We have several resources available to help users with the questions and problems they encounter while using WordPress.com. If you are running a self-hosted WordPress blog, please visit WordPress.org Support.
Help in the Administration Screens
Whenever you are in your blog’s administration screens and have a question, look for the Help option in the upper right corner of the page.
Click on Help and you’ll be able to get instant access to documentation.
Our Support site has a lot of great documentation to answer your questions. We have videos, screenshots, and walkthroughs detailing many of the problems users encounter while using WordPress.com. Search through the documentation and you’ll likely learn some extra tips as you go.
The WordPress.com Forums are a great place to get support as well. Staff are active members in the forums, but there are a lot of volunteers ready an willing to help as well. Most of the forum volunteers are veteran WordPress.com users who started out just like you. They’ll surely have some tips and tricks to help with most questions.
Premium Theme owners, be sure to visit the dedicated Premium Themes forums where theme authors provide customization tips and exclusive support.
Be sure to make use of the forum’s search feature to locate previous discussions that could provide the solution to your problem.

You can use the contact form to send a message to staff 24 hours a day, unless otherwise noted on the page.
