custom design question

  1. I was wanting to get the custom design upgrade, but then I saw this:

    "Please note that custom themes are only for privately-hosted sites using the WordPress.org software. They cannot be uploaded to WordPress.com"

    Does this mean that I can't use wordpress.com after i buy a custom design package and I have to host through godaddy or something like that? Again, thank you!

    The blog I need help with is defyyourlimits.wordpress.com.

  2. No. It means you can't buy a theme from OUTSIDE WordPress.com and apply it to your blog here. Lots of people buy these WordPress themes but don't realize you can only use them on WordPress.ORG blogs, not WordPress.COM.

  3. Just for clarification, when I buy one of the custom themes (or custom design packages) from wordpress.com that means I can use it on wordpress.com, right? I read the article on the differences between wordpress.com and wordpress.org but was still confused.

  4. Please see these entries so you aren't confused.
    Premium themes can be purchased and applied to one blog only and for the lifetime of the blog here at WordPress.com. They cannot be exported later to WordPress.org installs as the two run on different software.

  6. You're welcome.
