[resolved] How do I export my entire WordPress site? (2 posts)

    I had originally started designing a WordPress hosted site at WordPress.com, but I eventually decided I would need the freedom of a self-hosted site.
    I'd like it if I didn't lose the design work I have finished so far. I saw on some videos on Lynda.com that you can export your WordPress.com site if you later decide to self-host. But when I tried that, it created an XML file and when I opened it, it was only text (it didn't even look like HTML or CSS; it looked more like a really long URL). It didn't have any of my design work like images, colors, and layout.
    Am I missing something?

    No. You can only export the content from your wordpress.com site - not the theme.
