    Hi I'm pretty new to web design (but a very experienced programmer) and I'm creating a pretty simple wordpress blog for a friend. Take a look if you want: http://beachief.com/. Right now he has a domain mapped to a wordpress.com account, so I have no access to plugins or custom themes. This is what he wants me to add:

    A like/dislike function for all posts
    One section with 2 blog columns side by side (not supported by the theme)
    The ability to have users log in and post their own content

    My question is: is this stuff possible to do with a wordpress.com account? Or will he need to switch to an independently hosted wordpress.org site? Let me know what you think, thanks

    I would say you can't do anything if you don't have access.

    Let him know that he can subscribe to a webhost for as little as $40 a year.
    That's pretty cheap .. 10 gallons of gas?

    If he picks a webhost such as cleverdot.com, they have an automatic script
    installer ... installs WP automatically. You just take care of the theme, and
    of course, you have full access to all files, plugins, whatever you want to do.
