    Greetings!

    I have a friend transferring his blog from wordpress.com to wordpress.org, and he wants to keep his theme, Misty Lake (by Automattic). Is there any way to download the theme to be used on wordpress.org?

    Thanks!

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

    Howdy! Misty Lake will soon be available to WordPress.org users — I don’t know exactly when, but it was just submitted to start the review process today, as a matter of fact! Stay tuned. :)

    Any word about the Misty Lake theme? I’m assuming it’ll be in the wordpress.org theme repository when it’s ready, right? Thanks!

    How long does the review process usually take? We want to move our existing blog and content to .org and I am just curious of the time frame so I can plan accordingly. Thanks!

    Staff, it’s been over a month, is this normal?
    At this point I’m giving up and going with another theme…

    Yes, it’s perfectly normal. WordPress.com staff can’t give you a time frame for this adaptation: I’ve seen it take years. If you are waiting for this theme specifically, I recommend not.

    Over a month is normal. :) Review for themes on WordPress.org is done on a volunteer basis, so it usually takes anywhere from 2 weeks to a couple months for a theme to be approved for inclusion in the themes repository.

    Unfortunately it looks like the Misty Lake theme wasn’t approved and since there was no reply from Automattic the submission is currently closed. You can see the progress here:

    You can however easily download the Misty Lake theme from:

    Howdy! I’ll let our team know about the status of Misty Lake. We have plans to resubmit it, although I can’t give a timeframe. In the meantime, yes, you can download our version of Misty Lake from the link that @design311 provided.
