fresh & clean theme not updating outside of wordpress.com

  1. Hi - I am a wordpress newbie but so far, so good. I installed the fresh & clean theme and was able to update the features of the theme via wordpress.com. However, because I wanted access to the files behind the scenes, I decided to set up hosting with another provider since wordpress.com doesn't allow back-end file access. I was able to install the theme without any issue but as soon as I try to customize its features, nothing updates on my site. I tried simply updating the background color or menu items and it will not reflect on my site. If I switch themes, the menu items I created are indeed there. When I switch back to fresh & clean, it is the default page. I have also tried this with a second hosting provider and I get the exact same problem. Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance for any info!

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

    If you are having issues with a self-hosted WordPress blog, please seek help at WordPress.org Forums. Unfortunately we only can provide help with blogs hosted here WordPress.com.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    I wish you best of luck with your blog!

  3. thanks for the response. one quick question - are some themes like this one only made to run within your hosting environment? Thx!

    In most case, WordPress.com version of themes differs from the WordPress.org version, because we have adapted the theme for use in the WordPress.com environment.
