    Hi. I'm new and self-taught on using WordPress. It's been a long and daunting process. I've decided on using the Heatmap Pro v5 theme and i'm downloading skins and plugins and import/export plugins to go with the upgrade from the Heatmap basic I got from WordPress themes.

    I got this error message, "WXR file, missing/invalid WXR version number" and i'm not sure what to do. Can someone please help? What will this effect? How can I resolve this?

    My website is http://www.krazyforcoupons.com

    Thanks in advance!

    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs and we cannot install individual plugins or any themes into them. The themes and plugins found on the internet are for wordpress.ORG installs which run on different software.

    On free hosted wordpress.COM blogs we can only use the themes which have been coded to run on this multi-user software and made available to us here. > Appearance > Themes and no others. We cannot edit either themes or templates on free hosted wordpress.COM blogs. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    If you wish to have complete control over a blog, the ability to upload themes and plugins, and to edit themes and templates then your option is to hire a web host and get a free software install from WordPress.ORG and self host it.
