Transfer cPanel WordPress blog to Free Alternative.

  1. Hello! I was wondering it was possible to transfer a pre-existing blog with an extensive amount of post to a free alternative like wordpress.com? Would I be able to retain the theme i am currently using and will the structure stay the same?

    The blog I need help with is aprochfilms.ca.

  2. The blog you specified at aprochfilms.ca does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

    This is an automated message.

  3. See this Support page:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/

    Posts and other data can be imported, but not the theme and structure as such, especially if you have special add-ons or plugins.

  4. The rules here for what you can and can't do with your blog are different than for a self hosted site - best to review them before the move just in case
