    Hello,
    I need help.
    I had a free blog at wordpress.com. Than I got a .com domain with bluehost and they said it would be realy easy to transfer my blog completly over to this bluehost account.

    I set up the wordpress and did the thing with export from old one. log in to new account and import .. but than it keeps saying:
    Invalid file
    Please upload a valid WXR (WordPress eXtended RSS) export file.

    put that is the one that i just had exported from the old account.

    so i started over using the same theme "andrea" and started to set everthing up ... but now. after a verry long night. I can´t change the bannerpicture, instead I have a little symbol up there which I don´t want to have. Also can´t I add any slideshows as I was used to do it on my wordpress.com blog

    PLEASE can someone help me sort this out ???

    Try exporting from wordpress.com again. If you continue to have trouble with that error, contact wordpress.com's support department:
