    You don't have to embed code to install a plugin.
    The manual on wordpress.org explains it all: http://codex.wordpress.org/Managing_Plugins

    Once installed, each plugin has its own ways of being used. You'll have to read the instructions that come with the plugin.

    Are you speaking about a Wordpress blog set up on your own hosting or a free Wordpress.com blog. It is the free Wordpress blogs on wordpress.com where you aren't able to add in your own plugins, that is where you would want to have your own setup.

    Didn't know this. I guess you're out of luck, David. Or you get your own hosting and set your wordpress blog up there, or you'll have to get a paid wordpress blog hosting account, I guess

    I think you can't use plugin in free wordpress blogs without the default ones. I tried it a lot but I couldn't find PLUGIN option in free wordpress "wp-admin"

    Yes but is that the WordPress from wordpress.org or the one at wordpress.com?
