    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.

    Hi,

    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.

    Blaskan is not an external theme. We have a version of it here. http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/blaskan/

    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.

    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…?

    Hi Brad,

    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.?
