WordPress is a singular without plural. A second instance would be a fork that could not use the same name, because the name WordPress is a trademark of the WordPress Foundation. Like Jesus, just more rules. If WordPress had a plural it would be WordPresses, like in mess or mistress. But the prerequisite for that would be that WordPress becomes either a ...

Hate to play grammar police here; but using the plural form of WordPress in the example you've given is incorrect. The correct form would be `...WordPress projects...' not '...WordPresses projects...' After all you deal with a couple of WordPress projects, not WordPresses projects.

This method isn't always fireproof, but you can often look at the source code (right click on white space in the blog), and look for the word "themes." For instance, in the case of ltty.wordpress.com, this line appears: <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://s2.wp.com/wp-content/themes/pub/inove/style.css?m=1285721595g" type="text/css" media="screen" /> ...

wordpress.com supports code syntax-highliting. You can read all about it here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/posting-source-code/ for your specific example use: [sourcecode language="java"] package com.jameselsey.domain; import java.util.ArrayList; import java.util.List; import com.google.android.maps.GeoPoint; import android.app.Application; /** ...

You can't upload plugins on WordPress.com. For security and performance reasons, you can only run what wordpress.com staff has approved.

Try Postie. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/postie/ It has lots of features (including handling attachments and inline images)

Yes you can. It's [code] *your code here* [/code] and you can even hint the language: [code lang="php"]<?php echo 'test'; ?>[/code]. This is the method I prefer (quick to write). There seem to be other ways as the following resource explains: Support: Code ยป Posting Source Code (wordpress.com)

You can't disable categories altogether, but you can prevent WP from displaying them: in the post editor screen within the admin interface, use screen options to hide the category picker. in your theme, remove category-related lines. This won't, technically, disable everything category-related from showing (WP may still output, say, category RSS feeds ...

WordPress features a very rich XML-RPC interface that you can work with from external applications. It provides you access to most of the functionality you'd have directly in the admin - write posts, edit posts, edit comments, create/edit categories, manage site options, upload files, etc. As a matter of fact, certain third-party applications are already ...

This is irrelevant if you're self-hosting your site. WordPress.com is a free hosting site run by the company Automattic. Since it's run by a private company, they set the rules and restrict advertising. WordPress.org is the homepage of the open source project called WordPress. You can download WordPress from this site and install it on your own server. ...

First off, check if the theme is available in wordpress.org themes: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/ If it's not, find the name of the theme developer and contact them. Many developers of wordpress.com themes are happy for people to use their themes on self-hosted WordPress blogs. The developer's name and contact details can be found by looking at ...

In English, it's an uncountable noun. Like information or advice. Generally the plural nature is made explicit by the context. E.g. "different versions of WordPress"

Animated gifs will not be animated when resized. I see that you're using the full sized image, but there are parameters added to the src attribute (probably due to some plugin or your theme): From the source: <img class="size-full wp-image-4604" title="Koch snoflake progression" alt="" ...

You are probably looking for Jetpack comments system. If so, you can install Jetpack plugin and then activate the Comments module, if it is not activated by default upon plugin activation. After plugin installation, you may also need to connect to your WordPress.com account to enable any (or all) Jetpack features as indicated in the installation ...

If you have a blog that is hosted on WordPress.com, you can't install extra plugins or modify the theme files yourself - this is only possible with a self-hosted version. However, WordPress.com has enabled LaTeX support for everyone. Just write $latex your-latex-code$ and it will be rendered as images.

It looks like this is now a standard feature on Wordpress.com. http://en.support.wordpress.com/offsite-redirect/

Not an easy question to answer. That stuff is mostly private and they seem to use greatly modified versions of some public plugins. wordpresscom tag in repository has several. Also see this topic for more ideas and places to check List of plugins used on WordPress.com

Hi @Nam Gi VU: I'm pretty sure that's not possible directly. What you could do would be to export all posts to a text file, use a search and replace in a text editor and then import them back in deleting all the posts before you reimport them. Be careful to change a copy of the export in case your search and replace corrupts the file and makes it fail to ...

If you don't want to redirect your users from example.com to example.wordpress.com, but really want example.com to be new domain name for your WordPress.com blog, you can buy Domain Mapping for $12 per year if you already have your own domain.

Hi @Nam Gi VU: In general, this is not really a WordPress question. I'll answer it because I tend to be lenient about how related questions need to be but there's a good change another moderator will close the question and if they do I'll agree. Basically since WordPress.com does not provide this feature you need to use a 3rd party service that will read ...

Here is what WordPress.com have to say on using your domain with them: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/ From there they are clearly saying to use their nameservers. This will because they have a number of IP address and any one of them could be the one hosting your website. Therefore they cannot reliably give you the IP ...

Bottom line: No. Reason: WordPress.com doesn't live on one IP address. It's a big hosting system, with many servers, fault tolerance, multiple datacenters, etc. What IP they give back for DNS requests is going to vary depending on a variety of factors.
