WordPress support is better than most paid support systems.
Smiley (emoticon) support allows many expressions in posts and comments or the smilies can be disabled via blog control panel.
* Upload problems? Try hitting the browser “Stop loading page” (in Firefox it’s the “X”)
* Set up a domain name rather than using yourname.wordpress.com –
$10 extra to WordPress per year. – Use these DNS settings at your registrar.
Then go buy $10 in credits at WordPress – via “upgrades” tab at dashboard.
Then go to your dashboard / options / domains and add “www.YourDomainName.com”
Your blog will then be the same as you site rather than a separate domain called YourDomainName.wordpress.com
You can also simply “forward” your domains to the blog using “DNS” settings at your registrar. Forward to: http://YourBlogNameHere.wordpress.com
This may NOT work for up to 48 hours.
* Change the file name: Use EDIT PAGE, Page Slug. Changing the page slug gives you a new filename and (brilliantly) even forwards the OLD page name to the new one so you don’t have to mess with old link problems.
* Flickr WordPress photo embeds.
