Hi all. My first post - My 4th day with wordpress.
I have this norwegian blog: webartikler.wordpress.com.
I've set up a redirecting at my own domain like this: blogg.webartikler.com -> pointing to webartikler.wordpress.com.
Now, since some of the text, like the link for "HOME" and so on, can't be edited unless I buy credits(?) I was thinking of running the wordpress script fully on my own server. (e.g hostgator) - also to have more freedom when it comes to designs and so on...
I've downloaded and installed from wordpress.org, and I'm now running this on localhost.
If I run my own wordpress script, with my own host and domainname: Will I lose the benefits I have by running my blog through subdomain.wordpress.com, like the navigation bar on the top when I'm logged in, the possibilities I have for some extra traffic sources, thinking for instance about the frontpage of WordPress.com.
A little more concise:
Will I still be a part of the "wordpress.com community", and will wordpress.com have ANY relation to my new blog at ALL, or will I be completely on my own - like if wordpress-blogs didn't exist?
Looking forward to your answers..
