Carrying over theme options to .org blog from .com (2 posts)

    I’m moving a site from WordPress.com to .org self-hosted. The problem I’m running into is all the little things that an export/XML dump doesn't include.

    One thing is videos (has anyone figured a workaround to that?)

    But the main problem I’m having is theme options and custom CSS things that have been put in place. I was surprised that export didn’t include any details about the theme. So I have fresh installed the same free theme on .org but it isn't exactly the same. And I have to go thru all the theme options and widgets etc to re-create the look I had on .com. Any better ways to go about this?

    I don't think so, if there will be anther way. If you have used the same theme, make sure the version is also same, sometime when we download themes from other sites, these themes are old and not updates, so please download it either from http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/ or from theme provider. Second you have to check any widgets you have applied on wordpress.com blog.
    Happy time
