    I set up my blog though wordpress.com after realizing that I did not like the look of templets I decided I wanted to switch over to wordpress.org. I got hosting at hostgator for my url that I bought on wordpress.com I bought a theme at themetrust.com. I installed wordpress on hostgator and then uploaded the theme into the the theme folder using hostgators file manager.

    Now I can't find the theme. I assumed it is because I have not properly transferred my site to wordpress.org? How do I do this? My current site on wordpress.com dosent have any content so I don't need to transfer any content I just need it to be a wordpress.org site.

    Also, it gave me "http://joeyhead.com/wp-admin" to log in but when I got to that link it just redirects me to "http://joeyhead.wordpress.com/wp-admin/"

    Have you pointed your domain name at you new self-hosted site yet?
