    Hi, hope I can get help soon.

    I have started a urbantribers.wordpress.com acc few weeks ago and I found out I can install theme that I bough some where else. then I did install the wordpress 3.31 using MAMP and now I could use my theme, but I don't know how to publish my page.

    can I merge/transfer my current urbantribers.wordpress.com together? so that I can use this same domain and also the theme I wanna use.

    You can't publish your site from localhost you need to buy a domain and hosting to publish your site.

    ok. so I can now delete my previous wordpress right? since I can merge it. correct?
    and once I get domain and hosting, I need to have a host with wordpress support also right?
    thanks by the way!

    You can't use urbantribers.wordpress.com as that's actually a wordpress.com domain, but you can buy another name.

    You can delete it after you've successfully transferred that data over, or you will lose all your existing posts.

    The host you choose needs to have PHP and MySQL support. Here's the page which tells you the requirements.
