Do I need to move to .org (4 posts)

    Hi All,

    Please help! As a wordpress virgin, I have started to build a site on wordpress.com. I soon realised that I could save some real heartache by purchasing a Theme (the ones available dont seem fit my req)- so I purchased a theme called Kingsize.. However, it seems ($50 later) you cannot upload these soft files into wordpress.com. Is this true, or can it be done?
    If this is true, what are my options? can I move to .org, but keep my .com address?
    How is this done?
    Will I loose the will to live if I try? :)

    Desperate, and confused,

    Neil

  2. You cannot upload themes to wordpress.com.

    Options

    1) Ask for a theme refund.
    2) Switch to self hosting.
    3) Take the $50 as a loss and hang on to the theme for later.

    If you have a domain name with wordpress.com, you can keep it. You cannot keep sitename.wordpress.com though.
