    Hey everybody
    In our country, Iran, wordpress.com is blocked for visitors.
    I have a blog and I can buy for it .com domain. So it will exclude the blocking list because wordpress.com will not be in the address anymore.
    But there will be still another problem not solved. Images and the files. they have wordpress.com in their address as you know. I can upload my files and images in another server but the problem remains with the header…
    I wish somebody help me.
    regards

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

    Iran has been known to block WordPress.com blogs, and there is nothing that we can do about this. As a workaround, you can try using a VPN or proxy to access the blog. The following links provide some options that you may be able to explore and/or use:

    We have also heard that some users have had luck simply by using Opera Turbo:

    I really hope this helps and you’ll find a way to access/update your blog!

    On the images issue, you can upload them to an image sharing site and then insert them into your posts and pages by URL. That isn’t the most convenient workaround, but it will take care of the wordpress.com in the image URL issue.

    In that case, it’s probably best to stick with a theme that allows you to not use a header image, like Twenty Eleven.
