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.

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. Then ...

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 ...

Tor Browser has some JavaScript disabled by default. Go into options for the NoScript plugin and add WordPress.com to your Whitelist and that should do the trick.

In "Customize" under "Widgets" there's a thing called "Recent Posts". Add that, and bingo.

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 ...

The "Visual" tab doesn't expand Markdown to HTML. Use the Preview button instead.

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.

You mention: ...I want to create a new, separate blog, called foo-health.wordpress.com ...I was redirected to a "Let's get your site a domain!" page. I want to skip this step, but it doesn't seem to be possible. Is it? No it is not. First of all you should be aware that your site/domain foo-health.wordpress.com is a subdomain. The same is true ...

Well my private blog only shows 1-2 hits per day so for me it's not counting something that isn't there. Botnets can be used to flood websites and they might be spread over different countries.

WordPress's default HTML-like input format is made more convenient by the wpautop filter, so as not to require explicit <p> or <br> elements in most cases. Unfortunately this means the Markdown option is also affected. This was how it worked from the start. The options to disable this are not available on WordPress.com. The convenient input ...

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 ...

No, not really. That's not to say that there isn't a plugin which might do what you want. (Only applies to self-hosted WordPress sites, though.)

No, the list of followers of a WordPress.com blog is not made public. It is visible only to the blog admin(s) under the "Site Stats" => "My Followers" section of the Dashboard.

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. EDIT: See the below reference: http://en.support.wordpress.com/facebook-image-thumbnail/ Featured image:...

Two ways of doing it, both limited by the number of articles offered by the feed: Shortcode Multiple shortcodes can be combined on one page/post to aggregate multiple feeds. [rss url=http://blog1.example.com/feed] [rss url=http://blog2.example.com/feed] <!-- etc --> Widget 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 ...

You can't install plugins on a hosted WordPress site, neither can you run arbitrary JavaScript code. With these restrictions, there's no way that you can live blog on your hosted WordPress.com blog

Automatically? Apparently not any more. However, you can achieve what you want on a per-post basis by using the magic of shortcodes. Specifically, the display posts shortcode. Add the shortcode [display-posts] in a post or page, and use the arguments to query based on tag, category, post type, and many other possibilities. Depending on what you want to ...
