Exporting my blog and its theme

  1. I'd like to export and download my blog along with its theme to be self-hosted.
    Is this possible or can the theme only be exported if it is one that has been bought?

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

  2. No you cannot export a WordPress.COM theme and use it on a WordPress.ORG install. The two run on different software. This is the same answer whether or not the theme is free or a paid premium theme and whether or not the name of the theme is the same on WordPress.COM as it is on WordPress.org. The two versions are coded differently. Read: WordPress.com vs WordPress.org: The Differences

    Note: Premium Themes are customized for WordPress.com usage only, and cannot be transferred to self-hosted WordPress.org sites. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/premium-themes/

    To export your blog content out and import it into a WordPress.ORG install please see here. Links have to be separately exported and imported. All content in text widgets must be copied and pasted.
