Trouble converting WordPress.com to .org (3 posts)

    I decided to change from .com to .ORG and I am through BlueHost as my domain host. Then I downloaded the wordpress.org file on my computer. As I am through my .com/wp-admin login. I am in my dashbooard area It still has the wordpress.COM basic features. I want to upload a new theme I found. Is there anything I am missing? Where did something go wrong in the process?

    Yes I did go through simplescripts and the wordpress icon in the bluehost tools. How can I play around with the .ORG features with my blog???

    You need a domain name (which you bought from BlueHost) and a hosting service. Have you bought the hosting also from BlueHost? From what you describe, I understand now you are trying to setup the blog at the localhost (in your computer). Is that right?

    Can you post your new site URL (domain name) here?
