Wordpress exporting only includes the database entries for your site. Upon importing an xml file to another Wordpress installation an option is given to copy media from within those posts into the new installation.
Permalink settings are not part of hosted blogs on WordPress.com
You can’t modify the PHP code behind your blog
You can see setting custom post link settings as part of the PHP code behind your blog. (Even if it relies on .htaccess of Apache servers).
If you would like to set your own permalink structure you must host a version of WordPress elsewhere.
If you want to be able to modify WordPress to your liking, you need to download it from wordpress.org and self-host it somewhere.
Wordpress.com does not allow you to install plugins.
From their Plugins support page:
Plugins are tools used to extend the functionality of the WordPress
platform. However, they are only applicable to self-hosted blogs and
web sites using the WordPress.org software. Plugins are not permitted
here at WordPress.com for various security reasons.
After further research I found what I was looking for.
There is no "Registration form" option in the free .COM flavor wordpress.
There is on the other hand a contact form. You can find it in the Add page editor in WP-admin as "add contact form".
You can customize this to your liking, add fields including radio and check buttons, simple text and such.
You cannot install any custom plugins on Wordpress.com for related posts. Unfortunately.
The one I've used and abused is called Yet Another Related Posts Plugin. It's highly customizable, free, and has the widget that you want.
As of June 2012, there is no feature built-in to Wordpress.com to display related posts.
There is a rather lengthy explanation on the wordpress.com support page regarding custom menus, so I will just post the link to it: http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
You should find the required info there.
I honestly think this is a legitimate Wordpress.com bug. I have asked for support in the official site, hoping that we either can get a workaround or if it is a real problem as I think, it gets picked up and solved.
In my assumption, these are the security measures of iframes not being allowed overlapping with the source code display feature. Funnily enough,...
Well, before, you would have had to sign up with a Gravatar account. There's really no difference. They've simply unified their user credentials.
So, yes, you need to create a WordPress.com account. Don't worry, that doesn't mean that you'll have a WordPress blog. You can just use it for your Gravatar.
There seem to be two types of post editors inside WordPress.com. I don't know the official names for them, so please excuse my choice of names below.
The "blog-level" editor, which you enter from within the Dashboard for your specific WordPress.com blog, and which is the "main" and full-fledged editor.
The "WordPress.com-level editor", which you can enter ...
Sadly, gone is gone.
Addresses (URLs) for blogs that have been deleted by the owner will remain deleted.
Even if you were the one to delete it and want it back, you can't. There should be a few warning screens about what will happen if you do delete a blog.
Cognito Forms does not currently support embedded on WordPress.com blogs. It looks like WordPress supports a specific embedding protocol that we plan on implementing support for over the next few weeks. I have created a feature card that you can use to follow development and set up a notification when we release this feature.
Disclaimer: I am an engineer ...
You cannot control what features blogs published by other people have. And even if you own the blogs, the options are limited in Wordpress.com.
If what you really need to do is read the posts off-line, then try a tool like HTTRack to store a copy of just the blog post you are interested in on your PC.
Not all themes include styles for print, which would generally suppress comments and other unnecessary content. You might try one of the "read later" services (such as Pocket, which is what I use) which do a very good job of distilling out just the content of a blog post and should print them much "cleaner".
Of course, by this time you already have the ...
There is a inbuilt functionality called featured images in WordPress:
Reference : http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/
I am not sure whether it will be displayed in Facebook Embed Post but it is worth giving a try if you do not already have.
See the below reference:
Two ways of doing it, both limited by the number of articles offered by the feed:
Multiple shortcodes can be combined on one page/post to aggregate multiple feeds.
<!-- etc -->
Maximum of 20 items to display. Add as many widgets as necessary. The ...
The easy solution that I found was to use a Text Widget dropped into any suitable area supported by the Theme.
First, add a text widget to your site by opening the Dashboard then picking Widgets from the Appearance menu.
The Text widget allows a block of titled arbitrary text to be included in every page displayed where the theme includes the area holding ...
As for being a "tag present in regular WordPress" that's not quite how it works. Tags/Elements are HTML and are dependent on the WordPress theme you're using, not WordPress globally.
If your theme doesn't have styling for <aside> (which is a newer HTML5 element) you could create a style for it using the WordPress.com Custom CSS Upgrade
If your theme ...
For a WordPress.com blog:
Under Settings - Reading (http://<blog>.wordpress.com/wp-admin/options-reading.php)
In the "Site Visibility" section
Tick the radio button for "I would like my site to be private, visible only to users I choose"
It's just a matter of pasting the iframe code. The following
