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="" src="http://wewanttolearn.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/snowflake-...

Go to your site's dashboard. Then navigate to Settings » Discussion and disable the "Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks)" option:

It may not have been possible in Oct 2011, but it is now. hosted wordpress.com automatically recognizes gist URLs and will embed them. http://en.support.wordpress.com/gist/

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 instructions....

Try something like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/feedwordpress/ or another RSS aggregator.

You can from now on download all free themes on wordpress.com. On theme's page look for "Download [name] for your self-hosted WordPress site" link in sidebar, under "Stats & Info". Konstantin Obenland announced that in a tweet today.

You only need one account, however I often create a new account for client work. WordPress.com allow accounts without blogs on WP.com which is normally what I do if someone else may possibly need access to the account.

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.

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 ...

There is indeed a Stats API that will allow you to access stats from a WordPress.com or a Jetpack site. You can read more about it here: http://stats.wordpress.com/csv.php http://phoxis.org/2011/04/24/wordpress-com-stats-api/ http://wpgr.org/2013/03/02/rendering-jetpack-stats/ Jetpack uses this API to populate the Top Posts widget: http://plugins.trac....

It's not hard just copy your theme and plugins to the new site and use export from tools in the dashboard and you should be fine.

In your dashboard, go to Settings > Sharing, and drag the available social networks into the "Enabled Services" area to accomplish this. See http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2010/08/24/more-ways-to-share/.

No, you cannot, unless you have 25,000 pageviews/month, as stated here! http://en.support.wordpress.com/advertising/ Go with hosted or self-hosted solution of Wordpress instead.

I thought I would provide a work-around that I have used. Using any editor that allows find-and-replace you can just do the following (assuming $ appears only as latex start/end parameter and not as a symbol by itself): find-and-replace $ by &bg=ffffff$ (replace ffffff by your favourite colour) then find-and-replace &bg=ffffff$latex by $latex It is ...

Nope, you only need it to activate. I use it on 4 sites with same account.

You cam use http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jetpack/ which is by Automattic and has the desired Subscribe/follow functionallty.


2

Self-hosted blogs use RSS for subscriptions. As far as "liking" goes, that only makes sense within the quasi-social-network environment of WordPress.com.


2

As far as I know, Jetpack's Enhanced Distribution is the closest you can get. Jetpack will automatically take the great published content from your blog or website and share it instantly with third party services like search engines, increasing your reach and traffic. Just in case you don't know about Jetpack, it's a plugin by Automattic (the people ...

This is sort of two questions in one, but to solve your first problem and get your blog working again you need to edit your MySQL database. If you have access to PhpMyAdmin open that up and find the wp_options table. Inside the table there are two values to change siteurl and home are the names I believe. Change these both to http://example.com/blog or ...

Its simple.. Export Just check this page to export your blog data.. http://en.support.wordpress.com/export/ Import Install a fresh wordpress.. Then import it.. http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/ Please note: wordpress.com uses the same software downloaded from wordpress.org.. They just using it as multisite.. http://codex.wordpress.org/...

If she has Post by email enabled, she can submit her post using the email addresses for each of the blogs at the same time.

You won't lose them, but they won't exist in one place. Old stats will be in your account, and new stats will be in the corporate one. The Jetpack team is quite responsive, if you ask them to change the account owner of the blog_id, there's a chance they'd be able to do that for you.


2

Your stats and subscribers are stored on WordPress.com, and associated to your site URL. The WordPress.com account used to connect Jetpack to WordPress.com doesn't matter. If you disconnect Jetpack from WordPress.com and then reconnect with another WordPress.com account, all the data associated to that site URL will be back in your dashboard. You won't lose ...

Wordpress certainly can scale. Wordpress.com alone served 14.6 billion pages last month. The key is that they had hundreds of servers so that they can widely distribute the load. Since they have a more tightly controlled platform, which helps them ensure that they don't have badly written code slowing things down. But in the end, a lot of things don't have a ...

It shows on your new site that it reflects the old domain http://deephollowfarmct.com/, if you are not planning to use your domain http://deephollowfarmct.com/, you need to re import your xml file to and do a find and replace of the string from http://deephollowfarmct.com/ to https://deephollowfarmct.wordpress.com before importing them. If you will be ...

If you use wordpress.com, you can't change the permalinks. You have to use the original wordpress.org version and host it on your favourite webhoster.

First it is important to note the difference between Business Plan and regular WordPress com. To my knowledge Business Plan accounts are not hosted on regular dot com grid, but are based on infrastructure of more conventional managed hosting company they've acquired (not sure if completely) while back. So the closest analogue for it would be a managed hosts ...

WordpPress "out of the box" is not GDPR complaint. Even putting aside the integration with non complaint services like akismet and gravatar, just storing comments will probably require to give users the ability to delete them, but there is no real way to identify which users created which comment as comment authors are never verified. For 99% of wordpress ...

I am advised by WordPress.com support that this is a known bug and they are still working on fixing it as an issue. Currently they suggest a manual workaround to overwrite the unwanted parent theme styles.

Welcome ... this forum is more suited for WordPress selfhosted not WordPress.com sites. However ... reading the WordPress.com theme documents it says The Showcase page template offers a featured slider for sticky posts. If you’d like a post to appear in the slider, mark it as sticky and assign it a featured image that’s at least 500 pixels wide. So ...
