  • Do you want to replicate same website on your desktop for development or you want to host it on your server.

    It looks like your site is on WordPress.COM?

    yes it is so there’s no way i can edit it using the wordpress i downloaded?

    If you mean WordPress.COM then not really as it’s a service. We don’t support those blogs here and that’s not something you can download.

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org

    I’m just mentioning that to be complete. 😉

    But if you would like to play with an instance of WordPress.ORG‘s software on your desktop that can only be viewed by yourself on that same PC then consider downloading and installing InstantWP.

    If you are running a PC then it’s easy to work with and once you’ve installed and executed it then point your browser to http://127.0.0.1:4001/ and you can use the software.

    @santosh yes i would like to replicate what i do on my desktop.

    @jan Dembowski I’m not exactly sure what u mean i downloaded the software on wordpress.org’s homepage version 3.5

    also what hosting hosting service will work with wordpress and also allow me to place google adsense on my site?

    you have installed wordpress on your desktop now you need to import posts and pages. you can download xml file from your wordpress.com blog and import it on local machine
    You can export (download) xml file using tool menu on wordpress.com dashboard.

    ok well i downloaded the file but I’m still not entirely sure how toimport it. do i just cope and past the coding from the file into dreamweaver import page?

    there is import option under tools on dashboard menus. use it for importing your posts and pages from your website xml file
