Decided to make the move between WordPress.com and self-hosting through Bluehost. Running into a couple of WordPress specific issues...
I only set up my WordPress.com domain less than two weeks ago, and I understand I can only fully transfer the name after 60 days. This isn't a problem as I believe I have set up nameserver settings correctly, it's just hard to tell exactly if it has worked at all...
One big reason I was moving over was to get a handle on Plugins, and I currently can't see Plugin options when I'm looking at my Dashboard.
My technical knowledge is quite limited, and forcibly growing every day, but I'm struggling with this side of it all. How do I know when it's officially gone all through? I've installed WordPress through their one-click install on Bluehost, but can't see what difference has been made just at the moment.
I was worried about the site going down during this process, and it seems a few people are having issues getting to my site. Some people when accessing it are just getting a blank WordPress template with only the name as an option to view.
For ease of understanding, the site is theperfecttwelve.com.
