Move WordPress blog to private domain

  1. I am trying to move my wordpress hosted on wordpress.com to my own hosted private domain.
    How do I do it?

    I am using theme Elegant Grunge and I can't find any solution to do this.

    Best regards,
    Heidi

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

  2. If you thought that you could export a theme adpated to run on WordPress.com software and use it on w WordPress.org site then you are wrong. None of the themes here can be exported. However, you can locate the theme version for WordPress.org and install it http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/elegant-grunge

    The content in text widgets cannot be exported and that means it's a copy and paste move for text widgets content. The "in-house" widgets only for WordPress.com users will not be found in the widgets in the WordPress.org install. You can export your content by following this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/

  3. Hi!

    Thank you for your reply.

    The theme is not important to move, but everything that I posted, also all pictures.

  4. The export file will contain all of your content.

  5. But the file is very small, and I have about 500 mb with pictures.

  6. When you upload the import file there will be an option to include attachments and the images are attachments.

  7. I am trying to import, but get this error message after I have accepted import of attachments,

    Server error!

    The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there was an error in a CGI script.

    If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
    Error 500

  8. We only provide support on this forum for free hosted WordPress.com blogs and that issue is one that you must post to the WordPress.org support forum. http://wordpress.org/support/ You can create a username account on that same page on the top right hand corner.

  9. ok, thank you.

    By the way, in meanwhile I would like to do some customization on my blog, as fonts and colors, do you know how I can do it, or do I need to purchase this opportunities?

  10. You can hack a WordPress.org theme free of charge.

  11. ok, I understand.
    Thank you for your support!

  12. You're welcome and best wishes. :)
