How to migrate theme settings when migrating to self-hosted

  1. Hello,

    how can I export my theme's settings (for Imbalance2 from WP Shower) when migrating from a wordpress.com to a self-hosted blog?

    I exported all I could – I had the theme uploaded and activated on the new server beforehand – but my settings for the theme would not be included.

    How can I do that or in what file could I find the settings?

    Thanks for any hint!

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

  2. You can't. The themes and their settings here don't export to a self-hosted site.

    Also, now that you're self-hosted, you're posting to the wrong forum. While we can help you with stuff to do just with WordPress.com we can't help you with WordPress.org stuff:

    These are the forums to use for a self-hosted WordPress blog:

    http://wordpress.org/support/

    and you should read this:

    Also, the theme settings that are on the version on imbalance here very well could be different from the self-hosted version of the theme. There could also be some stuff in the wordpress.com version of the theme that is NOT in the self-hosted version.
