I am trying to export my travel blog onto my home computer. I follow the instructions: ‘Go to My Site → Settings and select the Export option in the Site Tools section at the bottom to download a copy of your blog’s content.’ It sounds simple, but everytime I try to do this (using either Safari or Chrome), the only thing that ends up on my computer is a crackling fireplace app. Obviously I’m doing something very wrong?!?
it seems that your site is not hosted on WordPress.com, but it’s a self-hosted WordPress.org one. So we won’t be able to help you in this forum. You can read more about the difference here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
