can download and use for free at any
web hosting company.

your browser cache and then try again.
See the page at

for instructions related to your browser cache.

To me, it seems to be a browser issue.

1. Check if you are running one of the browsers


and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/
If not, please try upgrading.

2. If you are running one of the browsers and


versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/

(a) Try clearing your browser’s cache


(b) Make sure that you have both third-party
cookies enabled and JavaScript enabled

3. If you are using an IE browser in compatibility


mode please disable that mode.

4. Try using another browser.

And ask them to reset your password as your


website is hosted by them, not by
Wordpress.com

What you are trying to do is possible using


self-hosted WordPress.org on an external
hosting provider.

You can contact the support team of your


hosting provider to seek help solving your
problem.

I believe you are using a WordPress.org


website hosted with a third party (e.g.,
Bluehost, Siteground). This support is
exclusively for WordPress.com website
users, and we are not able to provide
support to WordPress.org users, as the
structure of these sites are very different.

Suggest you visit the support forums at


https://wordpress.org/support/ as they
provide specialized support to
WordPress.org sites.

WordPress.com and WordPress.org are


different which can be confusing. You can
learn the difference between both at
https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-or
g/

https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_vs_
WordPress.com

Please reply to this if you have any


questions.

WordPress.com has no access to the servers


hosting your website.
At Bluehost, you must be having an access to
FTP. You can use FTP to modify the offending
file.
You can use a software like FileZilla to connect
to your site using FTP. FTP details will be
provided by your web host.

I never got the confirmation email from

To ensure that you receive further notices from
Gravatar, please also add these email
addresses to your email service's address book

After you've done that, please try resetting your

If you are using some personal or company's

TRANSFER DOMAIN REGISTRATION

https://en.support.wordpress.com/transfer-dom
ain-registration/

Only the WordPress.com account which


registered the domain name in the first place is
able to transfer the domain name to another
WordPress.com account or to another domain
registrar.

Do you have access to the WordPress.com


account which registered this domain name?
TRANSFER DOMAIN

I am sorry but WordPress.com doesn't transfer


the domains irrespective of the state it is in. You
may be able to obtain it for your use if the
owner of the blog agrees to transfer it to you.

WordPress.com can not provide you with the


contact information of blog owners.

Suggest you try to contact the owner of the


domain you are interested in using any contact
information or comment box on the site, you are
interested in.

delete the blog and use the same name

Deleting a site permanently removes it and


you’ll never be able to re-use its
WordPress.com address (such as
yourgroovysite.wordpress.com).

I'm sorry, but recovering that is not possible. I'm


sorry you missed the warnings before deleting!

https://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/

You can register another blog with a similar


name.
http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog
/
Sites already deleted by their authors two or
more years ago may become available again, if
they present no username or other technical
conflicts.

Sorry, once deleted you can neither recover the


content nor reuse its blog address.

If you delete your blog, you won't be able to


reuse its name. Instead, create your new
WordPress.com account using your new email
address. When you new WordPress.com
account is active, use the guide at
https://en.support.wordpress.com/transferring-a
... page to transfer your blog to the new
account.

WordPress.com provide the infrastructure i.e.


hosting space, domain name, managed
WordPress software, troubleshooting if you are
facing some issue with your website etc.
1. Upgrade your account to the business plan.
2. Add your domain name to your site
3. Choose a theme for your site
4. Search for the plugins which can meet your
requirement
5. Configure the plugins
6. Set up the workflow for all three types of
users you want.
7. Check if everything is in order
8. Integrate your social media with your website
9. Do the search engine optimization for your
website

Google adsense

I am sorry but Google Adsense is not allowed


on WordPress.com hosted sites. You can try
other monetization methods. See the

no views on my blog

Google bots will crawl only if your sites have a

It is normal.
Google bots will crawl only if your sites have a
minimum number of views.
And for people to view your blog, you have to
publicise.

As long as your site is online, Google will find it


with its Googlebot. Crawling is the process by
which Googlebot discovers new and updated
pages to be added to the Google index.
So it doesn't matter what URL or domain you
use, Google will know about your site. Just be
aware that it will only find a domain that was
active.

how to insert donate button

You have to create a link with PayPal or some


company which will receive money on your
behalf.
Then you can add that link in the text widget as
a payment button

Suggest you check the guide at


https://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/view-a
ll/ page.
Paypal drop down menu

One can't use the drop-down button on


WordPress.com, only the basic donation button.
No upgrade changes this.
See: https://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/

The reason is that certain types of code are not


permitted for security reasons. Someone could
potentially insert malware into the button code
using the form coding, which would affect ALL
WordPress.com sites, not just yours. That's why
no widget or button using that code will work on

domain mapping
You can use any plan to map a domain name
you already own. Start by upgrading to a plan
via https://wordpress.com/plans

Once you've upgraded, add the domain. There


should be a mapping credit to allow that to be
added at that stage. Full directions for this are
at https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/m
ap-existing-domain/

The name servers are these-


NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
NS2.WORDPRESS.COM
NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

As a note, adding the domain via the Domains


menu first does default to the Premium plan.

You can check the availability of the domain


name
from https://wordpress.com/domains page.

Once you are sure about the availability of the


domain name, go
to https://wordpress.com/plans and buy the
personal plan first then go
to https://wordpress.com/domains/add to buy
the domain name (cost included in the plan
price).

If you try to buy the domain name first, the


system would want you to upgrade to the
premium plan as that's the default system
settings.

You can add another domain name by paying


the domain cost plus domain mapping charges
to an existing site on a paid plan.

The $13 domain mapping is only available to


those who already have a plan and want to add
another domain. You can add the personal plan
instead of the premium, if you like, but a plan is
required to map a domain. You can add that
from here: https://wordpress.com/plans/

"Each paid plan comes with a free domain


credit you can use to either register a new
domain or map one you already own".

Standalone domain mapping plan has been


discontinued by WordPress.com. You need to
upgrade to a paid plan in order to use your
domain name. See https://wordpress.com/plans

WordPress.com no longer offers domain


mapping separately for new sites. You'll now
need to add a personal plan at minimum to use
a custom domain.
https://wordpress.com/pricing/

Sorry that this isn't available any longer!

You can choose personal plan also.


Go here- https://wordpress.com/pricing/
Select personal plan and proceed and later
click I own a domain

tan
Do you already have a plan added to that
account? If not, you'll want to add at least the
personal plan to have domain mapping
available: https://wordpress.com/pricing/

You can use it with the personal plan as well.

Go to https://wordpress.com/plans and then


upgrade to the personal plan.

Once you have upgraded, follow the process


mentioned at
https://en.support.wordpress.com/map-existing-
domain/ page to map the domain name to
your WordPress.com website.

Hello,

You will need a business plan for that.

See this- https://wordpress.com/plans/

With the premium plan, you can use any


premium or free theme available at
https://wordpress.com/themes/ page, while with
the personal and the free plan you can use any
free theme from the themes repository.

I hope this helps. Please reply to this if you

Theme on a business plan


Are you using a paid plan of WordPress.com?

Great. In that case, use the live chat to connect


with the Happiness Engineers team and they
should be able to help you install this theme.

If you are logged into the account using which


you purchased the business plan, you can live
chat with the happiness engineers team
from https://wordpress.com/help/contact/ page.

See https://en.support.wordpress.com/live-chat/

Theme from wordpresss.com outside

If you are hosting anywhere else other than

You can't upload any theme but you can use

These themes are available with the free,
personal and the premium plans. While on the
free and personal plans you need to buy the
premium themes, if you are on the premium
plan you can choose any premium theme
without paying extra for it.
If you chose to upgrade to the business plan,
you can use any theme (downloaded from an

annual charges

As an alternative, you can use WordPress


from https://wordpress.org on a local system of
yours and create the prototype you need.

Sorry, but as per WordPress policy, you have to


pay annual charges upfront.
There is a 30 days refund policy in case you are
not happy with the plan.

I am sorry but there is no grace period for


payment. You need to pay upfront. However,
there is a refund period of 30 days if you don't
like what you get.

Sorry, You have to pay annually as there is no


provision for monthly payments.

There is a 30 days refund policy in case you are


not happy with the plan.

It is in US Dollars.

Every paid plan at WordPress.com (see


https://wordpress.com/pricing/) with a free
domain credit. You can use this to register a
new domain name or use a domain already
registered somewhere else (see
https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map
-existing-domain/).
dont want to pay annual charges

I completely understand since I also a


WordPress.com user like you. I'm just here to
provide the possible help and guidance to other
users.

I my point of view you have two option:

Move to a self-hosted WordPress.org where


you will get full flexibility to install what you
want. In this option wordpress is free and you
will only need to pay hosting and domain (check
bluehost.com).

The other option is more expensive, you can


buy a business plan and you will get a 30 days
refund period in case you don't like the service.

Lost password

. I'm seeing "bryoak4" as the username for the


post author. Can you try logging in using that as
the username instead of entering an email
address?

If you have access to the old email address,


using the username in the lost password form
will send you a reset to pick a new password.

There are some other account recovery steps


here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/account
-recovery/

Most require you to be able to access that


email, however. If you can't login, starting a new
blog would be the next step.

Did you set up two factor authentication when


you had access that to your account? You may
not have added a phone number at the time.
I entered the username into the lost password
page. If you had set up SMS, you'd get a text.

Have you read the page

delete account
It's to safeguard users. If you delete your
account, tomorrow someone else can register
with the same username and impersonate you.

If you remove all your personal information, the


only thing that would be left are dead
usernames and other non-identifying things. I
assume they are left dead rather than letting
you remove them so that your username and
identity can not be taken by others.

As on the link above, this simply isn't something


they offer. I'm a community member, so I have
no power to make adjustments on this policy.

recover deleted site

Sorry that you missed the warnings while


deleting the site. Deleting a site permanently
removes it and you’ll never be able to re-use its
WordPress.com address (such as
yourgroovysite.wordpress.com). I'm sorry, but
recovering that is not possible.

See this:
https://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/

Sorry that you've deleted a site domain!


Deleting is permanent, and that domain might
not be available again. Once deleted the site
address becomes unavailable for at least 2
years.

Sites already deleted by their authors two or


more years ago may become available again, if
they present no username or other technical
conflicts. If that site address isn't available when
you try to use it, it can't yet be reused.

Fortunately, there is an infinite supply of unused


blog addresses, so our policy should not limit
your address selection. Note that if you add a
custom domain for use with your blog, the
original ‘wordpress.com’ domain/URL is never
visible to your readers for as long as the custom
domain is used on your blog.

Sorry that the domain you want isn't available!

Recover content from deleted site

So sorry that it happened to you. Please try to

change the username

Please follow the steps mentioned on below


page to change your username.
https://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-
username/

change URL/ new WordPress.com address

https://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Sit
e_URL

If you change your blog address, link to your old


address, including search engine results, will be
broken unless you add a Site Redirect upgrade
(http://support.wordpress.com/site-redirect/).

1. Go to My Site → Domains and click on your


WordPress.com address. There, click on Edit
Site Address, and you’ll be taken to your WP
Admin dashboard.

2. On the My Blogs page, move your mouse


over the address you would like to change. You
will see a Change Blog Address option appears
(you will only see this option for blogs that you
own).

3. Click the Change Blog Address link.

4. A screen with additional details and warnings


will appear. Read the information carefully and
make sure this is the action you wish to take.

5. Enter the new address you wish to use.


Verify that this new address is spelled correctly

6. Next, you will be offered the opportunity to


register a matching username (the name you
use to log in) and have two options if you
decide to do so:

6.1 You can change your current username. If


you choose this option, you will not be able to
revert back to the original username, and it can
affect profile URLs for other services such as
Gravatar.

6.2 You can create a new username and


account. You will need a separate email
address to choose this option. If you create a
new account, both your current account and the
new account will be added as administrators to
the blog.

7. The final option on this screen allows you to


discard your current address. This option will
permanently disable the address and you will
not be able to reuse it. Only select this option if
you are sure you will not use the address again.
If you want to redirect traffic to the new blog,
you can keep the address and purchase the
Site Redirect upgrade. Note: if you do not select
this option, you will see your original address
under My Sites.

8. Once you have completed the form, click


Continue, and you will be prompted with a
summary of the changes you requested.
Review this page and click on Continue again
to change your blog address.

Once you’ve completed all of the steps above,


your blog will be using a brand new
WordPress.com address.

Here is a link with images -


https://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blo
g-address/

You can do this if you purchase a site redirect.


That will take the old URL to the new one
without a hassle. Without that, there would just
be a note that the author deleted the previous
site. https://en.support.wordpress.com/site-redir
ect/

Hope this helps!

Blog at WordPress.com remove footer credit

If your site is on our Business plan, you have


the option to remove the footer credit
altogether. Sites on any plan other than
Business are required to keep the footer credit
intact. On those sites, you may choose from
one of the alternative wordings or the
WordPress icon.

To find these options, head to My Sites →


Customize and select the site you want to
change. In the Site Identity section, look for the
Footer Credit menu. Choose the option you
would like to use — the Customizer will let you
preview how each one looks on your site — and
select Save & Publish to make the update.
Let me know if you need more help!

optimize the image

WordPress tries to optimize the images you


upload on your site. This could sometimes
result in a lower quality of the image.

As an alternative, you can upload your images


on a site like Flicker and use the links on your
website.

You can optimize your images before


uploading. That way WordPress will not have
much to do with your quality.

edit the images


Please see how to edit your images right here -

https://en.support.wordpress.com/images/editin
g-an-image/

You might have to change the size of some of


the images before they're uploaded to the
media library. Please consider loading time,
however, the larger your images/files the longer
your pages may load.

increase the size of image

When you click on a photo in your post/page


editor - you should see an option to increase
their size pop up (+ button). You should also be
able to change their alignment by using one of
the available options.

themes of .com to .org

Themes licensed for use with WordPress.com


hosted sites can not be downloaded for use on
WordPress.org sites. However, you can contact
the theme developers to see if they offer the
same theme for WordPress.org sites as well.

leave the blog permanently

You can transfer the website to another


WordPress.com account. See the process
mentioned at

If you have already done that process, you can


leave the blog permanently by following the

You can see the set up instructions for that


slider here:
https://wordpress.com/theme/olsen/setup

If you tag posts or edit them to add a tag, you


can then specify that tag in the featured
content. It might be easiest to tag them as
"featured," but that's not required.

Make sure that the posts you want to appear


there have a featured image set up as well!
Featured Images need to be at least 720 pixels
wide. If you tag a post to be used in the
Featured Content slider, the recommended
image dimensions are 1010 by 545 pixels.
remove wordpress in the domain / remove
wordpress in the url

You can choose any paid plan


from https://wordpress.com/plans/ page to use
a custom domain name with your
WordPress.com site. Once you upgrade to a
paid plan go
to https://wordpress.com/domains/add/ page to
buy and add the custom domain name to your
site (cost included in the plan cost).

As I understand you want to use


glorodriguez.com as your website address. For
this, you need to upgrade to a paid plan. See
https://wordpress.com/pricing/

Once you have upgraded to a paid plan, you


can buy (cost included in the plan amount)
glorodriguez.com from
https://wordpress.com/domains/ page.
When you upgrade your account and use a
custom domain, all traffic from your old
(wordpress.com) domain name will redirect to
the new domain name.

You can check the availability of the domain


name from https://wordrpess.com/domains
page.

After you upgrade your account to a paid plan,


you need to map the domain name using the
process mentioned at
https://en.support.wordpress.com/map-existing-
domain/

Once you do that, people will not see the


"WordPress" in the domain.

You can upgrade to a paid plan and register a


custom domain name to remove
"wordpress.com" from your domain name.

Do let me know if you have any questions.


OR
Assuming that you are already in possession of
chicagouw.com domain name, first of all, you
need to upgrade your account to a paid plan
(See: https://wordpress.com/plans).

Once you have upgraded your account, you


can use domain mapping process
(https://en.support.wordpress.com/map-existing
-d...) to use your domain name and remove
"wordpress.com" from it.

categories and tags

Here's a good explanation of both:


https://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categor

Here's a good explanation of how to add tags or


categories to posts, then the filter to the menu:
https://en.support.wordpress.com/category-pag

several different sections of the blog/ add


post to a specific page

You need to add the different category to your


posts. See
https://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categor

Once you add categories to your posts, virtual


category pages are created.
Once you are done adding categories to your
pages, you should modify your menu to include
these categories. See

Once you add categories to your posts, virtual

However, it sounds like you've next created


Pages and added these to the menu instead of
adding categories to the menu. Can you return
to Customize > Menus and remove the added
Pages? Then add a new menu item, selecting
the categories from that option in the list.

https://en.support.wordpress.com/category-pag

Go to My site >> Theme >> Customize >>


Menu >> Primary Menu >> Add Items >> Click
on red X next to the page you have added >>
Click on + sign next to the category you want to
add >> Publish

Hello,
The first step is to add categories to what you
post. Edit your posts to add that category to it.
https://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categor

The next step is to create these menu items


with those categories.
Click My Sites, then Customize.
In the Customizer, click the Menus tab.
Choose the primary menu
Click on the + Add Items button.
Choose the Category menu item type from the
list.
Select one of the categories and use the + to
add it.

mapping with $2.99/month Personal plan

You should first upgrade to the personal plan


and then add the domain name. If you want to
add the domain name first then the system will
want you to upgrade to the premium plan which
is the default behavior of the system.

IMPORT FROM XANGA

Make sure you follow the process mentioned at


the
https://en.support.wordpress.com/import/import-

Sometimes importing Xanga export files behave


little weird. Try importing the rest of the files as
WordPress import and not as Xanga import.
This trick works at times.
if you have followed the process and still facing
an issue, do let me know.

renew domain redemption period

Your domain name shunya-yoga.com expired


on 29-05-2017 and is currently under
redemption period.

This means the domain name can still be


renewed, but there is an $80.00 redemption fee
required in addition to the normal renewal cost
and needs intervention from the support staff.

Here's more about how that works:


https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/dom
ain-expiration/#redemption-period

I can route your request to the concerned team.


You'll be contacted by email and assisted
further.

Do let me know if you would like me to route


your request.

You'll usually need WordPress.com staff to


attempt to get that back from the registrar for
you, as well as pay an additional $80 fee.
Would you like me to forward this to them to
work on that for you?

Standalone domain mapping plan has been


discontinued by WordPress.com. You need to
upgrade to a paid plan in order to use your
domain name. See https://wordpress.com/plans

Now you need to upgrade to a paid plan


(https://wordpress.com/plans) so that you can
use your domain name with your
WordPress.com website.
You'll find the guide at
https://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/ and
https://en.support.wordpress.com/category-pag

Space upgrade
WordPress.com no longer offers standalone
space upgrade. I apologize. As of now, the only
way to get more space is to upgrade to a paid
plan.

WordPress.com doesn't accept incoming


domain transfer request. You can either stay

website and blog


You can have your website and blog integrated
into one site only.

change blog to website

The basic difference between a blog and a


website is how the content is presented. On a
blog, all your posts are displayed on the
homepage while the website has a static
homepage and posts are displayed on a
different page.

You can create a static homepage by following


the guide at
https://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-p
age/ page.

If you want a more professional looking theme,


you can choose a new theme from
https://wordpress.com/themes link.

You will also find the guide at


https://en.support.wordpress.com/five-step-web
site-setup/ page useful.

This really depends on the theme that you use


and the settings. Check out this help page
about setting a static front page!
https://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-p
age/

Let me know if I can answer more questions


from there.

In a nutshell, you'll create a Page using the


Pages section in the left menu.

Once you have a page, click Customize next to


Themes, then set the page where all your site
information is as the home page.

A website is a blog which has a static front


page.
Go to My sites>>Themes>>Customize>>Static
front page
And choose front page as static.

There is no way that you can delete your


Premium theme yourself.

You can transfer it to another site that you may


have on WordPress.com or you can make your
site Private so that no one sees it.

If you still want to delete your theme and then


your site:

Suggest you post your request in the forums at


https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/support
and tag it with "modlook" for the attention of the
support staff. Support staff will delete the theme
for you and then you'll be able to delete your
site.
When you post a request in the forums, there is
an option in the sidebar to add tags to your
post. If you add "modlook" tag, the support staff
is made aware of the post.

***********************************
All websites on the internet store information on
your browser in what is called the cache. This
allows websites to load faster on your computer
as your browser can load some information out
of the cache, instead of having to fetch the data
from the web. This also means you use less
data every time you load a page you've loaded
before.

Calypso is the name of the dashboard you see


when you click on My Sites. For some reason,
Safari sometimes decides that Calypso is too
big and that it needs your permission to store
the Calypso files in the cache, but it's safe to
approve that message. The Calypso files are
supposed to be stored in your browser and
won't damage your computer in any way.

As I understand you want to monetize your

Please note that you won't be able to use


advertisement codes from all companies as
WordPress.com doesn't allow several HTML
tags e.g. Script, Object, iframe etc. You can see
a list of allowed HTML tags at

Amazon will give you the product link, you can


paste them in your posts or pages.
If you go for the business plan, they have their
all plugin, that will place products on their behalf
Upload Limit Exceeded

You can certainly delete old media files to make


room for new ones. However, please note, if
you delete an image file from your Media
Library it will be removed from a previous post it
was uploaded to. So, if all of your images are
uploaded to posts, you might not want to
proceed with this route.

Alternatively, you can purchase a Space


Upgrade shown here:

http://en.support.wordpress.com/space-upgrade

That will allow you to upload 10GB or more of


photos (depending on the amount you
purchase).

published a new post and it isn’t showing


up on tag pages

I think I may see the issue:


https://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/#missi
ng-posts

"If you have published a new post and it isn’t


showing up on tag pages for the tags and
categories that you’ve used, there are several
possible explanations:

1. You are using too many categories or tags.


In most cases, there’s no need to assign more
than a handful of tags per post. If you use more
than 15 tags and categories (total), your posts
will not appear on tag pages (because you don’t
want to see irrelevant content showing up there,
and neither do we)."
I'm seeing that your posts are using over 15
tags. Can you try paring these down and then
seeing how the reader finds your new posts in
the next week or so?

how to contact
You can comment on their posts or if they have
contact me page then you can contact from
there.

chat with company's engineer

If you upgrade to any plan, you will be able to


directly chat to the company's engineer.
You will get a dedicated support in setting up a
website if you buy the business plan.
Sorry, you can't contact the company directly as
a free user.

If you are on the business plan, you should


have access to direct chat with the happiness
engineers at https://wordpress.com/help/contact
page
Suggest you go to live chat from
https://wordpress.com/help/contact page which
is available to the paid users.

All domains from wordpress.com support


HTTPS security.
If you want to use SSL, then you have to
choose the business plan in order to install the
necessary plugins for that.

You have to install plugins for SSL.

This will make your post featured on your home

Using Espied theme, trying to get the


portfolio archive to come up as a front page

It would be easier if you were, but I will try to


put it step by step.

First you will need to add a new page, give it


the wanted title and select the page as a
portfolio page. To do this go to Page Settings >
Page Attributes > Page Template and choose
Portfolio Page Template.

This page will hold your Portfolio projects.

Nest step is to select the newly created page as


your front page.
To do so go to My Sites > Themes > Customize
> Static Front Page and select the page you
created in the previous steps.

once deleted no transfer for 60 days


Because the domain was registered, it exists
and is parked.
No transfers of domains can take place for 60
days, and this is a regulation out of WordPress
control.

Sites already deleted by their authors two or


more years ago may become available again, if
they present no username or other technical
conflicts. Do you see a deleted site with an
address you would like to have? You can try
registering a new site with that address here. If
it is available, it will be yours. Since you are not
able, this means the domain hasn't been
deleted for the required time, sorry!

Try using another for now, and try that one


again later if you love it!

how to find which theme is used


The source code of the website can tell you the
name of the theme. If you can let me know the

old posts and links after the blog name is


changed
Changing the site URL changed all the links,
so the old ones no longer work. The only way to
maintain the older links would have been a site
redirect upgrade:
https://en.support.wordpress.com/site-redirect/

Editing links or deleting old links and sharing


new ones would be a way to make the posts
available again at the new address without
adding the redirect. Just share the new links
right from https://boruckajust.wordpress.com/ to
other places like Facebook.

Sorry for the confusion on that!

an image from that by scanning. If you don't
want it too close, use a pretty script font and
make an image with that. Then take that image
and upload it to your site as media, and place it
where you want it to go in your site.

Does that seem like it might work?

copying from email, no spaces between


paragraphs

Its because you are copying text from an email


.It looks like there is some extra HTML code
around that content, and it's possible that's
getting mixed up as you edit the post further.

The best way to avoid that is to paste


everything as plain text in the post editor. You
can do that by clicking the "Paste as text"
button before pasting it in:
https://cloudup.com/cUAWaH0Y_ZW

That will remove the extra code that could be


causing problems for the paragraph breaks.
Then, if you need, you can add back in
paragraph breaks directly in the editor. (You
can do that for the blocks of text where the
paragraph breaks were removed — if that
doesn't work please let me know!)

You're restoring to the one on the right. The left

what the site currently displays.

scheduled post didnt show up

Something interesting is that posts don't


actually publish unless someone clicks into your
site after the scheduled time. That might be
what happened?

You can also check the timezone settings


Settings > General to make sure that's close to
the location that you're in.

private blog/ private site

If your blog is Private, irrespective of the privacy


status of your posts, no one will be able to see
your posts.

delete account but not site

I still see that your domain name is active at


WordPress.com.

If you want to use your domain name, suggest


you don't delete it. Deletion of the domain name
can take from few days to few months to get
released, depending on when it was cancelled.
You can change the name servers of your
domain name if you want to use it somewhere
else or you can transfer it another service
provider after 60 days of registration.

where to enter promo code

If you're at the checkout stage at the part


where you input payment, do you see a left
column recapping the purchase with "Have a
coupon code?" under that?

posts not shared


If you're updating posts by changing the date or
making any other changes, they will not
publicize. Only the very first publish of a post
will do that, sorry! Reposting completely, or
using the share buttons on the published post
will send that to Twitter.

google search private site

If you make your site private, Google will not


further index the site. The existing links will drop
over the time, once Google sees that the link to
your sites is dead.

If you wish to expedite the process, you can


request Google to drop your site from its
database
(https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/rem
ovals).

logo bigger

To make your logo bigger you can specify the


exact size you want, for instance 200px. (You
should need to use a better resolution picture).

.site-logo-link .site-logo {
width:200px;
max-height: 200px;
}

Modifying logo size with just CSS unfortunately


has the side effect of blurring it a little, since it's
essentially just taking the smaller original size
and blowing it up with CSS.

And to center it

.site-branding {float:none;}
.site-logo-link {float:none;}
.site-logo-link .site-logo {margin-left:auto;
margin-right:auto;}

I hope this helps.

locate the draft content

Provided you did not create the post in the new


Beep Beep Boop editor where it's saved only on
your browser, and is not auto-saved to the
servers for your blog unless you click the save
link once, you may be able to recover a lost
post or page.

NOTE: The revision management system from


WP-admin is not built into the new editor, so
saving the draft saves only the most recent
version, but not previous versions.

If the post was created on the dashboard of


your own blog at Dashboard > Posts > All Posts
> Add New then you ought to be able to recover
a lost post or page from revisions if needs be.
http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-revi
sions/

If you cannot locate a revision or restore from


Trash then the content has been lost and
cannot be recovered.

I recommend:

1. Always create your posts on the dashboard


of your own blog at
Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New
If you have cookies enabled on your browser
your preference will be saved unless or until
your clear your cookies, and it will take you to
the classic editor automatically every time you
create a new post via the drop-down menu in
the black admin bar or edit a post via the edit
button on the blog itself.

2. Immediately after creating a post and


entering a title click the save draft link.
Thereafter, "click save draft" frequently.

3. Always allow pages to fully load before


clicking any other links.

4. Never leave a post or page open for content


creation or editing and walk away from it, or
open another tab in the same blog and work on
something else while it is still open. Save it
properly and return to edit it later.

5. Use an offline blog editor so you have


backups on your own computer

recover deleted content / trash


You just "moved to trash" or "deleted

Then you should see a link "Trash" on the top

Select the pages/posts using the checkboxes

Select Restore from Bulk Actions dropdown,

wordpress.com theme for wordpress.org


site
WordPress.com themes are made specifically
for hosting on WordPress.com sites. You can
search WordPress.org themes repository at
https://wordpress.org/themes/ to see if the
same theme has a version for use on
WordPress.org sites or not.

You can learn more about this here:


https://en.support.wordpress.com/premium-theme
s/#note-about-downloading-premium-themes

There's not a way to download the theme from


here. If it's been less than 30 days, we suggest
cancelling. Over 30 days, get in touch with the
theme author and see if they will transfer your
license over to another site to allow you to
continue using the theme.

questions!

It sounds like domain mapping may have

Once you cancel a domain name, it goes back


to the registry and it's completely up to the
registry when they do release the domain
name. WordPress.com has no say in it and
can't expedite the process either.
Gateway theme

Suggest you take a look at the theme


documentation at

1. Create a new Page, and assign it the “Home


Page” template under Page Attributes. The title

beneath the header.

2. Assign the page a Featured Image to appear


as a background to the header. If no Featured
Image is assigned, the Custom Header Image
will be used instead.

3. Publish the page.

4. Set the page as the Static Front Page.


I hope this helps. Do let me know if you have
questions.

In the Gateway theme documentation at

A custom menu allows you to display


Categories in tabs along the horizontal
navigation where normally only Pages tabs are
displayed. If you wish you can also include
Pages and custom links in your custom menu
as well.

How to create a custom menu


http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
1. Don't forget to enable:
Menu Name
__Automatically add new top-level pages

Then click "save menu"


2. You add the Parent pages you want to
display and arrange them in the order you want.

3. Then you add and drop and drag the


subpages below the appropriate Parent pages,
and when you have everything arranged in the
menu that you want you save the menu.

4. Go to the “theme location” module at upper


left on the menu page. Select your custom
menu name from the pulldown labeled “primary
location.” Click the save button in that module.

5. Refresh your browser so that it isn’t possibly


pulling a cached page, and view see your new
menu with Parent pages and dropdowns to
sub-pages.

In general, WordPress is very well indexed by


search engines, so there shouldn't be a
problem. Here are some other tips that may be
helpful!

https://en.support.wordpress.com/seo/

Changing the address again wouldn't be a help


to you.

hyphenation

For free plan:


you can disable auto hyphenation by pasting
some code in the post editor, but you'll have to
do it for each and every post. Are you
interested in this?

Switch the editor to "Text" (=code) and enclose


the content in this code:

<div
style="word-wrap:normal;-webkit-hyphens:none
;-moz-hyphens:none;hyphens:none;">

COMPLETE CONTENT HERE

</div>

But, in my opinion, if you don't like auto


hyphenation better switch to a different theme

CSS
The only way to remove automatic hyphenation
is to edit your theme's CSS. See the staff reply
in this thread for the code needed to do so:
https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/help-me-
remove-hyphenation-from-site-if-possible?replie
s=12#post-1926107

Only certain browsers support CSS


hyphenation - you can see which here:

http://caniuse.com/#feat=css-hyphens

You would be able to modify the hyphenation


rules - in browsers that support hyphenation -
with some custom CSS, which would require
the Custom Design upgrade.

Adding this CSS under Appearance >


Customize > CSS should remove hyphenation
in posts and pages:

article .entry-content {
-moz-hyphens: none;
-ms-hyphens: none;
-webkit-hyphens: none;
hyphens: none;
word-wrap: normal;
}

Just let me know if you need further help.

chat for wordpress.org

When you have a WordPress.org type site,


that's all under your control. No one else can
make edits to your site or manage it for you.
They don't have chat, as it's free software. The
forums will offer guidance to you on how to fix it
yourself. If you don't have the capability to do it
yourself, consider hiring a developer.

I find Google very helpful for problems with my


self hosted sites! Best of luck!

save post
The post will automatically save as you write it
in the most recent version of WordPress.com.
The post auto saves regularly. You'll see
"saved" at the top of the page, next to the site
title. If you arrow back using the <-- next to that,
you'll be asked to save if there are recent
changes.

default theme font

Go to My Sites → Themes → Customize →


Fonts and select "Default Theme Font".

Click on "Save" button at the top.

You'll get the same font as they have used in


the theme template.

With the premium theme, you won't get the


same font during the trial.
Then you will get the same fonts only if you buy
the theme.

The default WordPress.com provided fonts will


be there. The theme specific fonts will add on to
the list.

You can get the nutrition calculator plugin in the


business plan.

Wrong email address

The email address registered with your


WordPress.com account is your unique
identifier. This is how we are able to verify
ownership of blogs and accounts and it is very
important to keep it updated as necessary.

You can update your email address in your


Account Settings

Once you’ve entered a new email address and


clicked “Save Account Settings,” you’ll receive
an email at the new address with a confirmation

confirm the change and update the email on
your account.

Reset views/reset stats pages

I'm afraid there is no way to reset stats pages.


When your site is publicly available, your views

Blog to Printed book

A number of “blog-to-book” services like

you import your WordPress blog and turn it into
a printed book.

Sometimes the connection between one of your


social networking services and WordPress.com
might get disconnected. Not to worry, the
following steps should get you up and running
again quickly:

Disconnecting Facebook
1. Log into your WordPress.com site. Go to My
Site → Sharing in your dashboard and click
Disconnect next to the link to the Facebook
profile or page you wish to disconnect.
2. Reload the page and confirm the link now
says Connect, but don’t click that link yet.
3. Log into your Facebook account. Then go to
your Facebook Account Settings →Apps page
by clicking this App Settings
link. https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ap
plications
4. Remove the WordPress.com app by clicking
the X in its row. (If there is no WordPress.com
row, don’t worry, just skip this step). If you see
a popup asking for confirmation, click the
“Remove” button.
5. Do not check the box to delete content
created by WordPress.com. This will remove all
previously publicized posts and there is no way
to recover them.
6. Log back into your WordPress.com site. Go
to My Site → Sharing in your dashboard and
follow these steps to reconnect.

Reconnecting Facebook
1. On the My Site → Sharing page, click the
Connect button next to Facebook. A message
will ask you to authorize the connection
between your WordPress.com site and your
Facebook account, providing access to your
public profile and friend list.
2. Click the “Okay” button, and Facebook will
then ask you to allow WordPress.com to post
publicly on your behalf. Click the “Okay” button
to allow this, too.
3. Finally, you’ll be prompted to allow
WordPress.com to manage your pages. Click
“Okay” for this as well.
4. You’ll be taken back to your dashboard and
will see a success message. Here, you can
choose if you’d like to publicize to your profile or
one of your pages. Note: You can connect one
personal profile and one of your pages for a
total of two connections if they are on separate
accounts.

When you make new posts, these should


publish as long as the checkbox on the right
sidebar for Facebook is checked. After
connecting/reconnecting the services, you need
to publish a new post to test if Publicize is
reconnected. Try using the share buttons to
post any blogs that failed to
publicize. https://en.support.wordpress.com/sha

Right now there is no way to get an embed

Even if you purchase a plan, it's not possible to

What is domain mapping

For example, you already own


flexymichelle.com domain name and if you want
to use that domain name with a
WordPress.com hosted site, the process is
called domain mapping or map an already
owned domain name.

Renew domain mapping


My apologies, the Experts here don't have
access to your account. Most of the time,
getting this page means that you don't have an
active plan.

It looks like you have the domain through


Network Solutions, but it's mapped to
WordPress.com. The site should still be
available at the free
page, https://bikeforyourbrain.wordpress.com/. I
totally understand wanting to get that back up at
the custom domain name!

When you go
to https://wordpress.com/me/purchases, or the
billing tab there, are you able to complete that
renewal?

I'll reply to all the tickets I see for you to ensure


that you're getting these replies.

I see that your domain is hosted by


WordPress.com. You can map your domain by
going to this menu in your settings
- https://wordpress.com/domains/manage

Select the site you want to manage, and select


your purchased domain. Make this domain your
"Primary Domain"
How can readers leave a comment

To have your readers leave a comment, it's


better to share the complete address of your
blog post.

Prefer hosting

The GoDaddy hosting environment will be a bit


different, but you may feel like that's a better
value for your needs. I can't say. The upside of
WordPress.com is not having to worry about
security, updates, and backups, as that's all
managed for you. GoDaddy will let you use
WordPress software on their servers, and
you're responsible for the upkeep. If that's a
good fit for you, great! WordPress.com and
WordPress.org are a little separate, and that
can be confusing.
https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
With WordPress.COM you receive hosting,
security, and backups are included. You can
even upgrade to a custom domain, like
example.com.

You can choose from hundreds of beautiful


themes.

You have popular features like sharing, stats,


comments, and polls included. There’s no need
to install plugins.

You will receive personal support and the


WordPress.com forums are always available.

Also, you don't have to handle WordPress


installation, because WordPress.COM uses a
built-in version of WordPress.

Unfortunately, there won't be any way to


override the price at this time. I'm so sorry!
WordPress.com did change the cost of the
Personal plan back in August, but others
haven't changed for some time. Generally,
rising costs lead to a change in the fees that
WordPress.com charges. Was there a certain
plan in particular you're asking about?

Trying to Comment, but comments not


visible

Commenting on sites is generally controlled by


the site admin, and not under the powers of
anyone at WordPress.com. Many sites enable
moderation, meaning that your comment has to
be approved by the site owner before it's
visible. That's pretty normal! Often they'll
automatically post after you've had a comment
approved.

Get in touch with the site owner if your


comments aren't going through, maybe?

there's not really a way to expedite the queue

They go through all the requests sent in in order

They work on tickets in an oldest to newest


fashion. Sending in another ticket will bump you

It takes a couple of days until company replies.


We don't get any feedback once ticket is
rerouted to them. Once they get to that ticket,
which depends on their ticket queue, they will
reply through email. I wish there's something
more I could do.

OK, great! Then we don't want to send this one

Since WordPress.com doesn't host your emails

PayPal or your email service provider.

Let me know if you have questions.

Do you see a line "Got it, sounds good!"?


Clicking on the line will take away the pop-up

Wordpress theme

In general, premium themes purchased here


cannot be used on WordPress.org sites. If you
bought that within 30 days, request a refund. If
you bought that longer ago, ask the theme
author if they have a way to transfer your
license to another site.

Let me know if I can answer any other


questions!

Themes bought at WordPress.com are NOT


intended for use on self-hosted sites. Please
request a refund and purchase the theme from
another site. I'm sorry that you make that
purchase from the wrong place!

Premium themes sold here are for use here


only, and usually cannot be downloaded or
transferred to a self-hosted blog.

Sorry, There is no way to undo it.
But if you remember the theme name, then

Your customization will remain there.

Upload zip file

. It's only possible to upload a .zip file if you


have the WordPress.com Personal, Premium or
Business plan. Free users can't add these,
sorry! You'll want to host them on Google Drive
or Dropbox.

Space upgrade
WordPress.com doesn't offer space upgrades
separately from plans any longer, sorry!
Updating to the next plan is the only way to add
more space. https://wordpress.com/pricing/

Deleted file

This file is already deleted, You are seeing it


temporarily.
Try clearing your browser cache or try a
different system and IP.

Retired theme

That theme was available at one time, but it's


since been retired. Themes are retired usually
when they need an update to make them work
better with WordPress.com. It's also possible
the author no longer made that available.

While that's not an option, try searching for


other minimal themes for something similar.
Cancelled the domain, parked with
automatic

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear that you registered


and cancelled without understanding the
domain buying process.

It looks like you registered that today. In most


cases, domains can be released by the
registrar in about a week. At that time, it's
available for anyone to register again. The best
thing to do is never cancel a domain you want
to keep. Would you like to wait and see if that
becomes available, or would you like staff to
see if they are able to restore the domain
purchase to your account here?

Google Analytics

Google Analytics can be added only in the


business plan.
I'm sorry, you're not able to add Google
Analytics to most sites on WordPress.com
without the Business plan. Only those on the
business plan can add this. You can use the
existing stats that are built into your site
instead.

Let me know if I can answer any other


questions.

UPLOAD HTML PAGE/upload html

It's not possible to upload a complete HTML


page to your WordPress.com hosting.
My apologies, I just got your reply!

Since it's not possible to upload HTML to a


WordPress.com site, consider copying the
HTML to a Page on your site. Take anything
that would be within the <body> tags and paste
it to the HTML tab of the editor instead of the
Visual tab. That way, the formatting you created
will be preserved.

This will work if the images are already


uploaded to the web. If you're uploading the
media, you might have to adjust those links.

Does that sound like something that would


work?

Cannot find purchases

Your request has landed on a platform manned

Thank you for your patience while waiting for an
answer to your question.

If you are not seeing any links to cancel


at https://wordpress.com/me/purchases/ page,
usually it means you are logged into a
WordPress.com account which wasn't used to
make the purchase. Can you check the email

the one where you are receiving renewal
notices or payment receipts?
Let me know the website address which you

Com versus org

The .com-vs-.org debate is a big question a lot


of WordPress users have! Here's
WordPress's official post on the subject, and
here's another great article that really breaks
down the pros and cons of each.
The best metaphor I've heard - I don't
remember where I read it, exactly, but I think it
was somewhere in the WordPress blog - is that
choosing between .com and .org is like
choosing whether to rent or to buy a house.
With WordPress.com, you're renting, which
takes a TON of pressure off - your landlord (in
this case, WordPress) handles all the
day-to-day maintenance, deals with the utility
people, handles the paperwork, and all that
other detailed stuff so you don't have to. All
you need to do is sign up, move in, and put in
your furniture the way you like it. BUT, you also
have less freedom when you're renting. In an
apartment, you can choose which paintings to
hang on the wall, but you can't choose to just
tear the wall down and make an open floor
plan instead. With a WordPress.com site, you
can choose which theme you like and make
some minor adjustments to make it your own,
but as you discovered, there are some plugins
that you can't install because they mess with
the overall framework of the site in a way that
WordPress.com isn't equipped to deal with.
With WordPress.org, it's like you own the
house outright. It's YOUR house, and you can
do whatever you want to it - tear all the walls
down, paint every shingle a different color of
the rainbow, keep pigs in your backyard,
whatever makes you happy. But if something
breaks, it's up to you to fix it, or to go out on
your own to find somebody who can - usually
for a fee - and you're responsible for doing all
of the day-to-day upkeep or finding and
dealing directly with the people you've hired
for that purpose.
It's a question of risk-vs-reward and
investment-vs-payoff. WordPress.org is a
bigger risk, more mess, and requires more time
and effort, but is also much more liberating
and customizable to how YOU want it.

Disable Right click

It is not possible to disable right click on a


WordPress.com site. Disabling right clicking is
an outdated practice that doesn't protect your
content. I can still view the source of the page
and download the image. There's some
discussion of that
here: https://www.sitepoint.com/dont-disable-righ

However, if you still prefer to disable this on


your site, you may want to seek another
solution that's a better fit for you. Please let me
know if I can answer any other questions!

Traffics

We have sites that get tens of thousands


pageviews per day, with total pageviews across
the platform numbering at over a hundred
million per day, so I'm confident we can handle
your site's traffic. We don't have any bandwidth
limitations on WordPress.com, so your site has
the exact same traffic capacity whether it's on a
free or a Business plan.

not able to renew

It sounds like someone else made that


upgrade in the past under their account.
Upgrades are owned by accounts, not
companies or entities. The email that receives
the renewals should be the one to make these
changes.

Do you know the email address that gets these


notices to login and manage that?

Can you ensure that you are logging in to


WordPress.com with the exact email address
that received the renewal notification? It sounds
like there may be more than one admin on the
site, possibly both users that you own.

Booking system

You can generate simple PayPal buttons, but


otherwise no. Something like a booking system
would be a plugin, and these are only available
for the Business plan.

Mysql database

WordPress.com doesn't offer users access to


the mysql database that contains site
information.

You may be thinking of managing a site built on


WordPress.org? WordPress.com and
WordPress.org are a little separate, and that
can be confusing.
https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

If this is related to self-hosted WordPress, try


working on getting access to the database via
your host's control panel. The WordPress.org
forums may be able to point you in the correct
direction.

It's not possible to make queries to a database


for a WordPress.com site.

Use deleted domain

A WordPress.com blog owner can choose, at


any time, to permanently deletehis/her blog.
There are any number of reasons someone

Addresses (URLs) for blogs that have been
deleted by the owner will remain deleted. We
cannot, under any circumstances, allow
someone to take over the address of a blog
that was owned and deleted by its
original/previous owner. Please do not submit
support requests asking us to do this.

Sites already deleted by their authors two or


more years ago may become available again, if
they present no username or other technical
conflicts.
See https://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling

deleted less than 2 years before, there is no
way to get it as of now. Apologies.

Well, I suggest that you start visiting websites


that you appreciate and put your attention at
details of designs, fonts, image (if it's serious,
funny, colorful, etc) and see what would work
for you. Then you can have a few references to
start to looking for a theme
here https://wordpress.com/themes

If you need inspiration about what to write on


your website, you can start thinking about your
customers: the basic information (about the
company, services, company differential), the
vocabulary appropriate for them, the
expressions that would connect them to your
service, etc.

Some ideas-
The button on the side of the site is a Follow

the same IP address returns to view your site within

Hello,
I'm Varsha C., a WordPress.com Expertise
Community Member. I'm happy to help you
today.

There isn't a way for you to turn off notifications.


Technically, your site isn't "sending"
notifications. Rather, individual followers tap
into your site's feed and can either choose to
receive notification of new posts via email, or by
following you in their Reader.

If your followers do not want to receive email


notification of new posts, this is a setting they'll
have to change on their own. You cannot turn
off this feature on your site.

Ask them to change the settings at


https://wordpress.com/me/notifications/subscrip
tions
http://ibb.co/h9CEYR

If your readers are unsure how to change their


settings, you can send them the following link,
which contains all the instructions they'll need:

ange-your-email-settings

I hope this helps. Please reply to this if you


have any questions.

Kind Regards,
Varsha C.
Images not showing in rss feed on godaddy
site
This is a common complaint, but not one that
WordPress.com can correct. However, here's a
recent suggestion from staff to someone else:

"How the feed is displayed on your GoDaddy


site is in GoDaddy's control, not ours, so if the
images aren't showing on that side there's
nothing we can do about it. We don't have
access to your site's files over there to check if
something is not working correctly.

The only suggestion I can make is to make sure


all images are added inside your post content,
not just as a featured image. Featured images
are a WordPress.com feature and might not
display on other services."

Every WordPress.com account has a unique


username and email associated with that
account. If you're logged in as a different user
than abbeysands, the account that can access
that site, you just need to sign out and sign in
using that username or the email affiliated with
it. The lost password page will send you a
message to get a new password to log in again.
It's going to be a different email than on this
account, but unfortunately a hint isn't given. Try
to consider the email address you would have
used at the time in 2012.

Once you can log back in, you can transfer the
blog to the new account you have here or add
this account as an admin to manage both.

Ads on free site


WordPress.com display advertisements on

You'll need to be the author of the post oran

domain privacy
I just tried registering a domain name and I see
that privacy protection is included in the plan
price. It's chargeable if you choose to enable
privacy at a later date. Apologies for the
confusion

Only .ca domain names come with free privacy


under any plan. For other domain names,
domain privacy is a paid upgrade.

You can see domain privacy charges in your


currency
on https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/r
egister-domain/#public-versus-private page.
For .fr domains, Private Registration is not
available.

The site deletion process is irreversible and all


content etc is deleted when you delete the site.
You can try to search Google cache or Way
Back Machine (http://web.archive.org/) to see if
your content is available there.

Categories in alphabetical order

Irrespective of the order you create your


categories in when displayed these will default
to alphabetical order. There is no way to
change this behavior. Apologies.

That sounds like some misinformation, and I


apologize that you were told that. In most
cases, you do not want to cancel a domain you
want to keep. It's not the same as making a
return of an item to a store, and there are some
regulations. What was the domain, and how
long after registering it did you cancel?

See:
https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/canc
el-domain/

Owner left the company

I'm sorry that the original person who set up the


site is no longer in the company. A
WordPress.com site is owned by an account,
not a company or entity. Only the single
WordPress.com account that owns the site can
upgrade that site or transfer it to a new person
within the company.

You can get ahold of the person or log in with


their email, should it be one in your company's
network, then transfer the
site. https://en.support.wordpress.com/transferri
ng-a...

If you have previous transaction information for


that site, try recovering the
account. https://en.support.wordpress.com/acco
unt-recove...

WordPress.com will not be able to intervene


and change the registration or site ownership
without the owner's permission. They can
contact WordPress.com if they'd like to transfer
it over and aren't able to do so on their own.

I do know this is frustrating, and I completely


sympathize. Unfortunately, that's something
that WordPress.com is very firm about, and
they offer no other methods of recourse for this.
I believe the domain name is through GoDaddy
and already moved over to your name (Andy),
so luckily that name will be one you could keep
without possibility of losing access.

Please let me know if I can answer more


questions about this.

Move from blogger

https://transferto.wordpress.com/blogger/

Here is a helpful guide on moving your content


from Blogger
- https://transferto.wordpress.com/blogger/
WordPress.com doesn't accept incoming
domain transfer so you need to keep it with Go
Daddy. However, you can map this domain
name to your WordPress.com site by upgrading
to a paid plan.
See https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

webcam
A WordPress.COM hosted site can embed
video from any of the providers listed on this
page. https://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/

If one of these provides a solution for webcams,


then yes.

The site can't stream from a webcam without an


embed from another site first. That might be
something you could do using a plugin on either
WordPress.ORG hosted on another provider or
WordPress.com's business plan that allows
plugins. You might look for plugins
here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/

One thing to note is that WordPress.com and

Yes, when the domain changes from http to

ago, and adding this should help.

-Navigate to Google Search Console and login.


-Click Add a Property.
-Enter your https address.
-Click Add.
-Verify your ownership of the site. The easiest
way is Google Analytics (GA) - if you’re an
admin on GA, you’re already verified. If not,
then copying the verification code to the
<head> portion of your website is a solid bet.
-Submit your sitemap, and wait patiently for

Press This has been depreciated from the
WordPress core, so there are a couple things to
use instead.

-You can use


*yoursite*.wordpress.com/wp-admin/press-this.
php and then enter the URL before clicking
Scan.
-You can also drag the bookmarklet from
Settings > Writing to your favorites bar. This is a
little different, as it doesn't grab the full content
of the page you're using. This would be for a
desktop use.

You can see some discussion of this here, and


weigh in if you'd
like. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/why

ease-delete-it
If you had set up a certain app to do this, can
you remove that now? You might need to set
that up again with a new function.
Unfortunately, this was changed in the software
that powers WordPress.com, and so there's not
a way to get back the former format you used.

Coming soon

I'm sorry, it's not possible to add plugins to a


free site. You can instead:

Make a page "Coming soon" and set it as your


static home
page. https://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/f
ront-page/

Or you can make your site private, and no one


can see it. Change to public when you are
ready to open your
site. https://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/

I hope this is helpful! Let me know if I can


answer any other questions.

Domain mapping, site.wordpress.com does


not exist
This generally means that the domain mapping
for your site has expired and WordPress.com
doesn't know where your custom domain
should go. Is this the correct site?
https://nfccambodia.wordpress.com/

Do you have an active plan under your account,


or can you see when the last plan was in your
account

If so, look at the bottom right of the page.
There's a three dot icon, then a little page for
Following. Blue means you're not following,
green means you are. Click to change that
option.

If you aren't getting emails, try changing that by


managing the blogs you follow at Reader >

The Appearance > Editor option is a theme
code editor that is only available on self-hosted
WordPress.org setups and is not available on
WordPress.com.

Looks like you are using WordPress software


from https://wordpress.org on an external
hosting provider and trying to remove JetPack
ad from your admin panel.

I am sorry that you're still seeing the ad. Please


contact JetPack support team
at https://jetpack.com/contact-support/?rel=sup
port to help you with this.

These were discontinued last year, and staff


has confirmed in the forums that they won't be
back this year just yet. Hopefully something like
that comes back in the future. They were fun, I
agree!

Have a happy new year!

I'm sorry, WordPress.com didn't generate that


last year, and staff confirmed that they're not
doing it this year as well. That was a fun recap,
I agree! They're hoping to create something like
that again, but they don't have immediate plans
for the same year in review as in previous
years.

You can use Stats > Years, and then use the
arrow back to the left of Stats for 2018 to switch
to 2017? The URL is something like
wordpress.com/stats/year/*yoursite*.wordpress.
com?startDate=2017-01-01

Hope that helps!

The current IP address used WordPress.com is


as below:

192.0.78.24
192.0.78.25
Instead, you can use the nameservers:

ns1.wordpress.com
ns2.wordpress.com
ns3.wordpress.com

The Wordpress.com does not have fixed IP


address for the websites. Please note that
these IP addresses can change without any
notification, leaving your site not accessible. If
you are trying to use your domain name with a
WordPress.com hosted site, the best option is
to use domain mapping. You can see the

remove admin bar

Hello,

I'm Varsha C., a WordPress.com Expertise


Community Member. I'm happy to help you
today.
The only people who can see the admin bar
are those who also have WordPress.com
accounts and are logged into WordPress.com
when they visit your blog.

Also, the admin bar that is at the top of


your blog belongs to the person viewing your
blog. If I go to your blog, that admin bar is mine.
That means you are wanting to hide something
of mine. Anyone going to your blog while
logged into WordPress.com is seeing their own
admin bar, not yours.

Sorry, there is no way to remove that.

questions.

Created new account with gmail


There is no single-click option to merge two

Else, in case of Gmail then you can add a dot

it'll be a new email address while for Gmail it

Recover deleted domain


When you delete the site, that warns you
that doing so will delete the upgrades and
domains on the site. You no longer own
sizemic.graphics.

deleted: https://sethbauserman.com/

At the time a site is deleted, the connected

If you want your posts to appear in a grid

'Excerpt' and a box underneath it should read
'this is the excerpt from your very first post.'
Erase every word, leave it blank, and click
'Update.'
I hope this helps!!

Example of website

It would be whatever that plugin supports.


They have a showcase
here: https://woocommerce.com/showcase/

It's the same plugin, so there's no separate


showcase of sites hosted here using the same
plugin. Maybe say that?
That's correct in the English version, so I
believe the one that is incorrect is the language
you have set. The translator may have added
that incorrectly. That might be something to add
at https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/transl
ations

Or let's suggest the correct translation here:

You can make any other translation


suggestions on that page as well. Thanks for

Posting by email allows you to submit a new


blog post by email, but you're not able to send
new information to pages. Pages are static, and
don't update like you're hoping, sorry! You can
see a little bit about posts vs pages
here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-
page/

You can't update those Pages with a change of


information by email, but what about adding the
app to your phone or computer to login easily?
You can use the Upcoming Events
shortcode or widget with that type of
calendar. https://en.support.wordpress.com/wid
gets/upcoming-events/

At the bottom right of the calendar, click on


Subscribe, then you'll see how to get the
iCalendar link. I right clicked to copy that. The
link is:
http://p.fruux.com/c/a3298199118/3474a920-94
ed-4500-8c63-bc10b8152626.ics

Just enter that as the shortcode or into the


widget to see a list of current items you're
scheduled for.

There's not an option to embed a full calendar


with Fruux, but the events I've mentioned are
an option. Let me know if I can answer any
other questions.

Paypal issue

Sorry you're having trouble! I've heard of a


few others having that issue. Can you please
try clearing your browser cache and then try
again? Another user mentioned they use a
different email on WordPress.com and PayPal,
and adding the email they use to PayPal as a
secondary email worked for them.

Once you have purchased the plan, you can


edit the details on your receipt under

There, you can click the "View/Print" link to


view your receipt. Under "Billed to:" on the

Please reply to this if you have any

Domain refund
and the domain cost refunds separately.
When you look on the billing
page https://wordpress.com/me/purchases/billin
g are you seeing the separate line item for the
domain refund?

Note that these are refunded separately and it's


expected to not get a full refund immediately.

If you have nothing sent and the billing is


not reflecting the domain refund, I'll be happy to
send your issue again to Happiness Engineers
to review your account and email you back.
The domain cost simply needs to go
through some additional steps before landing
back at your bank.

WordPress.com doesn't run on cPanel nor


do we have access to the databases.

sela theme grid page

Sela can show static *pages* as a grid, but


it always shows posts as a list like so:
https://selademo.wordpress.com/blog/

You can take a look at other themes like


cubic theme
(https://wordpress.com/theme/cubic) or
Pictorico theme
(https://wordpress.com/theme/pictorico) to
display your posts in a grid format.
First, create one to hold them all. Call it
"Services" or "Designs" or whatever you'd like.
On its settings, give it the Grid Page template.
Then make individual pages for each item in
the grid:
- Give them all featured images
- Give them excerpts (under their settings /
more options)
- Give them a parent page (the one you
created earlier).
- Publish each page
If you want any of those individual pages to
also contain a grid, no big deal, just follow the
same steps.

Hope that helps to give you some options! Let

Projects on specific page


The best way to do this would be to use
Project Types. You can set the projects you
want to show up on one page under one type,
then the ones you want on the other page
under the other type.

You can see more info about it here:


https://en.support.wordpress.com/portfolios/#ad
ding-and-managing%C2%A0portfolio-projects
You can then create a link directly to those
types where they will display all the projects in
that project type.

The next step would be to setup a custom


menu and create links pointing to the Project
Type Archive pages.

Go to My site >> Theme >> Customize >>


Menu >> Select the Menu to edit >> Click on
Add items >> Select Projects from the list >>
click on + sign next to the project you want to
add >> Publish

There really isn't anyway to change what

use what you provide about half the time.

Though since you have made changes, you


can ask Google to (re)index it using the Fetch

Suggest you wait for few hours or at least a

Hello,

I'm Varsha C., a WordPress.com Expertise


Community Member. I'm happy to help you

The «www» will always be stripped from


WordPress.com-hosted sites, in order to insure
that your website is indexed properly by search
engines. But you can certainly have a «www» in
the links to your site or on your business cards,
your visitors will not see an error of any kind.

Your visitor will be forwarded to your site if


they insert the www. The site will appear in the
address bar without the www.

If disabling all plugins fixed the error, then


you know it is one of the plugins that is causing
the error.

Simply go to the WordPress admin area and


click on ‘Plugins’. Now you need to reactivate
one plugin at a time until you find the one that
caused the issue. Get rid of that plugin, and
report the error to the plugin author.

images in comments

Hello,

I'm Varsha C., a WordPress.com Expertise


Community Member.

Images are not allowed in comments


because people could insert absurdly large
images that could, at the very least, severely
slow down the site, and at the very most,
virtually blow up the site (too big and destroys
the layout).

You can submit the URL for an image in a


comment. Then it’s up to the blogger who
receives that comment to choose whether or
not to display it in the post when they moderate
the comment.

See here:

https://en.support.wordpress.com/comment

I hope this helps. Please reply to this if you


have any questions.

Not receive emails while editing the


posts

you need to mark your blog as private,


publish the posts and then mark the blog as
public again.
We can't recommend a plugin as there are
thousands of plugins and not possible for us to

dara theme full width pages

To use the Full Width template, select it under


Page Options while editing a Page.

Go to My site >> Site Pages >> Page settings


>> Page attributes >> Page templates : Select
full width from drop down menu and click on
update.

For post/category pages, a workaround is to


add a widget to your site’s sidebar (this can be
done by navigating to Widgets > Sidebar in the
WordPress.com Customizer. Adding a widget to
the sidebar will increase the width of your site’s
blog page so that it matches the width of the
other pages on your site. If you don’t want
anything to display in the sidebar then you
could add a blank Text Widget to achieve the
same effect.
WordPress.com provides five e-mail forwards under the personal plan. However, you
can use G Suite, Office 365, Zoho mail (provides 25 free mailboxes) with your custom
domain name. See https://en.support.wordpress.com/add-email/ for more details.

Notifications

The emails that are sent depend on your subscriber settings, and not your site. As long
as your blog isn't private, there are no settings for you to change.

For email only followers, make sure they've confirmed the


subscription: https://subscribe.wordpress.com/?option=pending

For WordPress.com users, make sure that they're not blocking emails from
WordPress.com here: https://wordpress.com/me/notifications/subscrip...
Then they'll want to be sure they have emails on for your site in their account by clicking
on the settings for your site here: https://wordpress.com/following/manage

They can also check their spam box as well. This is usually just an issue for the
follower, and not for your blog in general! Let me know if I can offer more guidance on
email notifications!
