Theme witnin a theme

  1. I would like to add this blog
    http://cvtsports.wordpress.com
    with it's theme (Journalist v1.9) to my BlueHost server which uses Modfolio 2.9.0 theme for my website.
    http://www.crowleyphotos.com

    Is it possible to have a theme within a theme? Currently my blog is a link on my photo website. Can I move the blog to my server and keep the theme of the blog and continue to use the main theme of my website?

    What are the limits to my blog in terms of space? At some point will I need to pay a fee for adding video and other media to my blog if it stays with WordPress as host? If not then the above is not necessary and I can just stay with it as a link and let WordPress host it.

    New to all this so any help is appreciated.
    Roger

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

  2. Hi crowleyvt,

    > Is it possible to have a theme within a theme?

    Unfortunately, it's not possible. Two themes can not be activated at the same time for a WordPress site.

    > What are the limits to my blog in terms of space?

    Here is the link where you can find about space in free WordPress.com blogs. http://en.support.wordpress.com/space-upgrade/

    Please let me know if you need further assistance.

  3. Actually with a little work I was able to add Journalist v9 to Modfolio 2.9. I now have two custom menus that are not part the main Modfolio theme but separate; Multimedia and Beyond the Score. There are features (manage subscriptions) that WordPress.com has that I'm not able to use at this point but working on it.

    Check it out.

  4. Hi crowleyvt,

    I'm glad you were able to find a solution for your theme. If you're interested in bringing some of the WordPress.com features to your self-hosted site (including subscription management), you might wish to check out the JetPack plugin if you haven't already: http://jetpack.me/ .
