  1. Hiya, i'm hoping someone here can help.

    I'm setting up a new blog, and I hoped that users would be able to filter posts on more than one category e.g. price range AND theme AND age. Ideally I'd also like to be able to filter on user review (no of stars).

    I've tried the standard category widget and that doesn't meet my needs - does anyone know of any other ways of achieving this result?

    Thanks so much

    Amy

    The blog I need help with is helpineedagift.com.

  2. Note that on a free hosted WordPress.com blog you can sell only products that your yourself personally create or services that your yourself personally provide. You cannot set up an online store and market commercially made products.

    No free hosted WordPress.COM blogs can be equipped for eCommerce transactions. See here for details of all 3 plans http://store.wordpress.com/bundles/

    Note that none of the plans allow you to run advertising or to upload your own themes or plugins. If you need a site that requires a custom theme or plugins for eCommerce — e.g., if you want to be able to sell things directly from your site, or if you want to install discussion forums — a self-hosted WordPress site might be right for you.

    WordPress.org offers free software that you can install on a web server. You can upload and install themes and plugins, run ads, and edit the database and equip the blog for ecommerce.

  3. your = you :(

  4. Thank you so much for your reply, looks like I need to move to .org then, is there a simple way to move my domain name that i bought through .com?

    Thanks again for the advice

    Amy

  5. Yes, you can keep the domain and redirect the name servers (see 4. below).

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate.
    http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Here's a summary of the process involved.

    1. Hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/

    2. Set up a WordPress.org install and equip it with a theme and plugins.
    http://wordpress.org/themes/
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/

    3. Export your content out of your WordPress.com blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/export/ and import it into the install.

    4. Purchase a site redirect upgrade from wordpress.com
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/site-redirect/ or if you have domain mapping then update the nameservers http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/domain-management/

    5. Transfer subscribers and stats. See http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/moving-your-subscribers/

    6. Set your wordpress.com blog visibility to private. To change blog visibility to private go to > Settings > Reading scroll to Blog Visibility and choose option 3 . See the guide here http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/

    Alternatively you can purchase a Guided Transfer and Staff will do the move and set up for you http://en.support.wordpress.com/guided-transfer/

    NOTE: WordPress.com and WordPress.org have different log-ins and run different versions of themes with same names. If you don't have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.
