How Can I apply a purchased word press theme to my URL?

  1. Hi, I am running sincerelycinema.wordpress.com blog and I also have sincerelycinema.com URL which I have got registered with another site. I also have web hosting space with me. Yesterday I purchased a theme RUSH from word press itself. I have uploaded all the files of RUSH theme to my hosting space, and connected my URL to my hosting space as well, but when I open my sincerelycinema.com, it is directed to my blog. Can you please help me out in this. Please tell me how can I apply my new purchased theme RUSH to my site, and I also do not want to redirect site URL to my blog. Many Thanks. Please respond.

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

  2. Sincerelycinema.wordpress.com is a WordPress.com site. Themes can't be uploaded to blogs hosted on WordPress.com. They can only be uploaded to self-hosted blogs running on WordPress.org software. You can read more about the differences between WordPress.com and WordPress.org here:

    I am seeing sincerelycinema.com point to your self-hosted .org site. If you are trying to get it to point to your WordPress.com site, log into your WordPress.com site's dashboard, click on Store-->Domains, enter sincerelycinema.com in the "add a domain" box and click the "add domain" button. Then simply follow the instructions that appear to map your domain.

    Please let me know if you have further questions or if anything is unclear.

  3. Thanks for the reply. But my concern is still there. My problem is that my URL sincerelycinema.com has been redirected to my blog URL sincerelycinema.wordpress.com automatically even when I did not try for mapping. As I wrote earlier, I had purchased web hosting space and a wordpress theme named RUSH. I connected my URL sincereclycinema.com and the purchased theme to my hosting space. But what I found my URL was redirected to my blog i.e. sincerelycinema.wordpress.com. Please, suggest, how can I undo this unwanted mapping? I want to apply RUSH theme to my site sincerelycinema.com and not to my blog. Thanks a lot. your suggestions would be a great help really.

    There is no Domain mapping upgrade on the WordPress.com account you are posting from and and sincerelycinema.com is not showing WordPress.com namservers. Both of which would be required to map it to a WordPress.com site:

    http://who.is/whois/sincerelycinema.com

    It could be that your browser is displaying at a cached version of the page. You can try either clearing your cache, using a different browser, or loading the page and then holding the shift key while you click reload/refresh.

  5. Thanks for the response. It is solved now. I got the new theme with my URL. Thanks again for your quick responses.

  6. Great to hear!

    Glad that you got it sorted out.
