[Resolved] Can I install a wordpress.com free theme on a privately hosted blog?
Hi! I’m new to WP from Blogger. I have a privately hosted account and am working on transferring and converting my blog over the WordPress software from Blogger. Please forgive any misunderstanding I have, I was already over at wordpress.com forums and told to go here instead and already getting confused. I did read the welcome message here and did try to search for my question. I’m sure it’s been answered but I must not be using the right tag words.
I’m looking at themes at wordpress.com/themes and found a few free ones I want to try. I found this free one: http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/fresh-and-clean/
But there is no option to download that theme, or any of them, that I can see. The only option I see is to “Activate”. When I click that, it doesn’t activate on my privately hosted blog, I believe because I need the option to download the theme and then upload it to my hosted blog themes in my dashboard. I did look through the pre-installed theme options there, but don’t see any of the ones I am interested in from the wordpress.com gallery.
I’d be grateful for any help or pointing out something obvious I may be missing!
Thank you so much for your patience with me being so green yet here.
Also, if anyone knows how: When I log into my WordPress.com account, my privately hosted blog does not show up in “My Blogs”. It only shows as a “Linked Blog”. Is there a way to place under “My Blogs”? And to have the same username and log-in for my hosted wordpress blog account and my free wordpress account? I’m wondering because when I comment on other WordPress blogs (free or privately hosted) I’d like my name/profile to link to my privately hosted blog.
