Are the engineers willing to do a guided transfer of my blog from .com to .org while I have a Premium theme? I don’t care if it looks a little off from what I have at .com. As long as it is similar. Is anyone willing to do that?
The blog I need help with is workoutlab.net.
We’d be happy to assist. The premium theme upgrades are only valid here at WordPress.com, but you can switch your site to a free theme first and then purchase the Guided Transfer.
Yes, thank you. I was trying to transfer over to Blaskan theme but it will not allow me to display any widgets on a sidebar. I have tried the troubleshooting tutoral on support, but nothing happens. Help!
We can’t help with questions about themes external to WordPress.com.
Ummm… Blaskan is a WP.com theme…
Thanks, I’ll read slower next time.
Then you won’t be able to use the theme at all on a WP.org blog.
I think bradborland trying to do what hewsut said above. As he has a premium theme and as it cannot be exported he’s chnaging to the free Blaskan theme before the guided transfer takes place.
Yes! I wanted to go to Blaskan but it won’t display the sidebar for some reason.
I see, and you’ve selected the two-column layout?: http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/blaskan/
Yes, and I have troubleshot the problem through Support with no success.
Well, it’s risky but you could put your blog here into a different theme, then put it into Blaskan over at your .org blog and troubleshoot there. It’s possible that whatever is interfering here wouldn’t with an independent blog.
I figured it out – I used a different browser.
okay, still showing up without sidebar in IE and Firefox but not in Google Chrome – what gives? Is this what my audience will see too?
I see the sidebar in Firefox.
what about IE? I am hoping it is just an update issue with my archaic work desktop…
Okay, last question (getting back to the original topic): I have managed to switch over to a free WP theme. In the Store it is still stating that they do not support transfers for Premium Themes with no option to buy.
I have a WP theme now…?
I’m sorry this has been such a clumsy experience. I’ve made some changes for you in our system. Give the store a shot now in your dashboard — you should be good to go.
Thanks hewsut! It looks good now. Will the transfer make my blog look like it is now or do I need to pick a theme, host, etc.?
