Wp.org vs. wp.com


I installed wp from the one click installs. I have a friend who downloaded wp from the wordpress website. we are finding differences in the screens, functionality, what have you. Why is that? Is the wordpress from dreamhost a commercial vs. free version?


Neither is WordPress.com. The dot com is a hosted service. The dot org is the downloadable software source.

The One-Click and the Downloaded versions should be the same. What do you see that’s different?


I am able to do parent pages and subpages. That’s not working on hers. Also, in the widgets section she has a wide selection whereas I have to go to plugins and have a different selection.

thanks for your quick response.
