    Hi there,

    Can I use the Premium Themes that are featured on WordPress.Com on my self hosted blog? Right now I'm using 2011.

    It looks like that might not be possible.

    Note: Premium Themes are customized for WordPress.com usage only, and cannot be transferred to self-hosted WordPress.org sites.

    Rats, thank you and why?

    I am assuming that it might be a part of the agreement wordpress.com has with their premium theme partners who customize their themes especially for use on the wordpress.com site.

    You may still be able to purchase the premium theme directly from the theme developer though.

    The explanation in this conversation over at wordpress.com sums it up better than I did: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/buy-a-premium-theme-for-use-with-a-wordpressorg-site

    Can you give more information regarding which premium theme you would like to install?

    You can install premium themes onto a WordPress.org site. In fact there are several options listed here: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/commercial/

    Is there a way to transfer premium themes purchased at wordpress.com to a wordpress.org site? I'd hate to think I unwittingly steered someone in the wrong direction if it can actually be done. @sandrasallin's question was; "Can I use the Premium Themes that are featured on WordPress.Com on my self hosted blog?"

    @ClaytonJames,

    Apologies. I read and re-read the OP to try to figure out what I was missing....and I still missed the .COM in the question.

    Thank you for setting me straight.

    I wanted to install Elemin on my self hosted blog http://www.apartfrommyart.com

    Don''t think I can do it.

    I did what someone suggested. Searched for the author and found the web site. Themify.me

    They not only have Elemin but others that look very cool.

    Thanks for all of the help.

    You're right, I thought I'd answered the post and then thought I didn't. Now you can see why the idea of Child themes is so overwhelming to me. (G)
