    Hi. I recently built a site on WordPress.com and now I am trying to switch it over to WordPress.org. I have installed WordPress and I exported the .xml file from WordPress.com. When I imported into the new site per the instructions the first time only one page came in. The second time I got all of the pages but it created duplicates. However, my theme and all of the customizations I made are not working.

    Here is the hosted site as it is now: http://womenschallenge.net/

    This is what it is supposed to look like: http://thewomenschallenge.wordpress.com/

    Import files only contain your site's text content and links to media files for importing - not any theme, theme settings, menus or plugins. You have to install & set these up by hand.

    You could also the folks over at wordpress.com about a guided transfer.
