    I have imported and exported http://momity.wordpress.com to http://momity.ca but I really want the Fjords04 theme with my header and everything else I have already set up.

    When i downloaded and activiated the theme there were only Widget and Menu options. No header. So i’m wondering if there is a way I can have everything copied over? Help!

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is momity.ca.

    The blog you specified at momity.ca does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.

    Hi there,
    The versions of themes with the same name are either for WordPress.com software or for WordPress.org software. They are not identical.

    The widgets that come with WordPress.org installs do not include any of the WordPress.com “in-house” widgets and those widgets cannot be exorted and imported.

    The content in text widgets cannot be expetorted and must be copied and pasted.

    As for your header image, if you cannot locate it in your Media Libraryin your install tyhen you will have to upload it.

    Lastly note you must go to the top right hand corner of this page http://wordpress.org/support/ and register a username account there as all your support issues with your WordPress.org install must be posted there.
