Unlikely - dropbox hosts static content, wordpress needs php and mysql. –  Journeyman Geek Feb 26 '13 at 5:44

Lighten up people. It's not a crime not to know how web sites work. –  Isaac Rabinovitch Feb 26 '13 at 8:28

Short answer: no. Site44 provides no ability to execute server-side scripts. Wordpress needs a server that can run the PHP scripting language.

The crucial concept here is that Site44 only supports static web pages. Wordpress generates its pages dynamically.
