Digital Strategy Works blog post on the mystery of WordPress plugins and why we can't install plugins at WordPress.com, but can on a self-hosted version of Wordpress. What does self-hosted mean anyway? And, what's with this new term: "managed hosting." What does it mean? Let us explain!
On Thursday, January 28, 2010, Digital Strategy Works founder, Tony Zeoli, hosted the first Wordpress Westchester Meetup group at the offices of the Journal News (1 Gannet Drive, White Plains, NY).
Tony's presentation, Getting Started with Wordpress, guided participants in the the difference between setting up a blog or web site on Wordpress.com versus hosting by installing the Wordpress software with a web host provider.
Tony covered the basics of install and how to set Wordpress so that the home page resolves at "yourdomain.com, instead of "yourdomain.com/wordpress." Just three simple steps and you're done.
