switching to wordpress.org

  1. Hello,

    I'm thinking of purchasing a theme i liked on themetrade.com but i'm guessing that i cannot use any theme i purchase on that site unless i switch to wordpress.org right?

    So, my second question would be: how hard is it to switch to wordpress.org?
    I know i have to pay for a host, like godaddy or bluehost...but how difficult is it to instal/switch from .com to .org?

    Thank you very much

  2. Hi there, on WordPress.com you can choose from 200 gorgeous themes, which you can review here: http://theme.wordpress.com or try out under Appearance > Themes in your Dashboard.

    Third-party themes (from the likes of themetrade.com) can't be uploaded to WordPress.com. That's a feature of self-hosted blogs through WordPress.org. See here for more information: http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/

    Perhaps you'll be able to find the a theme that meets your needs in our Theme Showcase?

    You may also want to look into purchasing the Custom Design Upgrade to customize one of the themes we offer: http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/

    If you are considering moving to WordPress.org, I recommend reading about the differences to decide which one is right for you: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you decide to move, we have a guide here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#moving-to-wordpress-org

  3. Thank you very much, i'll make the decision later this week ;)

  4. You are welcome!
