having a dilemma. I have been trying for a months to try and get a website/blog up and running but seem to keep going in circles. expensive circles where i seem to keep having to pay for things that dont seem to be what i need
i am confused out of my brain!
I run a wordpress blog which i havnt upgraded to a domain or any of that yet as i cant work out what is needed or how to do it. evrything i try to do (like the domain upgrade and theme upgrade) i seem to need to do something else first, but cant use the support contact unless i have already upgraded.
i was told by a website designer that i can just install a template/theme for wordpress website rather than go to the cost of getting a website expensively designed and setup for me while i am just starting out so i downloaded and paid for a wordpress template only to now read everywhere that i cant use it...even if i do the upgrade (if i understand correctly?) however the website person has said they can try (for hundreds of $) but i am concerned i will be spending more money for it to still not work. i have a domain that is a .com.au one which is self hosted (as i understood that that was what was needed for a template/theme to be installed).
I have tried to do the upgrade that lets me change domain but wordpress seems to tell me i cant have a .com.au one. i mentioned this to the person who is setting it up but she says i can, even though i cant get it to work so i seem to keep going back and forwards.
my wordpress is currently vanessabrownphotographer.wordpress.com
i am getting desperate to get this up and running if you can offer me any advice on how to do it/if possible to do it/ and point me in the right direction.
am i better of cancelling my hosting and domain registration and doing it all through wordpress...although i beleive i read that i cant then do a template if i do it all through you right?
The blog I need help with is vanessabrownphotographer.wordpress.com.
