  • Hi everyone,

    Can you please help me?
    I am creating a site with a new WordPress theme I bought, but I don’t know where to upload it.
    I didn’t know I had to do it in WordPress.org instead of WordPress.com.. but I already paid for de domain mapping in WordPress.com and installed WordPress 3.5.1.
    The site is running and everything is ok: domain, web hosting, DNS, nameservers..
    The only thing that is missing is my theme.

    Thank you 🙂

    Salomé

    WP.COM is managed hosting, you can’t upload your own theme or plugin.

    Hi paulwpxp,

    Thank you for your help! 🙂
    I know I cannot upload a theme in WP.COM.
    The problem is, I want to upload it on WP.ORG, but I already paid for the domain mapping in WP.COM.
    I don’t know if this is a dumb question but, do I have to create a new blog in WP.ORG? Or can I transfer the domain mapping to WP.ORG?

    Thank you!

    WP.ORG does not register or map any domain names. Who did you register the domain name with?

    Hi esmi!

    Thanks!
    I registered my domain and web host with godaddy.com.
    And then I did domain mapping on WP.COM to turn my WP blog into a site
    Do you know how can I make it possible to upload a WP theme I bought?

    Thank you once again 🙂

    Contact the folks over at wordpress.com and ask if they can remove the domain mapping and allow the domain name to switch back to your GoDaddy site.
