how do i get and install HEADWAY on my site?

  1. how to install headway?

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

  2. What is it?

  3. The blog linked to your username is a free hosted WordPress.com blog. We do not have FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we not able to upload any third party themes.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/

    The only themes you can use on a free hosted WordPress.com blog are those found here > Appearance > Themes and showcased here > http://wordpress.com/themes/

    There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes anything at all stated clearly here > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you want to use any third party theme or build your own theme then don't waste any time here at all. Purchase web hosting http://wordpress.org/hosting/ and set up your own WordPress.org install. http://wordpress.org/ Then move your .wordpress.com blog content into it http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/

    If you are content with remaining at wordpress.com where you can only use these themes and no others http://wordpress.com/themes/ then you can change themes as often as you wish to.

    If you want to change themes on a free hosted WordPress.com blog you must be logged in under the exact same username that registered the blog and who is the Admin of the blog. Note that no content is ever lost when changing themes.

    Go to Dashboard > Appearance > Themes
    browse themes until you find one you like and click "activate"
    or type in the name of the theme you want to use and
    click the "activate" link when it appears

    After you change your theme all you need to do is go here Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets > Inactive Widgets and re-install them where you want them to appear. The widget contents and settings will be the same as they were prior to changing themes.

  4. Headway is Drag and Drop WordPress>ORG Theme Builder and it cannot be used on free hosted WordPress>COM blogs.

  5. Wow. Thank you, TimeThief, for such a quick and thorough response. Do you have an opinion on Headway and .com vs. .org?

  6. Nobody can say whether it's right for you unless we know your goals.

  7. Headway cannot be used on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. That's fact and not a matter of opinion.

    [opinion] IMNHO that writers write and the theme is not their primary focus. The quality of their writing, their ability to engage retain and grow a readership based on the original and unique content they publish is where they are at.

    Those who have yet to publish but arrive here seeking to fiddle, fart, tweak and/or build or customize themes are best served by hiring a web host and setting up their own WordPress.org installs. [/opinion]

  8. hmm. ok. but real quick…what is the difference between wordpress.com vs. org? i suppose i could just google it.

    can i change my current blog over to .org so i can use headway?

    thanks!
