WordPress.com to WordPress.org?? Help using installed theme via WP (2 posts)

    I initially started using WordPress.com, and set up my blog there and purchased my domain name through WordPress. I later decided I wanted to use a custom theme, so I purchased a hosting account, installed WordPress via Filezilla, installed a custom theme via Filezilla. When I went to login to WordPress after my installations were complete, I am still in my WordPress.com dashboard (I think?) and cannot see my theme.

    Do I need to do the transfer from .com to .org, and change my domain over to my web host account? I'm really stuck at this point and could some help.

    I am somewhat new to all this, so detailed, simple instructions would help.

    Thank you!

    Yes. Since you purchased your domain name from WordPress.com, ask them for help, or look up their documentation about it.
